- Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy rose to national prominence with the release of their From Under The Cork Tree album in the Spring of 2005. By the end of the year, they had 2 Top 10 hits under their belt and Pete Wentz was quickly becoming a household name. The next few years cemented their place as one of the top alternative bands of the 2000s, selling over 7 million albums worldwide. Among their many tour dates last decade, Fall Out Boy also headlined our Jingle Ball in 2007. In late 2009, the band took a hiatus to focus on their personal lives, during which time the guys also dabble with some side projects, including a solo album from lead singer Patrick Stump. But in 2013 Fall Out Boy decided it was time to reunite, and they returned over the summer with the smash hit My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark and a headlining tour. Their current single Alone Together is a milestone for the band, as it marks their 10th Top 40 hit. The End is happy to welcome superstars Fall Out Boy back to the Jingle Ball stage this year!
- Panic! At The DIsco
Panic! At The Disco was signed to their record deal by none other than Pete Wentz from our Jingle Ball headliners, Fall Out Boy. They were the first signing to Pete's new label, Decaydence Records. Panic! rose to national prominence in 2006 with their hit "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," which would eventually peak at #2. Members of the band include charismatic lead singer Brendon Urie, along with Spencer Smith on drums, and newer addition Dallon Weekes on bass. They just released their 4th album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die, in October, and are poised to return to the spotlight with catchy songs like "Miss Jackson" and "Girls/Girls/Boys," for which Brendon shot a rather intimate video! We're excited to have both Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco on stage this year at Jingle Ball 2013.
They may not have won X Factor last season (they finished 4th), but you would never know it based on the success Emblem 3 has enjoyed in 2013. Brothers Wesley and Keaton along with their friend Drew released their debut album in July, have already hit the Top 40 with their song "Chloe," and are now quickly climbing the charts with their follow-up single "3000 Miles," a warm ballad about missing home and that special someone. Molded by Simon Cowell on television, Emblem3 has come into their own and gained legions of fans on the road this year with a headlining tour over the summer, and a prime slot opening for Selena Gomez this fall.
- American Authors
You may not be familiar with their name yet, but chances are you've heard their song "Best Day Of My Life" in a commercial or movie trailer in the past few months. American Authors first met as students while attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, then moved to NYC to start their band. They signed a record deal in 2013, released their debut EP in August, and are now gaining fans across the country quickly with their energetic live shows. The End is happy to welcome American Authors to the Jingle Ball stage!
Growing up in the suburbs of Sacramento, Cimorelli is 6 sisters who started harmonizing together around the house at a very young age. They decided to take it seriously, formed a group, and began posting videos of themselves singing cover songs on YouTube. Their hard work eventually landed them a record deal! While they moved to LA a couple years ago to pursue their music career full time, the sisters still love reminiscing about how they attended The End's Jingle Ball concerts in the past, and how exciting it is for them to be actually performing on stage this time! Jingle Ball will cap off an exciting year for Cimorelli, who over the summer won a Teen Choice Award for Choice Web Star, and also appeared and sang on Good Morning America! Extremely active on social media, Cimorelli has gained fans worldwide not only for their singing, but also for their positive and inspiring outlook on life.
- Kalin & Myles
Music's got a long history of impressive duos, from Simon & Garfunkel to Method Man & Redman. There's just something special about a tag team of two distinct personalities joining forces for a singular musical mission. After crossing paths at a local movie theater in 2011 and following up with each other on Facebook, Kalin & Myles began formally making music together, creating their own beats, singing, and rapping in a style blending Hip-Hop and Pop which they lovingly refer to as Hip-Pop. They performed shows with the likes of Austin Mahone and Megan & Liz and slowly developed a fervent fan base. Headline gigs then started selling out. They'll be releasing their 2nd EP in December, and are stoked to be making their Sacramento debut at Jingle Ball!
