The All-American Rejects were overtaken by events when their self-titled debut album whipped up a storm. Initially a small release on US indie label Doghouse, it bagged them a major deal with DreamWorks and excitable reviews referencing influential names, including The Who , The Cars and Weezer. By this time, Ritter and Wheeler needed some solitude — partly to create new material, but also to reflect on the relentless rollercoaster ride of the past five years.
