Fall Out Boy formed in the early 2000s during a resurgence of emo pop-rock. Hailing from Chicago, the group originally came up in the punk scene with the pop-rock group only being a side project. Under the direction of Pete Wentz, the group eventually hit the mainstream with the debut album, "Under the Cork Tree."
Featuring overture interludes that wouldn't be out of place during a long shot of the Tantive IV, a few moms vying for a better view of Claudio Sanchez's sprawling mane and choruses trusted to masses of loyalists, Coheed and Cambria provided a nostalgic escape for long-time fans and a glimpse into a fantasy world for new recruits.
A barrage of merchandise tents, non-profits, stages with unfamiliar faces (and names) and active half-pipes is likely to overwhelm even a veteran Warped fan.
Sure, it's been done before. Cursive's done it. Panic! At the Disco did it. The emo concept album, that is. But few bands are quite as ambitious as the Dear Hunter.
