If it ain't baroque, don't fix it.

When it comes to theatrical emo, no one does it better than Las Vegas' Panic! At The Disco. It's hard to believe it's been 12 years since we were piling on layers of eyeliner and screaming along to "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" (and totally getting the lyrics wrong.)

Following cryptic social media posts and a surprise performance at Ohio's beloved (and very intimate) The Grog Shop earlier this week, Panic! at the Disco announced the release of their sixth studio record, Pray for the Wicked (June 22) and a summer tour. The 28-date tour kicks off in Minneapolis and wraps in Las Vegas in August and includes a stop at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday, July 14.

“After being away in New York for months doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to LA. I was so revved up that I asked some friends to come over to my home studio to help me write about all the incredible things I’ve experienced the last couple of years,” frontman Brendon Urie said in a statement.

"Pray For The Wicked is my 'thank you' to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making album.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 30 at noon via the band's official website here.
