Following the video premiere of “The Ballad Of Mona Lisa” off their upcoming album, Vices & Virtues, Panic! At The Disco‘s Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith stopped by MTV to showcase their all-growed-up new look, which seemingly borrows equally from The Killers and the movie Newsies. All that’s missing are some tilted newsboy caps!

Panic! At The Disco also answered our Buzzworthy questions about the upcoming album, discussed the impetus for “The Ballad Of Mona Lisa” and that pesky exclamation point (and what happened when it disappeared). Of the new album’s influences (Peter Gabriel, what up???), the boys shared that we can expect a lot of synth, and a definitive departure from the stuff you heard on previous Panic albums.

And, oh yeah, on the whole boys-wearing-makeup thing? No apologies needed. Apparently, make-up was initially invented for men. So there! The more you know, right?
