Panic! At the Disco have returned with a new song, ‘Viva Las Vengeance,’ the title-track from their upcoming seventh studio album, out Aug. 19 via Fueled b Ramen/DCD2 Records.

“Viva Las Vengeance” — which arrives with a music video directed by Brendan Walter — is a stomping blast of power-pop with frontman Brendon Urie bellowing against a background of lush, Queen-esque harmonies. “I don’t want to be anonymous, but I don’t want to be you,” he quips, “In a city full of promises, nothing rings true/Shut-up and go to bed, she said/Viva las vengeance!”

Viva Las Vengeance marks Panic! At the Disco’s first album in four years, following 2018’s Pray for the Wicked. Urie recorded the LP in Los Angeles, cutting the entire album live to tape and working with his friends/production partners, Jake Sinclaire and Mike Viola. 

In a statement, Urie said, “Viva Las Vengeance is a look back at who I was 17 years ago and who I am now with the fondness I didn’t have before. I didn’t realise I was making an album and there was something about the tape machine that kept me honest.”

Panic! At the Disco has also announced a world tour in support of Viva Las Vengeance. The North American legs will kick off Sept. 8 at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, and wrap on Oct. 25 at the Chase Center in San Francisco (a run of European shows will follow in early 2023). During the tour, Panic! At the Disco will receive support from Marina, Jake Wesley Rogers, Beach Bunny, and Little Image on select dates. 

Tickets for the North American dates will go on sale on June 8 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets will also be available through various pre-sales. Full information is available on Panic! At the Disco’s website.
