It’s been a couple of weeks since Panic! at the Disco announced they will be releasing their fifth studio album in January. Now, the band has returned to release the music video for another new track which be feature on the album, “Victorious.” After teasing about the new video early in the week on social media, the band went ahead and released the video on Friday morning (Nov. 13).
The music video stars frontman Brendon Urie and showcases all the times the singer has been victorious. The video starts out with Urie training in a gym for a “boxing match” which he wins and is celebrated with champagne and women in bikinis. Soon the video turns to Urie being dumped by his “ex” and celebrated for a slew of things like not calling said ex and helping a little old lady cross the street before the timer on the traffic signal changes.
The video even references Urie being horrible at sports when he gets nailed by a team of guys while playing dodge ball. When the song was first released, Urie released a letter in which he reveals he “was never really great at sports.” Don’t worry about his inability to play sports, he ended up being victorious in the end.
Check out the music video for the song below.
“Victorious” will be featured on Panic! at the Disco’s upcoming album, Death of a Bachelor. Death of a Bachelor will official hit shelves on Jan. 15, 2016 through Fueled by Ramen/DCD2.
