Music Feeds Podcast Episode #72 – Panic! At The Disco

Written by Greg Moskovitch on February 16, 2014

It can be said that no band slated for the imminent Soundwave Festival 2014 has a following quite as rabid as pop-punk baroquians Panic! At The Disco and with SW14 edging so close, we decided to catch up with frontman Brendon Urie for the latest instalment of Music Feeds Podcast.

We got down to business quickly, asking Brendon about PATD’s latest, electronica-inspired record, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!. “I don’t think I really had a vision for the album until about three or four songs in and then I realised I had a vision to make a party record,” Brendon told us.

“I had been talking a lot about my past, about growing up in Vegas, I wanted to keep running with that because I was in a really good place. I was feeling really healthy and really positive about stuff and I think it was due to the honesty of the confessions I was putting into song form,” he added.

Brendon also explained to us why his music doesn’t exist in a vacuum, saying, “I can’t lie, when I write music I’m excited to show people so it’s not like I’m just writing for myself at all. I like writing something that’s true to me, but I also love sharing it with as many people as I can, especially fans.”
