FUSE TV - Fall Out Boy Use Burmese "Punk and Monk" Photo for New Album Cover

Following Fall Out Boy's sweaty, speedy set at SXSW, the pop-punk quartet have unveiled the cover art for their Elton John-featuring comeback album Save Rock and Roll

While their previous album covers have ranged from cartoonish to surreal, Fall Out Boy's latest is a striking photograph of two stylistically diametric boys from Burma holding hands. One boy is garbed in traditional monk robes, while the other is a punk-clad kid caught defiantly blowing cigarette smoke from his mouth. 

According to the vinyl-burning rockers, "These kids represent the youth, change and irreverence that we hope our record is listened to with." FOB said they found this "punk and monk image" from National Geographic-published photographer Roger Stonehouse and chose to use it because "it really solidified what we were trying to get across on the record: The idea of old and new clashing." 

FYI, the original photo from Stonehouse (which you can check out below and on his site) shows the punkier boy was actually wearing an AC/DC t-shirt, which FOB presumably edited out due to potential copyright issues.
