Panic At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie talks about channelling The Beatles, recording at Abbey Road and the influence on their music of Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk.

Are there any similar literary or filmic references on this album?
“I can’t say that there’s that similarity,” replies Brendon. “A lot of the lyrics are more honest this time around; there’s a lot from personal experience. Some of them that are made-up are kind of fantastical, fairytale-type lyrics. But for the most part, they’re
about what we were feeling when we were writing at that moment in time.”
And what we were you feeling?
“We were just feeling happy to be in a band. We were having a lot of fun writing songs and had a lot of good experiences. It was great.”
