Episode 003: Brendon Urie (Panic! at the Disco)
On Episode 003 of the Voice & Verse Podcast, my guest is Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco. Panic!’s new album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!, hit stores last November and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, matching their best chart position ever. You can pick it up on iTunes here, and read more about the making of the album in Alternative Press issue 304 (written by yours truly).
I caught up with Brendon backstage at Rams Head Live in Baltimore to talk about writing a song with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, his Dr. Dre mentality when it comes to composing music, and how an unlikely love inspired the first song he ever wrote.
