Turnstile have been incomes reward off their Glow On album over the previous couple of years, rising as certainly one of arduous rock’s buzz bands, however watching their ascent felt slightly acquainted for Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz. Actually, the musician likened seeing them of their present state to what it was like watching Panic! on the Disco’s rise in the beginning of their profession.
Wentz performed a key function in bringing Panic! on the Disco to the lots, talking about how taken he was with the group upon first listening to their music. He instructed Tuna on Toast podcast host Stryker (as heard beneath), “It was great. It was fantastic and I needed to sign this band. I didn’t even have a record label and that was the inception of all of that. Then we drove to Vegas, me and Dan, a guy who worked with us, we drove to Vegas and we saw them practice in a practice space. They really couldn’t play some of the songs because there were just dance music moments and they were like, ‘We don’t really know how to play this.’”
Wentz continued, “They had the rawness and they had a magical thing there. You know when there’s a band or an artist and there’s just a thing. It’s like with Turnstile [today], there’s just a thing. You see them live and there’s something with those guys onstage doing that thing, and I think another band could sound very similar, but there’s a magic dust there.”
Turnstile actually began connecting with critics on their 2018 sophomore set Time & House, then took an enormous leap ahead with the lots on their third album, 2021’s Glow On. That included a pair of Grammy nominations.
Panic! on the Disco initially impacted with 2005’s A Fever You Cannot Sweat Out, receiving vital accolades and including a MTV Video of the 12 months trophy for his or her “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” video.
Wentz was additionally fast to level out the significance of help for younger bands. “[Panic’s start] felt like Fall Out Boy when we were getting all those rejection letters,” he recalled. “There were only a few bands that took us under their wing. Less Than Jake did, this band called Punchline did. And we always had these bands that took us out and I always liked the spirit of that. And to me when I saw hip-hop, there was always like this communal spirit and it just felt like a culture and I thought, why couldn’t we do that?” So Fall Out Boy welcomed Panic!, helping to bring the band to audiences in their early days.
Since those early days, Panic! at the Disco has evolved to where Urie is the sole remaining original member. In late January, Urie announced that he is moving forward without the Panic! at the Disco moniker after one last run later this year.
