Panic! At The Disco, fronted by Brendon Urie, announced they will be hitting the road again this summer, with a sixth studio album on the way.
The alternative band, now solely led by Urie, is best known for the 2005 smash hit, “I Write Sins Not Trajedies,” which has been a staple song of the early 2000s. In 2016, Panic! returned with Death Of A Bachelor, Urie’s first solo project after the departure of Panic! co-founder Spencer Smith. The album features songs “Victorious” and “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time,” offering a blend of orchestral pop-punk and rock. Urie’s voice is undeniable, with a unique tune across all of the album’s tracks, along with catchy, original lyrics.
Just two years later, he announced that his sixth album, Pray for the Wicked, is due June 22 via Ramen/DCD2 Records. Two tracks from the record have already dropped – “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” and “(Fuck A) Silver Lining.” Both singles are easily recognizable as Panic! tunes, however, they add a fresh, edgy tone to Urie’s compilation.
Urie, who starred on the Broadway show Kinky Boots for ten weeks, has taken a small break from the music scene, but is back with a new perspective.
“After being away in New York for months doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to LA,” Urie said in a press release. “I was so revved up that I asked some friends to come over to my home studio to help me write about all the incredible things I’ve experienced the last couple of years. Pray for the Wicked is my ‘thank you’ to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making album.”
Panic! will kick off its tour on July 11 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and run throughout August, wrapping up on August 18 in Urie’s hometown, Las Vegas, Nevada. The band will be joined by openers A R I
Z O N A and Hayley Kiyoko.
Pray for the Wicked is now available for pre-order, and fans who place an order before 9 p.m. on March 29 have early access to Panic!’s upcoming tour. Pre-sale tickets go on sale March 30 at 9 a.m., three hours before general public tickets are available. Check out the list of tour dates below.
