03/25/2019 Cedar Rapids, Iowa — Stop Motion System, a group of rock music heavyweights is continuing its US tour and will stop make a stop in Iowa. The band consists of Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy, Partner’s Way), Bradley Bell (Chiodos), and Riley Breckenridge (Thrice, Dead Kennedys). The supergroup presents heavy, turn-of-the-century rock with a technical twist.

“We’re taking the best of our influences and moking (sic) something really special,” said Wentz in a recent interview via Blackberry. “We don’t want to forget our old bands, but we think Stop Motion System is something we will all be remembered by :)”

The tour is hitting smaller cities throughout the US in an attempt to capture the attention of many of the members’ longtime fans.

“When we first played, the Internet was changing the music industry,” texted Way. “Our styles of music made headway in the so-called ‘C markets’ through shopping malls and MySpace. This tour is our way to say ‘thank you’ to those fans.” At a reasonable $47 a ticket, many fans are taking the band’s “thank you” offer.

Stop Motion System will bring their angsty rock to the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9:00 p.m. From there, they head to Fargo, N.D., to continue their jaunt through the Midwest.
