Panic! At the Disco


With the exclamation point safely placed back in their name, Panic! At the Disco have returned to their noir-esque, weird selves as they prepare to release their latest album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, also complete with an exclamation point. The title, a reference to Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas keeps up with the band’s attraction to literary themes (see also: the numerous Chuck Palahniuk-inspired lyrics in their debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out), and In honor of the album’s release, the band will take their lit love to the extreme by participating in the interactive Macbeth play Sleep No More and giving a concert at the formerly abandoned McKittrick Hotel in Chelsea.
