Pete Wentz and co. to be first band to play all 7 continents

Fall Out Boy are set to break a world-record, when they will play a show at a scientific colony on March 25.

The band will make the journey to Antarctica with Greenpeace and will bring a crew to film the trek in order to document the impact of global warming.

A certified recorder from the Guinness Book Of World Records will also be present to record the ground-breaking event.

No further details have been made available, but Pete Wentz himself confirmed the event on his blog at the weekend with a promise to unveil more details soon.
