Panic! At The Disco Frontman Wants To Do 'Metal Project' Next

Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie wants to swerve sharply away from the band's pop, emo and alt-rock sound and get into something heavier. In an interview with Rock Sound magazine, Urie stated, "I want to do a metal project in particular. I actually just played something for my bandmates recently . . . 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." Urie said he is happy with the way Panic! changes its sound from LP to LP, explaining, "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." Panic! At The Disco's sixth studio album, Pray For The Wicked, was released in June and debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart, marking the band's second consecutive chart-topping debut. The latest single, "High Hopes," has topped the Alternative radio airplay survey. The band will continue to promote the record next month with a North American tour that kicks off on January 10th at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York, wrapping up on February 20th in Sacramento, California, at the Golden1 Center.
