Panic! at the Disco just released the brand new music video for their single "The Ballad of Mona Lisa," off their upcoming album Vices & Virtues (out March 29).
In the new video, PATD is up to the theatrics that made them famous, including period costumes and top hats, and they even make a nod to vampires. Singer Brendon Urie told MTV that the concept required some acting, and one of his two characters was inspired by Sweeney Todd and Johnny Depp.

Despite the recent turmoil the band has had, the video is clearly a nod to PATD's roots. "It was a nice homage to some of the first stuff that we had done with [director] Shane [Drake]," Brendon says. "And also, for us, mostly, it was closure."
