In addition to the new album, Panic! released a stunning new video for “Emperor’s New Clothes” directed by award-winning filmmaker/choreographer Daniel “Cloud” Campos

The clip continues upon 2013’s Cloud-directed “This Is Gospel” video, which has earned close to 40 million views. Panic! At The Disco will introduce fans to DEATH OF A BACHELOR with appearances at a number of radio festivals around the holidays and intimate shows in early January 2016 – London’s Brixton Academy on Jan. 12, New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge on Jan. 14, and Los Angeles’ historic Tower Theatre on Jan. 19.

Produced by Jake Sinclair (Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy), DEATH OF A BACHELOR marks the first release from Panic! At The Disco in nearly two years, following 2013’s acclaimed TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE!. The album has already generated significant steam – current single “Victorious” rocketed to #1 on iTunes Top Songs chart, # 1 on Billboard + Twitter’s Trending 140 chart, while also trending worldwide on Tumblr and Twitter. The track is currently soundtracking postseason baseball coverage on the MLB Network and will also be featured in the trailer for 2K Sports’ hugely anticipated “WWE 2K16” video game, set to debut Sunday, Oct. 25 during WWE Network’s Hell In A Cell event and then air across all WWE programming including USA Network’s WWE Raw and Syfy’s WWE Smackdown.

The first single off DOAB, “Hallelujah,” made chart history for the band with a Top 40 debut on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – Panic! At The Disco’s second Top 40 hit and first since 2006’s breakthrough classic, “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.” The album’s title track premiered exclusively on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio where Urie described “Death of A Bachelor” as, “It’s like some Beyoncé beats with some Sinatra vocals. It’s really crazy… [Sinatra’s] music has been a major player in the soundtrack of my life. So it’s only right that I return the favour and/or pay it forward.”

DEATH OF A BACHELOR is the follow up album to TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE! which made a top 2 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its 2013 release. The album was fuelled by the RIAA gold certified single, “Miss Jackson (Feat. Lolo),” and quickly proved a top 10 favourite at Modern Rock radio outlets nationwide. In addition, the song’s companion video – featuring actress Katrina Bowden (30 Rock) – scored major rotation at MTV2, mtvU, FUSE, and Logo’s “NewNowNext,” while earning close to 25 million views.

Released in 2005, Panic! At The Disco’s double platinum-certified debut, A FEVER YOU CAN’T SWEAT OUT remains one of the biggest selling debuts in Fueled By Ramen history. Singles like the 2x-platinum smash, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” earned the band international acclamation and a fervent fan following around the globe, also receiving a number of major honours including multiple Grammy® nominations and the prestigious MTV Video Music Awards “Video of the Year” prize for the “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” video.

Panic! At The Disco’s acclaimed second album, PRETTY. ODD. arrived in 2008, debuting at #2 on SoundScan/Billboard 200 album chart upon its initial release. The album’s popular success was matched by a wave of critical applause, with NME declaring it “a victory for artistic ambition over cynical careerism, one of the feel-good psych-pop albums of the year.” They returned three years later with VICES & VIRTUES. The album – which features, “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” and “Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)” – made a spectacular chart entry upon its March 2011 release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #7, while also coming in at #2 on SoundScan’s “Alternative Albums” chart.

Furthermore, Panic! At The Disco has made high profile TV appearances, including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, TBS’ Conan, CBS’ The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live, NBC’s Miss Universe 2013, and CBS’ broadcast of The 36th Annual Kennedy Center Honours, in which Urie paid tribute to honoree Billy Joel with a characteristically idiosyncratic take on the classic “Big Shot.”

Lianne La Havas Receives First Ever Grammy Nomination For ‘Blood’

Lianne La Havas Receives First Ever Grammy Nomination For ‘Blood’
Nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album alongside The Weeknd and Miguel

llh2

“Blood is dynamic and poignantly self-assured in its introspection… an almost seamless album.” – Pitchfork

“Lianne La Havas, superstar in waiting, is about to be in real demand.” – Evening Standard

“Lianne La Havas sounds like she’s at the top of her game.” – Q

“A game-changing album.” – Sunday Times Culture

“There are moments on Blood that recall the artistry and ambition of Lauryn Hill.” – The Guardian

“Blood is a bold, multi-hued masterpiece.” – Daily Mirror

“One of the most stunning voices of her generation.” – The Sun

Lianne La Havas has achieved an exciting career accomplishment with the news that she has been nominated for a Grammy Award for her current critically acclaimed album ‘Blood’.

‘Blood’ is in contention for Best Urban Contemporary Album alongside The Weeknd, Miguel, The Internet and Kehlani. The winner will be announced at the 58th Grammy Awards ceremony which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angles on February 15th.

The Grammy nomination adds another major addition to Lianne’s list of achievements with ‘Blood’. Released to a flurry of her best reviews to date with many critics drawing comparisons with the likes of Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Joni Mitchell, ‘Blood’ went straight into the charts at #2 – two places higher than the peak position of her popular debut album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’.

She was also subsequently nominated for three MOBO Awards for Best Album for ‘Blood’, Best Female Act and Best R&B / Soul Act.

Lianne is currently embarking upon her biggest tour to date which concludes next Monday with her biggest headline show to date at the Brixton O2 Academy. After the show sold-out months in advance, Lianne also added a prestigious Albert Sessions show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 14th. Earlier this summer, Lianne played triumphant sets at festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Gentlemen of the Road, Latitude and Secret Garden Party.

‘Blood’ also received similarly glowing reviews across the board in the States. “What comes across first is the sheer grace of her voice. It can be a breathy purr, a lilting tease, a liquid confession or a torchy declaration,” commented the New York Times, while the New Yorker described Lianne as a “polished guitarist and inventive songwriter.” Even President Barack Obama proved to be a fan when he featured Lianne in his summer Spotify playlist.

Lianne’s show-stopping performances could captivate huge audiences – such as on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – and intimate sessions alike, as with her Tiny Desk Concert for NPR. She played her largest North American show to date in front of 2500 people at New York City’s Terminal 5. Billboard’s review concluded that the show was “a treat for true La Havas fans and newcomers alike, a spectacle with incomparable energy.” Lianne is already set to return to the States in February for a series of intimate solo club performances.

The ‘Blood’ album campaign will receive a fresh boost in 2016 when an extended Deluxe Edition is released. Titled ‘Blood – Solo’, the Deluxe Edition will feature stripped-back acoustic versions of the original album’s material which highlights the emotional power of Lianne’s engaging narrative lyrics.

Lianne’s current UK tour dates are scheduled as below:

December 2015

7th – Cambridge, Corn Exchange
8th – Bristol, O2 Academy
9th – Glasgow, O2 ABC
11th – Manchester, Albert Hall (SOLD OUT)
12th – Leeds, O2 Academy
14th – London, Brixton O2 Academy (SOLD OUT)

March 2016

14th – London, Albert Sessions at the Royal Albert Hall (ADDED DATE)

Lianne La Havas made a huge breakthrough with her Top 5 debut album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ which sold 200,000 copies and won Album of the Year at iTunes as well as Barclaycard Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Best Album nominations.
