This past week, Panic! at the Disco dropped their latest music video for their single “High Hopes” off their latest album Pray For The Wicked, which was released earlier this year. In the video, directed by Brendan Walter and Mel Soria, Brendon Urie is literally climbing a skyscraper in downtown L.A., defying gravity and capturing everyone’s attention.
The video shows him climbing as a captive audience remains on the ground filming it in awe. Eventually, Brendon reaches the top and is met with cheers from everyone on the ground before having a jam session on the top of the building with the rest of the band.
The video’s description even gives you a little inspiration, if the song didn’t give you enough:
“No matter how hard your dreams seem, keep going. You might even have to climb up the side of a building in downtown L.A., but it’ll all be worth it at the top.”

While there’s no denying that the video is frightening, the message is that we should continue to pursue our dreams no matter how distant and impossible they may seem. And, after all, isn’t that the whole point of music? To make us dream and give us the hope and reassurance we need that we can overcome obstacles and get to where we want to be someday? We think so, which is why we found the music video to be particularly inspiring, especially since we’ve grown up listening to Panic! At The Disco.

The “High Hopes” music video was released ahead of the band’s 2019 leg of the Pray For The Wicked Tour, which began on January 10 in Buffalo, NY and ended on February 20 in Sacramento, CA. The tour then went to Europe on March 14. Tickets for the second leg of the tour can be found here.
