It has been four years since Panic! At the Disco released their last album Pray for the Wicked, which included the famous song High Hopes. Now Brendon Urie‘s band is back with Viva Las Vengeance, their latest single, which bears the same name as the album it is part of.
The album will be released next August 19 and will have 12 songs along with the one we can already listen to on all platforms: Viva las Vengeance. Both the album, as well as the song itself, intend to make a comparison between the Brendon of seventeen years ago (when he started in the music world) and the singer he is today. It is a journey in retrospective about the changes, novelties and the whole course of a musical career of almost twenty years.
The release of the album, after four years, is already a great news, but this kind of news is always accompanied by more surprises. The whole band, Panic! At the Disco, have already planned their next tour, which will start on September 8 of this year and will tour several cities in the United States, Europe and the United Kingdom.
For some time now, the band has had its own foundation, Highest Hopes Foundation, which helps other organizations that work in the fight for human rights, especially treating communities subject to discrimination or abuse based on gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity. This collaboration has led to the fact that for every ticket sold on their tour, one euro, pound or dollar will be donated to the foundation and therefore to these same associations.
The tracklist of Viva Las Vengeance contains the songs: Viva Las Vengeance, Middle of a breakup, Don’t let the light go out, Local god, Star spangled banger, God killed Rock and Roll, Say it louder, Sugar soaker, Something about Maggie, Sad clown, All by yourself and Do it to death.
Viva Las Vengeance already has a videoclip, and following the line of what Brendon Urie and his band intend to do with this album, that longing of years and years in music since they started until what they are today, may have some reflection in the title of the song itself and also in the video, which refers to the city that, as a band, saw them born.
