Panic is the seventh studio album by punk rock band MxPx.

Release[edit]

It was released on June 6, 2005 internationally and a day later in the United States. This was a breakthrough album when the single "Heard That Sound" proved a minor radio hit. It also featured the Blink-182/+44 singer-bassist Mark Hoppus on "Wrecking Hotel Rooms." Two B-sides (an unreleased track called "Arrest Me" and a live/acoustic version of "Waiting for the World to End") were released on a SideOneDummy sampler in 2005.

"Heard That Sound" was released to radio on May 17, 2005.[4] Between mid June and mid August 2005, the group went on the 2005 edition of Warped Tour.[5] "Wrecking Hotel Rooms" was released to radio on July 26, 2005.[4] In January 2006, the band went on a co-headlining UK tour with The Starting Line, with support from The Matches and I Am the Avalanche.[6]
