Despite only releasing their sixth studio album ‘Pray For The Wicked’ less than a year ago, Brendon Urie has already confirmed that he’s began writing and piecing together material and ideas towards some kind of follow-up.
Urie confirmed the news during an interview with Billboard, which was taken backstage at their music awards after Panic! At The Disco won and picked up the awards for Top Rock Album for ‘Pray For The Wicked’ and Top Rock Song for ‘High Hopes’.
You can read an excerpt from the interview where Urie discusses their current activity and progress on new material below.
“I am home now and we are taking some time off, and I’m chilling, and I’m streaming and I’m hanging out with my fans online, and it’s amazing. But I- I thought I would take a little more time off, and I’m already starting music. Not with anything planned in mind, but just working on some ideas. I can’t help myself, so, I don’t think it’ll be too long before another Panic! record.
Some are 2-minute long just instrumentals, some are 30 second voice memos, gibberish, some are inside jokes written on napkins at bars. There’s all kinds of different stuff.”
Though progress certainly seems to be in the very early stages, Urie is known for being able to whip up new material fairly quickly, so it can be assumed that there’ll be a new released from Panic! At The Disco at some point next year at the latest.

Panic! At The Disco‘s sixth full-length album, ‘Pray For The Wicked’, is out now via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2.
