In today’s cryptic but cool news, Panic! at the Disco are teasing their legions of fans with new music via a mysterious website, shutupandgotobed.com, which heavily hints at new music coming in June.

Last we heard from the Brendon Urie-led band was in 2018 with the album, Pray for the Wicked. So now, with this strange new website, fans are convinced that Panic! is finally about to make a long-overdue return.
Alright so, when you enter the site, you're met with a sleep calculator, with the following directions, “Fill out the sleep calculator with your bedtime to find out when to wake up…” which asks for your age, desired bedtime and email address. If you haven’t ventured to participate yet, here’s a pro tip — regardless of what age and bedtime you put in, once you hit calculate, an orange box appears that reads, “Don’t be a diva, it’s time to be free,” alerting that you “need to wake up at 6!01.”
Which taken as sign, means something is "wake up" worthy on June 1. Other super fan speculations, include the meaning behind the intermittently flashing letters “V!LV,” with some thinking it could either mean the time — 5:55, or “Viva! Las Vegas,” in honor of Urie’s hometown.
Directly under that it reads, “Don’t forget to set your alarm, so you know when to wake up,” above a yellow button that leads you to “Set an alarm.” Upon clicking that particular button, a short clip starts with Urie singing “shut up and go to bed.” So is that the single name or what?!
Also, after some extra, extra, super fan sleuthing, it was discovered that the website’s source code offered up one more cryptic clue. A message — “Nothing’s really real, no one really feels.” Then a bit further down some more insight into what we’ve signed up for, that states, “by submitting my information, I agree to receive personalized updates and marketing messages about Panic! At The Disco based on my information, interests, activities, website visits and device data.”
And now we wait…
