Fall Out Boy aren't just helping to Save The Music with us- they're out to Save Rock And Roll!
And, because a picture is worth a thousand song lyrics, they're starting with this amazing album cover!
Where did they get such a striking image? We'll just let the band tell you themselves. They wrote:
"when we were beginning the journey of making this record we wanted to find some inspirational images.
we came across the punk and monk image on the Internet and it really solidified what we were trying to get across on the record- the idea of old and new clashing. tradition and change coming together. there was something striking about it.
obviously this is an image that means a lot to many people- we felt like we wanted to be part of this conversation. these kids represent the youth, change and irreverence that we hope our record is listened to with. at the end of the day we just want to take the rules and start all over with save rock and roll anyway.
shout out to Roger Stonehouse for capturing the original photo and allowing us to share it with the world"
And thanks to Pete Wentz and the gang for passing the Saving onto us! LOLz! Can't wait for the record!
