Panic! At The Disco released their fifth album ‘Death Of A Bachelor’ in January and recently concluded a UK tour.
Panic! frontman Brendon Urie has also opened up about his battles with anxiety, describing it as “so painful I can’t even describe”‘.
He revealed that he gets nervous when approaching people in public. “If I saw someone that I admired, I would love to have that interaction,” Urie told Kerrang!. “I never do, though, cause I’m an anxious fucker; but it’s really great to have that option.”
Elaborating on his anxiety, he continued: “If I’m in an elevator and too many people get on, I’m like ‘Holy shit, get me the fuck out of here!
“You would never tell on the surface but inside it’s so painful I can’t even describe… I start thinking of ways tot take myself out! I can go to festivals and open spaces, but if I’m in a crammed room with a bunch of people, oh my god…”
Adding that he’ll ‘flip out’ if he’s in the supermarket for more than 15 minutes, Urie continued: “It’s not even that there’s (too many) people there, I just get anxiety problems being in certain scenarios. Its probably ’cause I got lost at grocery stores as a kid- I just wandered off a lot, and I think that just traumatised me, so I don’t like going to the grocery store for too long!”
