Panic! At The Disco Returns with New Album, 'Miss Jackson' Single
Alt-rock group will join Fall Out Boy on tour following headlining dates.
Panic! At The Disco is back a new album and a single to preview its fourth studio full-length. On Monday (July 15), the group released the official music video for "Miss Jackson," the first single off their forthcoming album, "Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die," due out Oct. 8 on Fueled By Ramen/Decaydance.
The new track features biting lyrics that tell the story of being obsessively in love with a woman who’s hard to pin down. Meanwhile, the dark, gritty music video features Panic! frontman Brendon Urie in a trance-like state as he wildly roams the Las Vegas area in pursuit of the illusive "Miss Jackson." Katrina Bowden, who played Cerie on "30 Rock," co-stars.
According to a press release, Panic!'s fourth studio album was produced by Butch Walker and finds the group "paying homage to their Las Vegas roots." The follow-up to 2011's "Vices & Virtues" marks the group's second album since Ryan Ross and Jon Walker left the lineup in 2009.
"I had all these sounds in my head," says Urie in a statement. "I just had to figure out how to get them out. So I just kept writing, writing, and writing until eventually we had all these songs and I was like, 'This is it. This is the record I want to make.' I knew it would happen, and finally it's here."
Next month, Panic! At The Disco will be hitting the road to promote their upcoming record with a short headlining tour at intimate venues, beginning Aug. 4 in Norfolk. The band will then joining longtime friends Fall Out Boy as their main support for the reunited group's arena tour.
