Andrew Lipovsky/NBCAfter revealing details of their upcoming album, Pray for the Wicked, earlier on Wednesday, Panic! at the Disco delivered the debut performance of one of their new songs on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
And that wasn't all. Frontman Brendon Urie earned some laughs in a comedy segment on The Tonight Show by singing the theme from DuckTales.
As part of his "Audience Suggestion Box" bit, Fallon presented a question from a fan that read, "Jimmy, I saw Panic! at the Disco was on your show and I love Brendon Urie. He can make any song he sings sound amazing. Can you have Brendon come out and sing the DuckTales theme song?”
Lo and behold, Brendon came out and offered up a very animated take on the cartoon theme song while being backed by The Roots.
Later on in the show, Brendon and the rest of Panic! at the Disco rocked their new song "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" complete with a full horn section. Fallon seemed to be blown away by the performance, gushing profusely as he greeted the band.
Brendon wasn't done putting on a show, though, as he danced enthusiastically to The Roots' outro music as the credits rolled.
Panic! at the Disco's new album, Pray for the Wicked, drops June 22.
ABC/Image Group LAWhen Mike Shinoda released his Post Traumatic EP in January, each of the threesongs was accompanied by a very personal video, often showing the Linkin Park member from odd angles and in extreme closeup. In making the videos, Shinoda says he found himself experimenting with new ways to represent the emotional nature of the songs.
"To be honest, there were times when I felt like I was getting really weird," Shinoda tells Kerrang!.
"By the time I had the songs, I knew I was going to put these out into the world," he continues. "One way or another, they were going to come out. So I wanted them to have visuals that were also as personal as they could be."
Given that the songs on Post Traumatic deal largely with Shinoda's grief over the death of his friend and band mate Chester Bennington, it makes sense that he'd want the videos to feel as personal as the songs. But he admits he took that notion to the extreme by making the videos entirely by himself.
"I didn't want anyone else touching them," Shinoda says. "I didn't want anyone else holding a camera. So I basically shot stuff on my phone, edited it in Final Cut, and there it was."
By doing so, Shinoda hoped to create "the most visceral version" of what the videos could be.
"I think sometimes with videos, when they're made to look very beautiful, sometimes they become better," Shinoda explains. "But there are other times when it's the ugliness that makes it powerful."
In addition to the Post Traumatic songs, Shinoda has also been working on a full-length album solo album.
ABC/Randy HolmesLinkin Park's charity Music for Relief, which the band founded following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, has joined forces with the Entertainment Industry Foundation to become the long-running organization's official crisis relief program.
"My bandmates and I founded Music for Relief in the spirit of collaboration; recognizing that we could do more in partnership with others," guitarist Brad Delson tellsBillboard. "Joining forces with EIF exemplifies the teamwork that will make both entities stronger."
"The Entertainment Industry Foundation has the capability to activate the entertainment community around a cause, which is what we set out to achieve with Music for Relief," he added.
Music for Relief has raised over $11 million since it started, and has helped the survivors of natural disasters included Hurricane Katrina and earthquakes in Haiti, Japan and Nepal.
In commemoration of Bennington's birthday Tuesday, Music for Relief launched a fundraiser through its One More Light Fund to benefit 320 Changes Direction, a mental health awareness campaign started by Chester wife, Talinda.
ABC/Randy HolmesCorey Taylor has shared a brief cover of the Audioslave song "Getaway Car" in honor of the late Chris Cornell. The Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman posted his piano-based take on the track on his Instagram.
"A little tribute to a sorely missed artist," Taylor wrote in the caption, along with the hashtag "#Cornell."
Following Cornell's death last May, Taylor and Stone Sour performed a cover of Soundgarden's "Outshined."
In related news, System of a Down's Serj Tankian joined Cornell's Audioslave band mates Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brand Wilk to perform "Like a Stone" in honor of the late musician during a Prophets of Rage show in New Zealand Tuesday.
Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records; Rosanna Jones and The Visual Strategist After weeks of cryptic teasers, Panic! at the Disco has finally announced the details of their next album. The sixth studio effort from Brendon Urie and company is indeed called Pray for the Wicked, and will arrive June 22.
"After being away in New York for months doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to L.A.," says Urie in a statement. "I was so revved up that I asked some friends to come over to my home studio to help me write about all the incredible things I've experienced the last couple of years. Pray For the Wicked is my 'thank you' to our fans and the most fun I've ever had making an album."
If you want a preview of what Pray for the Wicked sounds like, Panic! has shared not one, but two new songs from the album: "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" and "(F*** a) Silver Lining." Both songs are available for digital download, and "Say Amen" is accompanied by a video featuring Urie stylishly fighting off a group of home invaders, which you can watch now on YouTube.
In even more Panic! news, the band has announced a massive headlining tour in support of Pray for the Wicked, which begins July 11 in Minneapolis. The summer trek wraps up August 18 in Las Vegas.

