TAMPA, FL – Today, Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum band, Panic! At The Disco announce their seventh studio album, VIVA LAS VENGEANCE, due August 19 on Fueled by Ramen/DCD2 Records.

WATCH/SHARE “VIVA LAS VENGEANCE” HERE.
VIVA LAS VENGEANCE shows a change in process for frontman/songwriter Brendon Urie, having cut everything live to tape in Los Angeles alongside his friends and production partners, Jake Sinclair and Mike Viola. The cinematic musical journey is about the fine line between taking advantage of your youth, seizing the day and burning out. The songs take an introspective look into his relationship with his decade plus career including growing up in Las Vegas, love, and fame.
“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 realize I was making an album and there was something about the tape machine that kept me honest.” - Brendon Urie
