After a week of cryptic clues to their fans that set the internet a buzz, Grammy-nominated Panic! At The Disco has announced that their highly anticipated sixth studio album, Pray For The Wicked, will be released on June 22, 2018 via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records. The album, produced by Jake Sinclair, is available for pre-order now.
"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," said Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco frontman. "Pray For The Wicked is my 'thank you' to our fans and the most fun I've ever had making album."
Panic! At The Disco also unleashed an accompanying music video for "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" directed by longtime collaborator Daniel "Cloud" Campos and Spencer Susser. The video is part of a trilogy that acts as the prequel to "This Is Gospel" and "Emperor's New Clothes, also directed by Cloud.

A R I Z O N A and Hayley Kiyoko be support for the 28 city tour.
