The Gospel Tour, featuring headliner Panic! At The Disco and OurStage members Walk The Moon, has seen the universally reviled Westboro Baptist “Church” appearing at recent shows to protest the bands’ insufficient level of hatred for other human beings or something. Both bands are turning that frown upside-down by donating to human rights charities. PATD pledged to donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for each WBC
brainwashed dipshit protestor, but when only 13 showed up, the band bumped it up to $1,000, plus a portion of their merchandise sales. For their part, Walk The Moon has pledged the profits from their night’s merch sales to the youth group Everyone Is Gay.
So…keep it up, WBC.

There are some situations you expect to run into when going to a concert. Crowd surfing, for instance, becomes a very real possibility. Drunk people slamming into you all night is an obvious obstacle. But a cracked floor causing an evacuation? No way. Unfortunately, for Panic! At The Disco fans this past Saturday night, that’s exactly what happened. Only two songs into their set at the Tabernacle, the show quickly came to a halt as promoters asked everyone to evacuate quickly, due to the floor cracking. Thankfully, no one was injured, and the venue made a statement shortly after via Facebook that, “The Tabernacle is a historical 100 year old building. We will be meeting with a structural engineer ASAP to make sure the building is safe for another 100 years.”
The band is currently working to reschedule the show. In the meantime, catch them on the rest of their Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die tour.
While you were busy ringing in the new year with friends and loved ones Tuesday night, Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco were also rocking”I mean ringing it in. Live from Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Fall Out Boy performed fan favorites “Alone Together,” “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark,” and “Young Volcanoes.” Meanwhile, on Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live, Panic! At The Disco could be found performing “This Is Gospel” and “Miss Jackson.” You can view all performances below, and let us know what you think.
2013 was a pretty good year for twenty | one | pilots. Fueled By Ramen released the band’s third album, Vessel, at the beginning of the year, they opened for Fall Out Boy on a massive autumn tour that also included Panic! At The Disco, and they were nominated as an ‘Artist To Watch’ by the MTV VMAs for “Holding On To You.” So it’s only fitting that the band would end the year with a bang by releasing their new music video for “Truce.” Check out the video below, and catch them on tour in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe all through January and February, with US spring dates to be announced soon.

Arriving online early Monday morning without the slightest of teasers, a full stream of Panic! At The Disco’s upcoming album has been made available through the band’s official YouTube channel. Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! is the fourth studio album from the pop-rock outfit, and it boasts 10 brand new tracks for fans to memorize before the band’s next tour. Click here to stream the album.
We were fortunate enough to catch Panic! At The Disco’s set on Fall Out Boy‘s current US tour and cannot say enough good things about their evolution as performers. The boys who once seemed frightened to be on stage have grown into confident entertainers. Frontman Brendon Urie has never sounded as good as he does in 2013, and if Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! is as good as the singles lead us to believe, we’ll no doubt be seeing plenty of PATD in the years to come.

With images that match lines about searching for someone who loves you enough to let you go, the video for “This Is Gospel” finds PATD vocalist Brendon Urie in a series of claustrophobic scenarios. Every situation finds him held against his will, and each time he fights his way free. It’s a beautifully shot and highly entertaining accompaniment for a song that stands well on its own. You can view the video below.

The name alone should tell you Set It Off’s M.O. The Tampa-based band is all about starting a frenzy through adrenaline-soaked, emotive rockers. Led by singer Cody Carson, Set It Off blends theater, social sensitivity and angst a la bands like My Chemical Romance and Panic At The Disco. On Horrible Kids Carson, guitarists Dan Clermont and Zach DeWall, bassist Austin Kerr and drummer Maxx Danziger delve into bullying with equal parts empathy and rage. It’s jittery and paranoid, but ultimately a redemptive tune. But on Breathe In, Breathe Out, the mood takes a turn towards a manic carnival. Jabbing guitars, coursing verse and a soaring chorus create a totally irresistible, totally schizoid rocker. Set It Off are masters of mood swings. On Pages and Paragraphs Carson sings, I’m on cloud nine. Even if happiness is fleeting there’s still pleasure to be found in pain. Enjoy the ride.
