During their visit to Conan
last night, Panic! At The Disco
depart from the circus-inspired presentation that they have become famous for in the past, and instead dressed themselves up in fitted suits and suspenders. The band played their new single, "Mona Lisa", off of their third studio album Vices and Virtues
, which was released on March 22nd. This is the first album that the band has released following the departure of their bandmates Ryan Ross and Jon Walker. As Ross was a major contributer to the lyrical direction of the band, fans had been worried that the songs may face dramatic change, but this performance seems to present a promising loyalty to the intriguing sound that Panic! At The Disco fans originally fell in love with, even if it means less eyeliner.
Check out the video below to judge for yourself how the band is carrying on with its new organization. If it is to your liking, the full album is available on iTunes now!
