Panic! At the Disco Kicks off a New Era with “Viva Las Vengeance”

After a four-year album release hiatus, Panic! At the Disco is back. (Same panic different disco, if you will.) Kicking off this new era is the single release of the song “Viva Las Vengeance,” the title track from the pop group’s forthecoming album on August 19.

“Viva Las Vengeance” is a punchy, upbeat track that highlights frontman Brendon Urie’s finetuned wailings. I don’t wanna be a diva/ I just wanna be free, Urie sings, On a sofa with Sativa/ Living the dream. Urie also delivers these lyrics in a Brendan Walter, ’80s-inspired tragic music video. Watch the “Viva Las Vengeance” music video below.

Of the album, Urie remembers that inspiration bubbled up naturally. “Viva Las Vengeance is a look back at who I was 17 years ago and who I am now with the fondness I didn’t have before,” Urie said in a statement. “I didn’t realize I was making an album and there was something about the tape machine that kept me honest.”

To support Panic! At the Disco’s seventh album, the pop outfit has announced their Viva Las Vengeance World Tour. The tour will get rollin’ in September in Austin, Texas, and wrap up in San Francisco, California, in October. Find the full list of tour dates below.
