In addition, Fall Out Boy has released their new iPhone App, which will allow fans to purchase tickets right from their iPhone. The app also continues to bring Fall Out Boy and their fans closer. With the GPS-aware functionality, fans can opt in to display their location and can share images and experiences from the shows every night as-it-happens with other fans all around the world.

Also, Fall Out Boy has been honored with the request from Matt Groening to record “The Simpsons” theme song. This will air during the January 25th episode on FOX.

“America’s Suitehearts” the current single from FOLIE à DEUX, has already made an impression. After premiering on The N and Yahoo Music on Jan 1, the video has now been added to all MTV platforms and Fuse. Also, it is currently airing in over 5,000 national movie theaters as well. The band will perform the song on Late Night With Conan O’Brien on Jan 21 and on Live With Regis and Kelly on Jan 22. The band is also performing in Tampa on January 29th at the Pepsi Smash, an official Super Bowl event. This will air live on VH1.

Prior to announcing ‘Believers Never Die Part Deux,’ Fall Out Boy performed intimate club shows in various cities, geared toward their fans. The shows were announced shortly before the dates, and fans dictated the set list. Markets included Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia, and more. The arena tour brings them to larger venues this time around – giving fans an incredible amount of music as they join up with be Cobra Starship, All Time Low, Metro Station and Hey Monday.

Fall Out Boy have built up a loyal following through relentless touring; they have performed over 1200 shows since their inception in 2000. The band’s 2007 release Infinity On High debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was the follow-up to From Under The Cork Tree, their Island debut of May 2005, which spent 72 weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
