Demos of what should have been the band's second LP have been found
Panic! At The Disco‘s former bassist has said that he’s unearthed unreleased music from the band’s early days.
The Brendon Urie-fronted group released their latest studio album, ‘Pray For The Wicked’, in June. In a four-star review, NME said: “Urie brings buckets of sass and drama to his theatrical, glamorous sixth album under the guise of Panic!”
Now, the band’s ex-bassist Jon Walker has claimed to have discovered what should have been PATD’s second record.
“My dad just found a CD with 3 Cricket & Clover demos if anyone was wondering,” the musician tweeted, before tagging his former bandmates in the post.
In a follow-up tweet, Walker described the lost album’s material as “weird and dense and beautiful and pre-weed”.
Hinting that fans may get to hear the tracks in the future, Walker added: “I hope someone gets the ok to post them.”
The following day, Walker said that his father-in-law had also found “11 more post-cabin, pre-pretty odd demos, and 3 pretty odd demos (nine, things have changed, do you know).”
‘Cricket And Clover’ was meant to follow the band’s debut LP ‘A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out’. It was scrapped as the sound of Panic! changed direction – resulting in the release of ‘Pretty. Odd.’. The album saw the group move away from their pop-punk sound to explore psychedelic rock influences.
Meanwhile, Panic! At The Disco recently confirmed the departure of touring guitarist Kenny Harris, after he faced sexual misconduct allegations.
