Fall Out Boy subsequently signed with Island Records and released the EP "My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue." This was followed in 2005 by the studio album "From Under the Cork Tree," which became Fall Out Boy's mainstream breakthrough when it debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200. The album spawned the hit singles "Sugar, We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance." The band enjoyed even greater success with its next studio album, 2007's "Infinity on High."
