Joining David Bowie and Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy is the latest addition to the list of musicians who kept their music a secret in 2013. Announcing their regroup last month, Fall Out Boy are making their comeback in a big way after four years of radio silence from the pop punk quartet.
Releasing their first single from the new album in February with My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up), Fall Out Boy have now made the new album’s name and cover art public. Save Rock and Roll features a picture of two young boys in Burma, with one wearing a monk’s rob and the other wearing a t-shirt and smoking a cigarette.
The band explain the symbolism of the picture on their website, posting “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. Obviously this is an image that means a lot to many people … these kids represent the youth, change and irreverence that we hope our record is listen to with.”
The band go on to say that the name choice for the album comes from their love of music, posting “When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. It’s why we started fall out boy in the first place. this isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. The future of fall out boy starts now. Save rock and roll…”
Fall Out Boy’s 34 date North American tour has already sold out, but tickets are still available for the band’s European and Asian dates. Save Rock and Roll is set to be released next month on April 16.
