After spending the last couple of days teasing fans with short clips and cryptic messages on social media, Panic! at the Disco has finally unveiled what it all meant. On Thursday (Sept. 22), the Las Vegas-founded band unveiled the music video for their latest single, “L.A. Devotee.” The clip begins with a girl wandering a corn field by herself. Suddenly, it appears that someone knocks her out as the camera zooms in on her hand. As the camera zooms out, we see a person, dressed in a bright red clock pick up the girl and walk into the corn field. As the camera zooms out, the viewer sees Panic! at the Disco’s current logo in the corn field like a crop circle.

The clip goes black momentarily and then the viewers find themselves inside of a dark room with random items displayed around. Instead of the girl, we now see a boy (Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things fame) being strapped into an electric chair. As the song plays, Schnapp is forced to watch random clips edited together as he is being record by an old-school camera. At the end of it all, it looks like frontman Brendon Urie has officially admitted, after all these music videos, that he’s Satan. Watch the music video for “L.A. Devotee” below.

In addition to releasing the music video for their new single, Panic! at the Disco has also announced a massive arena tour for 2017. The “Death of a Bachelor” tour is set to kick off on Feb. 24, 2017 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT and wrap up almost two months later on April 15, 2017 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. Saint Motel and MisterWives will open for Panic! at the Disco during the excursion.

*Panic! at the Disco and MisterWives ONLY

The “Death of a Bachelor” tour is in support of Panic! at the Disco’s recently released record, Death of a Bachelor. This summer, the group, alongside Weezer and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, invaded the North American tour circuit for their massive summer. Check out our recap/review from the Miami stop here.

Panic! at the Disco Pay Homage to the “L.A. Devotee”

While some people are still sleeping off all the turkey and fixings they inhaled during Thanksgiving last night, Panic! at the Disco have gone back to work, debuting another new song off of their impending record. On Friday morning (Nov. 27), the Las Vegas-based band debuted the a fourth track from Death of a Bachelor. The new track is titled “L.A. Devotee” and the video for the track features images from Los Angeles like palm trees, the always congested freeways, and even the famed Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

Stream “L.A. Devotee” below.

Since the song was just released, there’s no word on whether  “L.A. Devotee” will be the band’s official fourth single off of Death of a Bachelor. Pre-orders for the new album are currently ongoing on all digital media platforms as well as on the band’s webstore. For those who pre-order the record on iTunes, they will receive instant downloads of all three previous tracks, “Hallelujah,” “Emperor’s New Clothes,” and “Victorious” as well as “L.A. Devotee.”

Death of a Bachelor is schedule to be released on Jan. 15, 2016 through DCD2. Death of a Bachelor is the follow-up to 2013’s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die.
