Panic! at the Disco is back on the charts with a “Vengeance.”

Brendon Urie‘s band has hit #1 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay ranking with the new single “Viva Las Vengeance.” Panic! previously led the chart twice before, with “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” and the crossover mega-hit “High Hopes.”

Having just dropped on June 1, “Viva Las Vengeance” took only five chart weeks to reach the top spot on Alternative Airplay. The last track to ascend the chart that quickly was Twenty One Pilots‘ “Shy Away,” which hit #1 in three weeks in 2021.

“Viva Las Vengeance” is the lead single and title track off the upcoming seventh Panic! album, which will be released August 19. It’s the follow-up to 2018’s Pray for the Wicked.

Panic! will launch a U.S. tour in support of Viva Las Vengeance in September.
