Brendon Urie Announces the End of Panic! At The Disco to Focus on Family

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the end of an era. Legendary rock band Panic! at the Disco has announced their decision to call it quits.

Formed in Las Vegas in 2004, Panic! at the Disco quickly rose to fame with their debut album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” which featured hit singles such as “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and “But It’s Better If You Do.” Throughout their career, the band has released six studio albums, sold out tours worldwide, and won numerous awards.

The band’s lead singer, Brendon Urie, announced the decision to disband in a statement to fans.

Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imagined where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.

But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin. We’ve been trying to keep it to ourselves, though some of you may have heard.. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of being a father and getting to watch my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.

That said, I am going to bring this chapter of my life to an end and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that Panic! At The Disco will be no more.

Thank you all for your immense support over the years. I’ve sat here trying to come up with the perfect way to say this and I truly can’t put into words how much it has meant to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or are just finding us, it has been a pleasure to not only share the stage with so many talented people but also share our time with you. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together.

I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for existing.

Fans were shocked and saddened by the news, taking to social media to express their disappointment and to thank the band for the memories. Panic! at the Disco has been a staple in the music industry for nearly two decades, and their influence can be seen in the countless bands that have followed in their footsteps.

The band’s final tour of Europe and the UK, Viva Las Vengeance Tour in support of the latest album of the same name, which we awarded 5 stars in our review, kicks off on February 20th in Vienna, Austria, and will see the band play their last 12 shows.
