Making of the Album

The band recorded its second album Fly or Die during 2003. The band actually learnt the bands to play the tunes live as Chad Hugo told MTV News on December 9, 2003. "We're the ones playing the instruments live this time. "I just started playing guitar last year so I'm learning as we go. Pharrell's playing drums. [Last time] we didn't have time to learn certain instruments so we got Spymob to help us out."

The band also recruited some assistance to record the album with Lenny Kravitz playing on the track "Maybe" and Joel Madden and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte playing on the track "Jump". Several of tracks concern issues of particular concern to adolescents including "Thrasher" about bullies, "Drill Sergeant" about rebellion and first love on "Backseat Love".

Chart success

Fly or Die went on sale on March 23, 2004. The lead off single "She Wants to Move" has so far gone top 10 in New Zealand, top 20 in Norway, Ireland and Denmark and top 40 in Australia and the Netherlands as of March 2004.
