Panic! at the Disco Announces Split After Nearly 2 Decades
After Brendon Urie revealed he and his wife are expecting their first child.
Panic! at the Disco has called it quits. The band, which formed in 2004 and since 2015 has functioned as a solo project for frontman Brendon Urie, has announced the end of an era, seemingly to focus on family.
Urie shared the following statement on Instagram:
“Well, it’s been a hell of a journey…
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.
Panic! at the Disco released seven albums since their debut in 2004. During the band’s active years, Urie has remained the only sole constant member of the group, therefore, there’s no telling what can happen in the future.
Panic! at the Disco will split after embarking on their final tour, which starts on February 20 and concludes on March 10.
