He performed new songs at his debut solo performance at SXSW 2010 in Austin, Texas, including "As Long As I Know I'm Getting Paid" and "Love, Selfish Love", which may have originally been from an earlier version of his solo album, but have since been included as a part of his solo debut EP, Truant Wave.
Stump explained that he named the album Soul Punk because he wanted to contribute to the musical vernacular of both.
"I'm just as pissed off as I was while screaming in punk bands, but I feel like I'm directing it into something positive and centered around love." He created a video on his website that shows him playing numerous instruments, starting with drum kit then adding more such as synthesizer, cowbell, electric guitar and bass, amongst others.
In January 2015, the sixth album American Beauty/American Psycho was released.
Fall Out Boy's founding guitarist Joe Trohman met Stump over a mutual musical interest, and introduced Stump to bassist Pete Wentz.
The album's second single, "Dance, Dance", also enjoyed mainstream success, peaking at No.

The band heavily toured in 20 in support of From Under the Cork Tree, including headlining Warped Tour, the Nintendo Fusion Tour, and the Black Clouds And Underdogs tour, as well as playing a secret show under the name of Saved Latin at a small venue.
The next day (the Tuesday he was referring to), Stump released a remix of a Soul Punk track, "This City", featuring rapper Lupe Fiasco.
On July 26, the remix was released as the album's first single to i Tunes.
Infinity was spurred on by the lead single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", which hit No. "Thnks fr th Mmrs", the second single from the album, peaked at No. Fall Out Boy toured all year worldwide in support of it, with arena gigs in the US.
