Panic! at the Disco have dropped the epic clip for new single “Vicorious.” Death of a Bachelor, the band’s fifth album and first with Brendon Urie as its sole member, will be released on January 15th via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records.
Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo helped write the dynamic rock song with Urie, and the video is just as massive as the track. The clip opens with Urie in a boxing ring preparing for and subsequently winning a match. The video cuts to a less celebratory Urie in his home after his girlfriend has broken up with him. When he fights the urge to call his ex, he’s presented with a large, $1 million check.
Fantastical victories, like a key to the city, reward his positive, post-break-up behavior. The clip ends with Urie back in the winning boxing ring after meeting and successfully falling in love with someone new.
In April, founding member and drummer Spencer Smith left Panic! at the Disco following a two-year hiatus to recover from drug and alcohol abuse. Smith and Urie had released two albums as a duo following the departure of other founding members Ryan Ross and Jon Walker, including 2013’s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!
