Hailing from Las Vegas, NV, Panic! at the Disco brings together everything you hate to love about punk pop, emo, and funk. Crawling under your skin and into your brain where it sits and plays over and over and over and over. Panic! at the Disco's debut album "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" (Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen) is the most infectious release of this young year.

Combining Fall Out Boy-esque tenor vocals and Taking Back Sunday-ish lyrical wit with the best modified jazz piano and synch hooks since the 80’s; it's a musical journey from the future to the past in style and tone.

The first half of the album is driven by drum machines and MOOGs, achieving the desired "years from now" vibe. The second side starts with a transitional intermission and then kicks things up and back with riffing string arrangements and dancing ivories. This one’s for all the boys that see grey clouds ahead and lay their heads down to dreams of fedoras and wing tips.

Panic! is currently on tour with The Academy Is…, and hellogoodbye. Later this spring they’ll be bouncing around on the Decaydance tour with Fall Out Boy, The Academy Is…, Gym Class Heroes, and the Hush Sound, and this summer they’ll be hitting up select dates on the Warped Tour.
