"It documented this blur that had become our lives..."



Pete Wentz has spoken about Fall Out Boy's 'Infinity On High' and what it meant to him.

In a post on their website he wrote...

"This one was strange. it was transitional. If FUCT was the caterpillar album- 'Infinity On High' was the cocoon one. we had been on tour around the world nonstop but hadn’t really seen any of the magazine covers we were on or had any perspective of seeing our videos on TRL- it was odd how everything was changing but it felt like we were in a time capsule… this record would bring so many ideas from jay z doing the intro to working with baby face on 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs' to the flight 101 saga (3 shows in a day in ny, chicago, and la)… but first and foremost it documented this blur that had become our lives. This record more than any of the others has always reminded me of night time- both the anxiety of insomnia and the peace of being awake when everyone else is asleep. I remember before we released it I used like a security blanket listening and trying to fall asleep. I really appreciate everyone who gave this one a chance.
