Hallelujah for Panic! At The Disco’s new album, “Death Of A Bachelor”

By Nadine Rodriguez/Staff Writer


It’s rare to find a band with such an interesting, perturbed history as Panic! At The Disco. Starting off as a four man band in 2005, back when their first album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out was released, Panic! now consists of a single, victorious Brendon Urie. However, it seems that Urie knows exactly what he’s doing and where Panic!’s music is heading to. With nearly the entire album composed, written, and recorded by the multi-instrumentalist Urie, except for a few external writers used for certain songs, Urie has definitely stepped up to the plate to present a new body of work.

And Death Of A Bachelor is definitely one extravagant, talented body of work to be proud of. Singles from the album have been released prior to its release, such as “Hallelujah,” “Death of a Bachelor,” “Victorious,” “Emperor’s New Clothes,” and “LA Devotee.” Some of the singles were accompanied by a music video, such as “Victorious,” “Emperor’s New Clothes,” and “Death of a Bachelor.” Each video has views in the millions, with “Emperor’s New Clothes” having earned an impressive 22 million views.

The album itself consists of 11 songs, each unlike the other in marvelous ways. A song like “Crazy=Genius” resembles a jazz ensemble while “Golden Days” serves as the back drop for a starry-eyed, romanticized summer night.

But without a doubt the best part of Death Of A Bachelor is Urie channeling his role-model, Frank Sinatra, for over the top, incredible vocals in songs “Death of a Bachelor” and the final track, “Impossible Year.”

With such emotionally driven vocals and a piano melody serving as the backdrop in each song, its impossible not to have goosebumps break out while listening.

Being one of the first few albums released in 2016, Death Of A Bachelor has definitely set high expectations for any other album coming out this year. Well deserving of its 4/5 star reviews from multiple music magazines, such as Alternative Press and Clash, it is definitely an accolade Urie should be proud of.

You can catch Panic! At The Disco on tour this summer on their co-headlining tour with Weezer. The tour will be stopping by Florida on June 14 at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater, and June 15 at the Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheater in Tampa.
