Panic! At The Disco may be about to get br00tal.
Frontman Brendon Urie has expressed a desire to go in a more metal direction on the band’s next album.
“I always feel as though I need to be more diverse,” he tells Rock Sound. “Yes, all of the Panic! albums do sound different and have their own vibe, their own aesthetic and imagery, but I still feel like I can do more.
“Even from song to song within one album I feel like things could change even more drastically, and maybe that’ll happen as time goes on. I still have so many different things that I want to do, particularly in terms of genres.”
The vocal dynamo goes on to tease that he “wants to do a metal project in particular”.
“I actually just played something for my band mates recently,” he continues. “We have an old song called ‘The Calendar’ and I made a metal version of it from years back. It’s like 90 seconds long and is really fun. Who knows, I might even put that out on SoundCloud on a whim some time soon!”
Listen to ‘The Calendar’ below, and try to imagine it… metal?
