In a recent report from MTV, Panic! At The Disco have completely scrapped all their work on their 2nd album. They “didn’t really have a proper band setup”, quoted by the band. Here’s more of what they had to say:
“We went through a stage of writing that just happened because we were on tour for so long, and we were sick of those old songs so much that we decided to write songs that were really complicated and challenging for us,” guitarist Ryan Ross said. “Then we realised that it’s not going to be any fun to play these live either, so we decided to ditch the whole project. There was a story line throughout the whole record, a short story, and we decided to put that on the shelf and just start playing as a band, and it’s been a lot better.”
Fans might just be able to hear something soon, though. “We want to have the new single out by the end of the year, probably around Christmas,” drummer Spencer Smith offers. “And then have the album out in February. We hope.” This band needs all the luck in the world, I can only imagine the pressure.
