Panic! At The Disco has just released several exciting things in regards to their newest album Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die.
The album artwork, album listing, pre-order on iTunes, newest single “This Is Gospel” and music video has been unveiled to the world. As a lifelong Panic fan this has made me insanely excited.
The video for “This Is Gospel” is strange and awesome. It follows the trend of most Panic videos in that regard.
It follows Brendon Urie being prodded by medical professionals, put in a casket, break out of the casket while its underwater, tried to be lassoed in ropes and ultimately die(?). I’m sure there’s a metaphor in there somewhere. The visuals are fun though.
Along with “This Is Gospel”, the other available single “Miss Jackson” shows yet another exciting reinvention for the band. There are more synthesizers and a bit more abstraction to the lyrics. The beats of the songs are still a lot of fun. Brendon Urie’s voice continues to astound with its emotional depth.
It only serves, to me at least, as a hype up to the album.
