Can you believe that American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco has been around for nearly 2 decades? The band was formed in Las Vegas back in 2004 and has produced multiple hits over the years such as “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, “Nine in the Afternoon” and “The Ballad of Mona Lisa”.
Fans over the world grew up listening to the band’s tunes, especially during their teenage years. After most of the members left, lead singer Brendon Urie carried the band’s name as a solo project since 2016. Sadly, that project has now come to an end. Here’s the reason why Panic! At The Disco will be no more:
Posted on Instagram last night ( Tuesday 24th January), Panic! At The Disco officially announced their disbandment. Musician Brendon Urie wrote down a farewell post to reminisce about the time he spent with the band and performing for fans all over the world. “Well, it’s been a hell of a journey…Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imagined where this life would take me. But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin,” he wrote.
As for the reason for discontinuing the musical project, it’s that the singer and his wife Sarah Orzechowski are expecting their first child. “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,” he explained.
The Grammy Awards nominee took a moment in the post to thank fans for their support over the years and that it was a privilege to have shared the stage with many talented singers and musicians. Fellow musicians, celebrities, and fans all commented on the post thanking the band for the music and memories over the years since their 2005 debut album “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out”.
But don’t cry those tears just yet as Panic! At The Disco will be leaving a farewell gift for everyone. The band will be going on tour around the UK and Europe in February so if you want to see them live one last time, now would be the perfect opportunity. It may be safe to assume that Brendon will put his current and future solo projects under his name on hold for the same reason.
