According to an article on, Mark Hoppus heard a few demos from the new Panic! at the Disco record and has committed to producing at least one. Mark Hoppus is, far and away, the most overrated producer in the scene right now. Mixing his lazy production techniques with Panic! at the Disco’s regressing sound structure seems like an idea so natural, anyone could have come up with it. This just ups my anti-hype for the new Panic! record (anti-hype is when you’re excited to hear a record that you know will be absolute garbage). Try and catch these two bands on tour in a town near you. It should be a fun time for all.
