PANIC! AT THE DISCO – PRAY FOR THE WICKED
It’s time to re-assess this American band’s sixth album, released earlier this year, but before married lead singer Brendon
Urie announced he is now “pansexual”.
It’s probably no surprise PATD made this album after Brendon finished starring on
Broadway in Kinky Boots. He calls this, “the most fun I’ve ever had making music”. Say
Amen (Saturday Night) and High Hopes are good examples of Panic!’s Wicked ways: big, shouty choruses they adore at your local pub late on the weekend with plenty of air guitar. The lyrics are decidedly circumspect (“It’s a little bit complicated!”) and while it’s not exactly a coming-out album, we can’t wait to hear how the next Panic! album “pans” out.
