As you are all aware this blog hasn't been updated in forever and I must apologize for that.
However at this moment I don't think I"ll be updating it again. With work keeping me busy and having very little time to sit down and update ICH on a real computer I have decided to close ICH for the time being.
However I have created a Tumblr so that I can reblog any new information and videos of the boys. You guys can also submit any things I might be missing and we can have more of a community again.
You can find us at: ICH tumblr
Thank you everyone who has stuck around. I still love this band and am greatful for the years of community and friendship this place has given me and wish I could have done it the justice it deserved,

Mary J. Blige, Fall Out Boy and Train also set to perform at Washington, D.C.'s National Mall on April 18th
For the past fifteen years, FALL OUT BOY has been producing emotionally charged, metaphor riddled songs that reverberate through both Pete Wentz poster-plastered bedrooms and grown-up homes alike. FOB released their sixth studio album, 'American Beauty/American Psycho', this past month and came in at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. While this album's immense commercial success is heartening to hardcore FOB fans, it's the evolving shifts in narrative and the thoughtful lyricism that keeps fans filling out venues and expressing their intense love via Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and more.
Fall Out Boy are set to take the stage at WESTFEST 2015 next week (you can enter to win tickets here), and meanwhile the guys are busy hanging with friends and performing at Soundwave in Australia. FOB bassist and lyricist PETE WENTZ took some time away from the festival scene to chat with us about the newest album, art direction, and bubble baths...
"This album is more like a modern romance. It’s like the inside of someone’s head. The same person who is saying they think they fell in love again is the same person who is saying, ‘Maybe this is too much cough syrup.' They’re all in the same person’s head, and maybe the beauty and the madness is all in one person..."
COUP DE MAIN: Congrats on the release of ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’! I really, really love it. How does it feel to have a sixth album out? It’s quite a feat!
PETE WENTZ: It’s insane! If you told me fifteen years ago that we would be still doing this now, and we would have a sixth album, that would be insane. I would never have thought that that was even a possible reality.
We already knew that Fall Out Boy have become the ultimate Jock Jam masters, with their songs played in arenas all over America. But we didn’t know that Pete, Patrick, Joe and Andy could be the athletes too!
In their new video for “Irresistible,” a track off their American Beauty/American Psycho album, the guys strap on their terry-cloth headbands, hike up their short-shorts and just fail so hard at basketball. It’s one of those things that’s so bad that it’s actually good, you know?
FOB poke fun at themselves as they play against a tall, skilled team of ballers. But oddly, the people on the bleachers are eating up the mishaps of the short, clumsy kids. As the score racks up against them, Fall Out Boy gain the attention of that girl in the stands, along with the approval of granny and a crusty-looking guy with his thumbs up.
I wish failing was always this good!
