Fueled By Ramen/Decaydance recording group, Panic! At The Disco, will release their new album, “TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE!” on October 8th. The album – Panic! At The Disco’s fourth studio effort, is preceded by the first single and video for “Miss Jackson (feat. Lolo).” The single had a huge first week debut peaking at #9 on the iTunes Top Singles Chart with sales over 145,000 to date! Since its release, the official video, which was directed by Jordan Bahat and features actress Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), has reached over 4.5 million YouTube views. “This is Gospel”- another track from the album, also scaled the iTunes charts hitting #3, with over 40,000 singles sold and over 3.6 million YouTube views for the companion video. The album is now available to pre-order at iTunes, where it already hit Top 10 on the iTunes album chart.
Released in 2005, Panic! At The Disco’s platinum-certified debut, “A FEVER YOU CAN’T SWEAT OUT” remains one of the biggest selling debuts in Fueled By Ramen history. Singles like the 2x-platinum smash, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” earned the band international acclamation and a fervent fan following around the globe, also receiving a number of major honors including multiple Grammy® nominations and the prestigious MTV Video Music Awards “Video of the Year” prize for the “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” video.
Panic! At The Disco’s acclaimed second album, “PRETTY. ODD.” arrived in 2008, debuting at #2 on SoundScan/Billboard 200 album chart upon its initial release. The album’s popular success was matched by a wave of critical applause, with NME declaring it “a victory for artistic ambition over cynical careerism, one of the feel-good psych-pop albums of the year.”
Panic! At The Disco returned three years later with “VICES & VIRTUES.” The album – which features, “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” and “Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)” – made a spectacular chart entry upon its March 2011 release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #7, while also coming in at #2 on SoundScan’s “Alternative Albums” chart.
Panic! At The Disco just wrapped a sold out headline tour and North American tour with Fall Out Boy & Twenty One Pilots. The group is scheduled to begin touring Europe starting in November.
