Panic! At The Disco fans are receiving potatoes in the mail for some reason

This is not the first time the band has indulged in such marketing gimmicks. Earlier in March, some fans received bottles of 'holy water' bearing the words 'Pray for the Wicked'.

It's not every day that you find a potato in your mail. It's arguably even weirder when you find a potato with the face of one of your musical icons on it.

But that's exactly what's been happening to a few select Panic! at the Disco fans. Over the last couple of days, the band's fans have been receiving potatoes in the mail complete with photograph of frontman Brendon Urie's face on it. 

Although the potatoes might not be that random after all. Last month Panic! released the violent music video for ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’, which saw Urie stabbing someone in the face through a potato; the video also included significant symbols including a key. Fans are reporting seeing similar symbols accompanying their mystery potatoes in the post, some of which have lyrics of the song written on them. So this might be a complicated gimmick to promote Panic!’s new album ‘Pray for the Wicked,’ which is scheduled for a June 22 release. 

Some fans were clearly puzzled by the whole affair while others were absolutely ecstatic as they took to social media to express their amazement.

Brendon Urie has described new album ‘Pray For The Wicked’ as “my ‘thank you’ to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making an album.”

The band will also be touring in support of the record this summer, and you can check out the full list of cities and dates, along with Pray For The Wicked's track listing, below:
