Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie Shares Metal Version Of “The Calendar”

During a recent live stream on Twitch, Brendon Urie shared a metal version of Panic! At The Disco’s “The Calendar.” You can check that out below. Urie also talked about the possibility of starting a metal project during an interview with Rock Sound:

“I always feel as though I need to be more diverse. 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. Even from song to song within one album I feel like things could change even more drastically, and maybe that’ll happen as time goes on. I still have so many different things that I want to do, particularly in terms of genres.”

“I want to do a metal project in particular. I actually just played something for my band mates 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 some time soon!”
