Don't Panic - Release New Single "The Long Way" plus UK Tour with Thomas Nicholas

After a highly successful and fruitful 2023 that included the exciting news of their comeback to the UK, the beloved Pennsylvanian pop punk band, Don't Panic, is launching into 2024 with the release of an enticing new single!

Derived from their freshly unveiled album, "Setting Up To Fail," the track titled "The Long Way" exemplifies why the quintet, led by frontman Ted Felicetti, is swiftly expanding its fanbase on both sides of the Atlantic. Be sure to watch the music video for "The Long Way," drawing inspiration from the iconic film Weekend At Bernie's, below:

Don't Panic are counting down their return to the UK, which is now just two months away with the tour taking place at the end of March 2024. Having made a huge success of their first full band UK tour, their February 2023 co-headline run alongside The Dollyrots, Don't Panic were eager to play more shows on UK shores. Running a co-headline bill worked so well last time, Don't Panic have decided to do it again; This time they have enlisted alt-rock star Thomas Ian Nicholas (of American Pie / Rookie Of The Year fame) and his band to join them! 

Don't Panic and The Thomas Nicholas Band will be heading up and down across the length of the UK for nine dates at the end of March, taking in Scotland, Wales and large parts of England! The full list of shows can be found below:

Here's Don't Panic frontman Ted Felicetti on just how excited they are to return to the UK:

"We are so beyond excited to be heading back to the UK this spring! Earlier in 2023 we did our first ever co-headline tour over there with our great friends in The Dollyrots. As soon as that tour ended, we knew we had to return as soon as possible. I guess we just didn't get our fill of Wetherspoons, Travelodges and Kabobs! And is it really living if we can't watch our new favo(u)riteTV show 'Naked Attraction' to end our nights?

After a very short discussion we knew we needed to once again have an awesome touring partner, and that was an easy decision. We figured why not ask our good friend Thomas Ian Nicholas, of American Pie and Rookie of the Year fame, to join us on the road. After all, we grew up watching his movies! With the addition of local UK boys 'Who Saves the Hero?' to round it out, and we have The NAKED ATTRAC-TOUR! This is going to be a GREAT time of amazing music, bands and friends. So, do NOT miss out!"

Don't Panic released their new album Setting Up To Fail at the end of Summer 2023, and are very much looking forward to playing the new material on the upcoming tour. Some of the songs from Setting Up To Fail will be heard live in the UK for the first time on this tour! 

With praise such as "Don't Panic's third album, Setting Up To Fail, marks their triumphant return, fusing matured songwriting influenced by punk and rock legends, shaping their unique sonic identity" (Rebel Noise) offering a view of what awaits ticket holders for the tour next year, this is a great chance to hear some fantastic new songs in some wonderful venues across the UK.

Snap up tickets before it is too late!
