Following a surprise club show in Cleveland and rumors of new material, Panic! at the Disco confirms their sixth album, Pray for the Wicked. The 11-track LP is the latest release since their 2016 Death of A Bachelor. For two years, the band has stayed relatively quiet but have returned with the same electric energy we’ve all loved since their days of heavy eyeliner and interrupting weddings.
The band has unveiled the first two singles, “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” and “(Fuck A) Silver Lining,” plus a music video to match. In addition, they have also announced complete tour dates for their forthcoming album. (Spoiler: no Manila just yet)
In a press release for Billboard, frontman Brendon Urie expressed his excitement and sentiments over their upcoming release. “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. 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,” he shared. According to the singer, Pray for the Wicked is their “thank you” to the fans.
Pray for the Wicked officially drops June 22 on Fueled by Ramen.
