Panic! at the Disco Return With New Single "Miss Jackson" & LP Details

If Fall Out Boy's successful return didn't make it clear, well, it's now official: Pop-punk is back! And the genre's theatrical drama queens, Las Vegas' Panic! at the Disco, just unveiled their first album in nearly three yearsToo Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! drops October 8. Hear the first single "Miss Jackson" above, complete with a demented, Vegas-centric music video.

The track is a collabo with upcoming Brooklyn singer Lolo, and it features an anthemic hook that recalls FOB's "Light 'Em Up." And like that Top 15 single, "Miss Jackson" has mainstream appeal and could help return Panic! to the charts after their second and third albums, Pretty. Odd and Vices & Virtues, failed to produce a Top 40 single.

The song's video is a total Vegas freak show. It opens with frontman Brendon Urie, dressed in a Brandon Flowers-approved glittery suit at a ramshackle motel. He's surrounded by burning cigarettes and empty liquor bottles, pacing his room and absolutely losing his mind. Then he drives into the desert, where he slays a smoke-breathing, warrior goddess at the foot of a giant, neon-pink exclamation point. Heavy.

To support Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, Panic! at the Disco will embark on a solo headlining tour in August, and then support Fall Out Boy's September arena tour. See the full itinerary here.
