Just about all musicians have material that gets scrapped or is never finished, relegated to rarities for fans to hunt for at best. But sometimes, that music gets unearthed, and that's just what happened with a scrapped Panic! At the Disco album.
The band's former bassist, Jon Walker, tweeted over the weekend that his father had found a CD of demos from Cricket and Clover, the original album planned as the follow-up to debut A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. Those songs were shelved, however, when the band decided to go a different direction, ultimately releasing Pretty. Odd. in 2008. Walker's father-in-law found an additional 14 demos, including tracks for Pretty. Odd. Walker called the demos "weird and dense and beautiful."
Walker, who was in the band from 2006 to 2009, would need permission before he could post the demos, so here's to hoping all parties involved clear it and Panic! fans get the chance to hear them.
Panic! At the Disco has since released plenty of other music in the years since they recorded the demos, of course, and most recently released their sixth album, Pray for the Wicked, over the summer. They're currently on tour through March, with tickets for select shows on sale now right here on AXS.
