It will be a busy next few months for Panic! at the Disco, with two months of touring leading up to the release of their fourth studio album in October. On July 15, Panic! revealed the 10/8 release date for Too Weird to Live, Too Rare To Die!, released the first single, and announced 36 upcoming U.S. tour dates.

While the Las Vegas natives’ new music will be an ode to their Sin City roots, expect a different sound from the bands’ three previous albums. Too Weird to Live will boast a more electronic-inspired sound, a departure from the piano and guitar based music of their last album. Lead singer Brandon Urie also drew inspiration from hip-hop musicians such as A$AP Rocky.
The first single is titled “Ms .Jackson” and is actually a reference to Janet Jackson’s 1986 hit “Nasty”. Panic! fans are clearly excited to see the new music live, with the majority of the August headlining shows selling out in less than a day. Check out the video for “Ms. Jackson” and read more about the upcoming tour dates after the jump.
Panic! at the Disco plays a total of 16 headlining shows in August, beginning 8/1 in Boston and concluding in Salt Lake City on 8/24. Two weeks later on 8/5, the band will hit the road again with former Fueled by Ramen labelmate Fall Out Boy on their Save Rock and Roll Arena Tour. The two groups first joined forces all the way back in 2005, on the Nintendo Fusion Tour, Fall Out Boy’s very first headlining tour.
Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz says that the arena tour is “really been about creating a great rock show”. The average price for Save Rock and Roll is currently $118. The most expensive date is at the Palace at Auburn Hills, Michigan on 9/14, averaging $237. With an average price of just $71, the 9/6 show in Lowell, Massachusetts is the least expensive.
