The Maine, Pete Wentz and Nick Santino
Snapped at the Maine’s album release party for their full-length debut Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Kennedy Brock, Garrett Nickelsen and Pat Kirch struck a pose with Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and Nick Santino (formerly of A Rocket To The Moon).
Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy really embraced the boxing theme of this photo shoot.
Panic! At The Disco
Panic! At The Disco released their sophomore effort Pretty. Odd. in the spring of 2008 and soon after embarked on the Honda Civic Tour with support from the Hush Sound, Motion City Soundtrack, and Phantom Planet. Death Cab For Cutie ended up joining two of the dates. The band went on to co-headline the Rock Band Live tour with Dashboard Confessional that fall, which would end up being their last with guitarist/vocalist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker who both left in July 2009.

In the fall of 2008, Pierce The Veil embarked on a headliner deemed The Delicious Tour with support from Breathe Carolina, Emarosa and Four Letter Lie. While in Portland at the Hawthorne Theatre, the band headed to a neighboring porch for a photo shoot (with the permission of the “extremely nice lady” who owned it, of course).
The Academy Is…
The Academy Is… posed backstage at Y100’s Jingle Ball where they performed in Florida as part of an all-star lineup that also included Fall Out Boy, the Veronicas, Katy Perry, Kevin Rudolf, Rihanna, Jesse McCartney and Lady Gaga. The band had recently released their third LP, Fast Times At Barrington High, which would end up being their final full-length before their 2011 disbandment.

This shot was snapped in the summer of 2008 while Bring Me The Horizon were out on Warped Tour, a few months from the release of their sophomore record, Suicide Season.
Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy and Katy Perry
Even 10 years ago, Katy Perry was embracing wacky yet totally on-theme outfits as seen here. The former Warped alums power couple attended the opening of Recycling Operations Center Las Vegas in New York.
Boys Like Girls
Boys Like Girls rocked the scene with their self-titled debut in 2006, which housed the uber-catchy “The Great Escape.” In early 2008, the album became certified gold and the single hit platinum status. The band’s success led to charting on TRL and the above visit where they shared the stage with the Jonas Brothers and Lady Gaga.
