[/tweetable]Speaking to the magazine, Brendon Urie explained – when questioned when something fresh should be expected – that: “If I had to guess, I’d say this year.”

“I’ve really never stopped writing,” he said. “I’m picking through demos that I’d been working on for the last couple of years. Every day I’m writing something. I write an idea a day. Even if it’s 10 seconds of a melody or a lyric. I love it too much to not work. It would drive me crazy to not do anything.”

Urie also touched on the departure of drummer Spencer Smith. “ I love him so much,” he revealed to Billboard, “even as a friend, but having him make that decision for himself… I’m really proud of him. To come out and be so confident telling people, “Hey, this is what I need to do.” We’ve played without him for a while, but this will be one of the first since he officially left. I think it will be fun. The fans are always very supportive, so that makes it a lot easier.”

“It didn’t take me by surprise,” he continued. It wasn’t talked about a lot. We had minimal conversations about what he wanted to do. Any time we’d hang out we were just hanging out as friends. There was never any business or band meeting. We still hang out all the time. It’s nice to have a friend instead of worrying about band and business stuff. I knew shortly before [the announcement]. We had a few discussions and he told me what he wanted to do and I backed that 100 percent. Obviously I’m going to miss him in the band, but I’m proud of him. I love him to death.”
