The pop punk band has spent the spring and summer touring the states and Europe in support of the band’s third studio album. Vices & Virtues, which was released in March on Decaydance / Fueled by Ramen, was Panic! At The Disco’s first album since lyricist/guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker left the group in 2009. The album debuted at No.2 on SoundScan’s “alternative albums” chart and No.5 on the “digital albums” chart.
Vices & Virtues’ most recent single, “Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind),” is featured on Diet Coke’s latest “Stay Extraordinary” ad campaign and on Diet Coke’s official YouTube channel. A live version of the song will be included on Panic! At The Disco’s upcoming iTunes Live EP.
A new studio track from the band, titled “Mercenary,” will be featured on the Rocksteady Studios / Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s third-person video game “Batman: Arkham City.” Fans can check out the tune on the band’s official PureVolume page and at Idolator.com.
