Following their first Number One album, Panic! At the Disco gave a triumphant performance Monday night of their single “Victorious” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band released Death of a Bachelor, their fifth LP and first with singer Brendon Urie as the sole official member, on January 15th.
Urie looked dapper and frenetic as he jumped around the outdoor stage during the performance. The electropop single is a unique, standout track on an album inspired by Frank Sinatra and was co-written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, making for their second collaboration in six years (and first to be officially released). Panic! At the Disco and Weezer will embark on a co-headlining tour this summer with special guest Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
Panic! At the Disco began as a quartet before members Ryan Ross and Jon Walker left following the band’s sophomore LP, Pretty. Odd. Drummer Spencer Smith and Urie were the sole official members until Smith entered a rehab facility to deal with substance abuse issues before departing the band last year.
