Just a couple of days ago, during a Twitch stream, Urie shared a metal song clip he had written and recorded. When one fan brought up how the vocalist had mentioned he wouldn’t be doing any work for the rest of the year, Urie replied:

“Dude, that’s not work. That’s literally me, stoned and drunk in my room, sitting in this chair and just being like ‘oh, let’s just grab a guitar real quick.’”

If you missed out on that clip, you can check it out below.

Now, Urie is at it again, this time sharing a full metal song he created complete with breakdowns and vocals.

It’s clear from his reaction in the video that the vocalist really enjoyed messing around with this one. He even points out how the track could use Panic! guitarist Mike Naran.

“See this is why I need Mike. This ending needs solos.”

You can watch Urie tackle the heavy metal genre below!

Urie dropped the track during his Twitch stream last night, putting a whole new spin on Positive Hardcore Thursday.

Back in December, Urie teased future plans to start a metal project. He also discussed how his future plans for the band involved incorporating various other genres as well.

At the end of last year, Urie revealed to Rock Sound how he wanted to push the envelope with Panic! by exploring other genres.

“I always feel as though I need to be more diverse,” Urie says. “Yes, all of the Panic! albums do sound different and have their own vibe, their own aesthetic and imagery, but I still feel like I can do more.”

At the time, he also shared how he had given an old Panic! song a metal twist.

“I want to do a metal project in particular,” Urie said. “I actually just played something for my bandmates recently — We have an old song called ‘The Calendar’ and I made a metal version of it from years back. It’s like 90 seconds long and is really fun. Who knows, I might even put that out on SoundCloud on a whim sometime soon!”

Do you think we’ll be seeing heavier tracks from Panic! in the future? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
