Backstage at Virgin Fest: Panic! At the Disco

SPIN Staff

Panic! At the Disco emerged from their Las Vegas studio to play Virgin Fest, and, of course, to roll through Spin's tent backstage at Baltimore's Virgin Festival (Aug. 5) for a chat with Spin's Steve Kandell following their midday performance. Uncharacteristically dressed down in t-shirts, flip-flops, and jeans, the boys of Panic! divulged details about writing their much-anticipated follow up to 2005's debut A Fever Your Can't Sweat Out, their newfound musical influences -- "the classics," including the Beatles and the Band, the latter of whom they covered in their set -- and their performance of two new tunes.
