Panic! At The Disco Talk About New Record

Posted by - 07:40 PM on 07/22/13
Panic! At The Disco talk about their new record with MTV.
"It's similar in that it's eclectic;" he told MTV News. "But this time around, the songs are pretty different. One song sounds like it could be an '80s, Depeche Mode type deal, another sounds like a mix of a Toto drum part with, like, weird arena-rock guitars. There were a lot of things I was pulling from; I listened to a lot of hip hop actually, like A$AP Rocky ... all the new stuff that's coming out was blowing my mind.

"Hip hop is doing the new rock thing; there are no rules," he continued. "They can do anything, really. And that's inspiring."

And, in a telling nod to those hip-hop influences, Too Rare also sees a shift away from the guitar-and-piano based songs Urie wrote for Vices & Virtues to new, electronic-inspired tunes, written primarily on synthesizers and keyboards.

"I wanted to get away from a lot of the stuff I did on Vices & Virtues, and try these new toys that we only kind of messed with on the last record," Urie explained. "I was using a lot more stuff in Logic, or if I had a lyric, trying to find a synth sound that would match that. A lot of it was experimenting with new synthesizers that I didn't know where they'd take the song."

He might as well have said "We're going to try to ride Fall out Boy's wave as much as we can right now."

I'm actually looking forward to the new album. Vices & Virtues took awhile but it grew on me so I have great expectations for this one.

Am I the only one that thinks that Panic! is becoming more of a solo project for Brendan, and Spencer is being pushed to the side?

This. Were probably in the minority but that record is the only thing this band has done that has had any lasting value with me.

Vices and virtues was the direction they should have stuck with. A little annoyed now after hearing the first song and this interview. He's got way too much talent with his voice and musicianship to be drowning it with these "new toys" as he did with the new song. Just my opinion tho.

I think this album is gonna be a production wet dream. Sounds like there's gonna be some awesome tones with those synths, plus the reliability of Butch Walker's sound.
