Death of a Bachelor is the fifth studio album by Panic! At The Disco. It was released on January 15th, 2016.
Brendon Urie has stated that this album is him. He says that when he was a kid, when he heard a song he liked, he would try it on the piano. Then he built his own drum set using old laundry detergent containers when he was about 10 or 11. Then he got a baby guitar. He states that this was what made his music complete. The most popular song on the album is the albums titular track, “Death of a Bachelor”. It peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart and No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This is the only Panic! at the Disco album where all core instruments (guitars, bass, drums, and keyboards,) are all played by solely Brendon Urie. While he used all instruments on every track, he did not play drums on Hallelujah, (instead they were recorded by session musican Mark Stepro.) The creative and art direction was also determined by Urie.
On tour, former member Dallon Weekes left the band altogether in 2017 to continue his new project, "IDK How But They Found Me." He would be replaced by current touring bassist, Nicole Row.
