Panic! At The Disco Announce New Album, Release Emperor’s New Clothes Video
Panic! At The Disco have announced details of their brand-new album, released a brilliant new video/single, and confirmed details of several album release shows in the UK and America… PHEW.
Following their mysterious teaser earlier in the week, Panic! have revealed that their upcoming album, Death Of A Bachelor, will be out on January 15 through DCD2/Fueled By Ramen, and you can pre-order it now at this link.
On top of that, a video for new single Emperor’s New Clothes has hit the Internet – and frontman Brendon’s not quite looking himself in it. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
“When I was a little kid and I heard a song I liked on tv, I would jump up and run to the piano to try and figure it out by ear,” Brendon says. “When I was 10 or 11, I built myself a drum kit in the garage made out of empty laundry detergent buckets, old lawn chairs, paint cans, and old trash cans. Around that time, my parents got me my first guitar. A baby acoustic. I jumped between all of these instruments constantly to satisfy the ideas I heard in my head. At this young age, I realized that music would play a huge part in my life. I had no idea. Death Of A Bachelor is in honor of those times I spent alone as a kid. Allowing music to consume me. Playing everything myself just to get the idea right and out of my head. It’s a beginning to a new era. And an homage to how it all began. This album is me. Running to the piano. Building a drum kit. Strumming a guitar. Some things never change.”
