pop-rock royalty makes a return!
Panic! At The Disco are heading back to Australia this year with their sixth album Pray For The Wicked behind them, hitting up all-ages shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne this October.
Pray For The Wicked is due out Friday June 22, their latest since 2016′s Death of a Bachelor.
Frontman Brendon Urie said the album was inspired by his stint on Broadway performing in Kinky Boots.
“After being away in New York doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to LA,” says Urie. “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.”
This marks Panic!’s return 13 years after they first burst onto the scene with 2005’s platinum, emo-fuelled debut, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. Now, anticipation for Pray For The Wicked is high – just witness the video for rousing first single ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’ (the final instalment of a trilogy, following earlier clips ‘This Is Gospel’ and ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’).
With a huge 28-city USA run kicking off in July and headlining Reading & Leeds in August, Panic! At The Disco’s unstoppable energy and a setlist jam-packed with the best of all six albums makes this a tour not to be missed!

A new album is cool and all, but for now we’re just going to leave this here…
