Between the cryptic items that were being sent to fans and the non-stop teasers on social media, it was only a matter of time before Panic! at the Disco unveiled what it was all for. On Wednesday (March 21), the Las Vegas-founded band went full steam ahead unveiling a slew of good news for their legion of fans. Following weeks of teasing and speculation, the group formally confirmed the release of their sixth studio album, Pray for the Wicked.
Pray for the Wicked is set to be released on June 22 through Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for the new album are available here. Pray for the Wicked is the follow-up to Panic! at the Disco’s 2016 release, Death of a Bachelor.
In addition to officially announcing the new record, the band also unleashed its lead single, a track titled “Say Amen (Saturday Night).” Watch the song’s five-minute music video above which features frontman Brendon Urie kicking some ninja butts as he wears the Devil’s key around his neck.
As if the confirmation of a new album and a taste of what to expect wasn’t enough, Panic! at the Disco also announced a massive summer tour in support of the upcoming release. The Pray for the Wicked tour will kick off on July 11 at the Target Center in Minneapolis and conclude a little over a month later on Aug. 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in the group’s hometown of Las Vegas.
Hitting the road alongside Panic! for the full excursion will be A R I Z O N A and Hayley Kiyoko.
For fans who would like to gain access to tour tickets before the general public, they can either pre-order the album ahead of time or sign up for Panic! at the Disco’s mailing list here. General ticket sales will begin next Friday, March 30, at noon local time.
