Panic at the Disco announces sixth studio album

After a week of cryptic clues to their fans that set the internet a buzz, Grammy-nominated Panic! At The Disco has announced that their highly anticipated sixth studio album, Pray For The Wicked, will be released on June 22nd via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records. The album, produced by Jake Sinclair, features the singles “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” and “(Fuck A) Silver Lining.”

“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,” says Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco frontman. “Pray For The Wicked is my ‘thank you’ to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making album.”

Panic! At The Disco also unleashed an accompanying music video for “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” directed by longtime collaborator Daniel “Cloud” Campos and Spencer Susser. The video is part of a trilogy that acts as the prequel to “This Is Gospel” and “Emperor’s New Clothes,” also directed by Cloud.

The release of the album will be celebrated by a U.S. arena tour, produced by AEG Presents, that will kick off on July 11th in Minneapolis, MN, and will visit major markets throughout the summer before concluding in the band’s hometown of Las Vegas on August 18th. A R I Z O N A and Hayley Kiyoko be support for the 28 city tour. Fans who pre-order Pray for the Wicked via Panic’s webstore before March 29th at 9 pm ET will receive a unique pre-sale code for first access to tickets. Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning March 30th at 9:30 am local time and general tickets will be available to the public beginning March 30th at noon local time at PanicAtTheDisco.com.

Pray For The Wicked follows Panic! At The Disco’s critically acclaimed fifth album, Death Of A Bachelor, which was released on January 15, 2016 via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2017 GRAMMY Awards. The RIAA platinum selling release was the highest selling rock album and fourth-highest selling album released in 2016, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The album has also spawned RIAA certified gold tracks “Hallelujah,” “LA Devotee,” “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time” and platinum “Victorious,” “Death Of A Bachelor,” and “Emperor’s New Clothes.” Most recently, frontman Brendon Urie starred as Charlie Price in the critically acclaimed Broadway hit Kinky Boots.
