The band’s former guitarist, Ryan Ross, and bassist, Jon Walker, left Panic! in July 2009, and now we all know why: they had different musical goals in mind.
The two guys are currently finalizing a record deal for the summer release of Take a Vacation, their debut record as the “Young Veins”, reports Spin Magazine. The new sound is anything but Panic! at the Disco, but that is probably the point.
“It’s a song about having a good time with your friends,” Ross told Spin of the song, entitled “Young Veins (Die Tonight).”
Walker, who is now on lead guitar, and Ross recorded all 11 songs on Take a Vacation in Los Angeles with the rest of Young Veins: bassist Andy Soukal, drummer Nick Murray, and keyboardist Nick White. The album was completed with the help of Phantom Planet’s Alex Greenwald. Young Veins recently surfaced in Los Angeles to play their first live show.