ABC/Nicole WilderJack White has shared another preview of his forthcoming solo album Boarding House Reach with a new track titled "Ice Station Zebra."
Even by the standards of the previously released songs "Corporation" and "Respect Commander," "Ice Station Zebra" is a weird one, lacking any traditional structure and combining elements of rock, hip-hop, funk and jazz. To listen for yourself, you can download the track now via digital outlets.
Boarding House Reach, which also features the singles "Connected By Love" and "Over and Over and Over," arrives March 23.
White will launch a North American tour in support of the album April 19 with a hometown show in Detroit. Along the way, he'll be headlining a number of festivals, including Jazz Fest, Boston Calling, Governors Ball and Lollapalooza.
Prior to the tour, White is playing an album release day show on March 23 in Brooklyn, New York. The show will stream live online starting at 10 p.m. ET via Twitter.
Loma Vista RecordingsMarilyn Manson has shared a teaser for his upcoming "Tattooed in Reverse" video, and it stars the one and only Courtney Love.
The 10-second clip shows the Hole frontwoman dressed as a nurse and pushing the famed shock-rocker around in a wheelchair.
"Who allowed Courtney Love to be my nurse?" Manson writes in the video caption. "Oh s***...I did."
Love and Manson's relationship over the years has been...interesting. The two were rumored to be in a long-running feud, but in a 2015 interview, Manson said that he and Love "never really had a falling out. ...We've always been weird with each other, because she's slept with pretty much every one of my friends, supposedly," Manson said.
"Tattooed in Reverse" is a song from Manson's new album, Heaven Upside Down. He'll support it on a co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie this summer.

DominoArctic Monkeys have announced a vinyl reissue for their 2006 debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. The limited edition, "smoke"-colored LP is available exclusively via the Vinyl Me, Please record subscription service.
Along with the record, the Whatever People Say I Am reissue will come with a 16-page full-color lyric and photo booklet. If you're interested in subscribing, visit VinylMePlease.com.
Upon its release in 2006, Whatever People Say I Am became the fastest-selling debut album in the history of British music.

With their subsequent albums, Arctic Monkeys have moved towards a heavier, more arena-ready rock sound, especially with their most recent effort, 2013's AM. The band has recently been working on a new album, which is expected to arrive sometime this year.
ABC/Randy HolmesThe late Chester Bennington would've celebrated his 42nd birthday today. To mark the occasion, Linkin Park is launching a fundraiser to benefit 320 Changes Direction, a mental health awareness campaign started by Bennington's widow, Talinda.
"The mission is to change how we think and talk about mental health," the band explains. "Enabling people who are struggling to seek help and streamlining resources for individuals and families."
Along with the fundraiser, several of Bennington's band mates have posted tributes to honor his birthday. Mike Shinoda posted a picture of Bennington performing live and wrote, "Happy birthday buddy," while bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrellshared a photo of him and Chester wearing funny glasses.
In the caption, Farrell wrote, "Happy Birthday, my friend. You are dearly missed. I think about you more now than ever. You could always make me laugh so easily...it's one of the many things I miss about you."
Credit: Michelle ShiersDuring his life, the late Scott Weiland was known for singing through a megaphone during his live performances. New Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt, however, won't be bringing that move back to the stage.
Eerily enough, though, a megaphone was involved in convincing Gutt to take the STP gig. When he got the call telling him he got the job, Gutt was in his laundry room -- and a megaphone happened to be sitting next to the washing machine.
"I felt like that was Scott's way of giving me a little nod," Gutt says.
Stone Temple Pilots recently wrapped their first tour with Gutt in support of the band's new, self-titled album. They'll hit the road again for a festival run in April.
ABC/Fred LeePanic! at the Disco didn't play any new music at their tiny surprise gig in Cleveland Monday, but the band did introduce a new bassist: Nicole Row.
"Ok...I can finally say it. Playing bass for @panicatthedisco!" Row wrote in an Instagram post Tuesday morning. "Love these dudes so much already. Not only the band, but the whole team is incredible. So grateful to be a part of this crew."
Row takes over bass duties from Dallon Weekes, who left Panic! late last year. Row's previously played with artists including Miley Cyrus, Daya and Troye Sivan.
The Cleveland gig took place Monday night after weeks of teasing that something Panic!-related would be happening on March 19. Many guessed that new music could be dropping that day, but that didn't happen. However, Panic! has now begun teasing the date March 21, the same day they'll be playing NBC's The Tonight Show. So feel free to restart the hype train.
Credit: Hunter AirheartCOIN's new single "Growing Pains" takes the Nashville band in a few different sonic directions from their 2016 breakthrough single "Talk Too Much." But surprisingly, "Growing Pains" was actually written about two-and-a-half years ago, even before "Talk Too Much" came together.
"I'm going on these Brian Wilson-esque journeys for two-and-a-half years at a time and figuring out the right amount of three minutes and 30 seconds," frontman Chase Lawrence tells ABC Radio. "And the right little times to put little noises in and stuff."
"I think that's where a lot of the experimentation comes from, the little new sounds, it's just me being in my room for hours alone," he laughs.
On the lyrical side, "Growing Pains" explores being on the road away from family and loved ones and how "unappealing" that can be -- and the song doesn't actually include the phrase "growing pains."
"I'm just trying to figure out what I wanna be, what we all wanna be, whether we wanna settle down, or quit doing this," Lawrence explains. "I figured out that sentiment is...much more than just me being unappealing to my girlfriend and my job being unappealing, this is just part of growing up, and I realized how universal that was. And that's where the title came from."
You also won't find any mention of the '80s sitcom Growing Pains, which starred Alan Thicke and Kirk Cameron, in the song. However, Lawrence has previously dropped references to another TV show in his music.
"I love Saved by the Bell still to this day," he says. "I've seen every episode."
COIN is currently working on a new album, the follow-up to 2017's How Will You Know If You Never Try.

ABC/Randy HolmesJack Antonoff has some trouble setting the scene in Bleachers' video for "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)," which is streaming now on YouTube.
In the clip, Antonoff plays an actor starring in a rom-com who keeps messing up the climactic scene due to a variety of incidents, including walking into a waiter and breaking his nose. But, like most rom-coms, the video has a happy ending.
Bleachers recorded "Alfie's Song" for the new film Love, Simon, which is in theaters now. The movie's soundtrack, which Antonoff executive produced, also features a new Bleachers track called "Keeping a Secret."
