Pete Wentz is an American musician best known for being the bassist and primary lyricist for the American rock band Fall Out Boy. He also owns a record label, Decaydance Records.
He was one of the featured "Artist Development Team" members in the reality television series Opening Act, in 2012.
Fall Out Boy released two multi-platinum albums that spawned the chart topping hits Sugar, We're Going Down, Dance, Dance, Thnks Fr Th Mmrs and This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race, among others.
After riding to multi-platinum, global fame over a number of years, Wentz needed to do something completely different – which lead to the creation of his new project, Black Cards. Black Cards' music draws from Wentz's experience on the DJ circuit over several years.
An accomplished writer, Wentz released the book The Boy With A Thorn In His Side, which has sold more than 10,000 copies to date and served as the inspiration for his clothing line Clandestine Industries.
He was also the host of a weekly radio show on Sirius/XM Pete Wentz's Hits and Misses, previously and a host and co-producer of the MTV show F'N MTV.
He currently resides in Los Angeles.
