If you know the song “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” then you’re at least vaguely familiar with Panic! At the Disco. If you haven’t been following them diligently, however, you might’ve missed their eclectic sound development that includes influences ranging from 80s pop to modern Hip Hop.
Panic! At the Disco released their new album “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die” this past month. The band has come a long way since their first album’s release in 2005, straying from their original sound on “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out”. Despite the loss of two members from the band, the remaining lead singer and drummer stuck together and rebuilt their vision. The addition of two members and their new experimental style makes them seem like an entirely different set of artists.
If you’re falling off your seat from excitement at the revival of talent in Panic! At the Disco, don’t stop reading just yet. The group is currently on tour, performing at Chicago’s Aragon Theatre Tuesday, Dec. 10 in Q87.7’s ‘Twas The Night Before. Tickets are now on sale but be mindful to check your schedules for final exams before making any decisions (just in case).
Let’s take a bit to revisit Panic! At the Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and compare it to their recently released “Miss Jackson” featuring LOLO. Leave a comment below to let me know what you think!
