Panic! at the Disco‘s Brendon Urie can walk up the side of skyscrapers in the band’s new video for “High Hopes.”
The video for the upbeat, alt-rock track that hears the frontman belting catchy hooks in full stadium mode is modelled off the cover of the group’s new album Pray for the Wicked. The record was released this past June and its cover art depicts Urie atop a building over looking the city. Check out the new video below.
This sky-scraping video follows the band’s similar gravity-defying performance at the 2018 MTV VMAs, where Urie delivered the “High Hopes” opening verse as he hovered over the Radio City Music Hall crowd.
“High Hopes” is the third single off of the Nevada-bred band’s sixth studio album and follows 2016’s Death of a Bachelor, which debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., and earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. The track opens with a blaring brass section and sharp vocals joined by classical strings for an uplifting chorus with the lyrics, “Had to have high high hopes for a living / Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling / I was gonna be that one in a million / Always had high high hopes.” While the song’s lyrics are meant to be inspirational, the music video takes the song’s title literally going high high up on the rooftop of a very tall building.
In a press release, the band said of the new visual, “No matter how hard your dreams seem, keep going. You might even have to climb up the side of a building in downtown L.A., but it’ll all be worth it at the top. Stay up on that rise.”
Currently, Panic! At the Disco is on a North American Tour in support of Pray For The Wicked, which included two Canadian stops in Toronto and Vancouver earlier this summer. Last week, the band announced the addition of a European leg to the tour slated for spring 2019. Find all the tour dates here.
