Las Vegas baroque poppers Panic! At The Disco are back with a new album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!, due out Oct. 8.
A headlining tour will precede the release, including a date at the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool on Oct. 11. The band will also tour in support of Fall Out Boy later in the fall.
The new record, out of Fueled By Ramen/Decaydance, is produced by Butch Walker and marks the trio’s fourth studio album and first release since 2011.
Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! finds the guys paying homage to their hometown via a “glittery sonic approach” and songs with titles such as “Vegas Lights.” The album title itself is a Hunter S. Thompson quote from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
“I had these sounds in my head,” frontman Brendon Urie said 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.”
The band also released the video for their new single “Miss Jackson,” which involves a sleazy motel and some seriously Imagine Dragons-esque chanting choruses. Also, ninja swords. Check it out.
Tickets for the Cosmopolitan show cost $26 and go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and the Cosmopolitan box office.
