A mysterious website, ShutUpAndGoToBed.com, surfaced over the weekend, seemingly teasing an upcoming album from Brendon Urie’s band, Panic! at the Disco. Fans are using their detective skills to try to break the code and figure out what it means.

The website acts as a sleep calculator, collecting information such as age demographics and bedtimes to provide a personalized wake-up time.
When you first visit the new website, a sleep calculator will ask you for your age, preferred bedtime, and email address. When you click the calculate button, an orange box with the words “Don’t be a diva, it’s time to be free” appears. Whatever bedtime you enter, it tells you that you must “wake up at 6!01”.
The flashing clock face that displays the numbers – thought to refer to the date June 1 – occasionally displays letters instead, reading: “V!LV.” Fans have theorized that this could be a time in numerals (5:55) or “Viva! Las Vegas,” a reference to Urie’s hometown.
“Don’t forget to set your alarm, so you know when to get up,” the site advises over a yellow button that says, “Set an alarm.” Upon clicking the button, an audio of the band’s frontman Urie singing “Shut up and go to bed” starts playing.
The website’s source code also provides additional clues and confirms the site’s connection with the band. “By submitting my information, I agree to receive personalized updates and marketing messages about Panic! at the Disco based on my information, interests, activities, website visits and device data,” one section says.
Further up, the website seems to hint at potential song lyrics that may suggest the tone of the next album cycle: “Nothing’s really real, no one really feels.”
If a new era of Panic! at the Disco is on the way, it would be the band’s first official release in four years after 2018’s Pray for the Wicked.
