Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling artists Fall Out Boy’s sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, marking the band’s third #1 album. The album – released January 20 on Island Records & DCD2 Records – racked up more than 218,000 total units consumed, further cementing the group’s position as one of rock music’s biggest-selling bands.

Additionally, the track “Irresistible” and the highly-buzzed about “Uma Thurman” have already found their way to the Hot 100 chart on the heels of a massive release week.
American Beauty/American Psycho’s #1 debut marks a 40 percent increase over their first week sales of Save Rock and Roll’s debut at the top – a rare feat in the music industry’s current climate.  

Entertainment Weekly bestowed an “A” grade on the album, citing that the band, “against all odds… have claimed an elusive status as elder statesmen who still have both ideas in their skulls and fire in their bellies” while Rolling Stone praises that “when everything connects… Fall Out Boy are a glorious nexus of Seventies glitter rock, Eighties radio pop, Nineties R&B and Aughts electro stomp.”

Fall Out Boy will take the record on the road this summer on the Boys of Zummer tour alongside Wiz Khalifa and special guest Hoodie Allen. The tour kicks off June 10 in Camden, NJ and will continue through cities including Chicago, Toronto, Nashville, St. Louis, Atlanta, Dallas and Las Vegas before concluding at Los Angeles’ famed Hollywood Bowl on August 10. Tickets are available now at www.livenation.com.
