A Fever You Can't Sweat Out is the first studio album by the American rock band Panic! at the Disco. Recorded primarily at SOMD! Studios in College Park, Maryland, with the producer Matt Squire, the album was released on September 27, 2005, on Decaydance and Fueled by Ramen. Pete Wentz had discovered and signed the young band the year before, providing them with resources to make the album.
Written and produced during and shortly after the band's graduation from high school, the album was recorded during a short time frame which left them exhausted. With lyrics written by Ryan Ross, Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith, the record covers social issues and topics such as sanctity of marriage, adultery, mental health, alcoholism and prostitution are woven throughout the album.
Bolstered by the top 10 single "I Write Sins, Not Tragedies", as well as "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage", the album peaked at No. 13 on the US Billboard 200, spending 66 weeks on the chart. The album received polarizing critical reviews, with many professional music critics appreciating the fun and catchy atmosphere, while other reviewers differed in their opinions on the originality and sincerity of the record. The album has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the shipment of one million copies. It is by far Panic! at the Disco's most successful release, having sold over 1.8 million copies in the US by 2011 according to Billboard, and over 2.2 million copies worldwide.
