Panic! at the Disco Teases and Tickles Us With Track Names
March lurches ever closer, tempting us with a list of anticipated releases. And the artists releasing albums ALSO tempt, tease and tickle us with news and information about albums we won’t hear for over a month.
Seriously, screw those guys. SCREW THEM SO HARD.To be honest, the “tickles” in the title of this blog was an excuse to use this photo. DO YOU BLAME ME?
Anyway, the point here is that Panic! at the Disco have provided us with a few track names from their upcoming album Vices and Virtues. While talking to Kerrang they confirmed five song titles:
- Ready To Go
- Kill Tonight
- Nearly Witches
- The Ballad Of Mona Lisa
Now, we’ve already heard a little of “The Ballad of Mona Lisa,” which will be released in full on February 1st, but did you know we may have also already heard a little of another of these songs? REALLY!
See, back in 2008, Fall Out Boy and a bunch of other Decaydance bands released a mixtape called the Citizens For Our Betterment mixtape (CFOB). It was mixed and hosted by Clinton Sparks and contained music by The Cab, Cobra Starship, The Hush Sound, Hey Monday, Tyga and more. It also contained a version of Northern Downpour by Panic (who at the time had shunned their exclamation point).
HOWEVER, it also included a track by “The Paul Revere Jumpsuit Apparatus” entitled “Nearly Witches.” Now, listening to the track it was pretty damn obvious that Brendon Urie of Panic was the vocalist, but no one was really sure if this song was something from the rumored scrapped Panic! at the Disco album (supposedly a werewolf themed concept album) or a side project or something else ENTIRELY.
We don’t yet have confirmation of whether this is the same song or if the guys just liked the title enough to reuse it. But I’m willing to bet it’s in at least some ways the same song.
What do you think of the song titles and the samples? Ready for some new Panic in your life? Also: how awesome is that new logo they’re rocking?
