Love is cursed in “Nicotine,” the all new Panic! At the Disco video. The ruminative but memorable black-and-white clip finds frontman Brendon Urie anguished over a beautiful model, pacing through the snow, sulking by a hotel fireplace and serving up F-bombs aplenty.
“‘Nicotine’ is about that girl (or guy) that you know is bad for you but you just keep going back,” Urie tells Rolling Stone. “It’s that drunk text you know you shouldn’t answer. It feels good in the moment but the next day, you know, you get that shame hangover – kind of a personification of addiction.”
The third taste of the group’s 2013 studio album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! follows singles “Miss Jackson” and “This Is Gospel.” The latter lends its name to “The Gospel Tour,” the band’s upcoming summer caravan, which gets underway on July 18th in Magna, Utah.
Tickets for that trek – which will feature support from Walk the Moon on all dates with Magic Man and Youngblood Hawke splitting opening duties – go on sale today (February 28th). Panic! At the Disco’s full North American tour routing is available here.
