- READ MORE: Brendon Urie plays Show & Tell with NME
The Brendon Urie-fronted band released their latest album ‘Pray For The Wicked’ last month. Reviewing the record, NME concluded: “Urie is clearly still relishing the role of the sonic bachelor, and it shows. On ‘Pray…’, it sounds like he’s having a total blast.”
In support of their latest studio effort, the guys stopped off at the SiriusXM studios to deliver a stripped-back performance. As well as airing new tracks ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’ and ‘High Hopes’, the Las Vegas group offered their take on Weezer’s 1994 classic.
Swapping that ’90s alternative distortion for acoustic guitar, Urie’s distinct vocals carry the band’s interpretation.
Meanwhile, Panic!’s Brendon Urie recently came out as pansexual. “I wrote this song “Girls, Girls, Boys” about my first threesome when I was 15 or 16,” he told Papermag. “That song was about my first threesome but [fans] made it about coming out and accepting who you are as a person which I thought, what a way better message.
“Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea.”
Last month, the musician also launched his own human rights organisation. Named Highest Hopes Foundation, it will aim to support “communities subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.”
