Is Brendon Urie Making a Musical?
After a few comments to The Sun last week, Panic! At The Disco fans are chomping at the bit for more information about a possible movie or musical from frontman, Brendon Urie.
“I’ve been talking to a couple of movie directors about film music ideas and about doing musical theatre, Broadway maybe,” Urie said. “I talked about doing my origin story, growing up in Vegas, so we will see what happens.”
Urie starred on Broadway in 2016 as Charlie Price in Kinky Boots. Fans (myself included) have been waiting to see if he’ll return to the Great White Way someday.
iDKHOW premieres video for Choke
I Don’t Know How But They Found Me is still one of rock music’s most interesting artists. They present all videos and content as found footage and embrace this concept through old-style music videos with plenty of nods to the new wave culture from the 70s and 80s.
Their first track Choke debuted in late 2017 but appeared on the band’s 2018 EP, 1981 Extended Play. It now has an amazing music video to back it up.
The video is presented as a performance from an old broadcast concert show called Pop Time Live. The full video can be found below ↓
