3 min read

Panic at the Disco, the pop-rock band that formed nearly 20 years ago in Las Vegas and gradually became a solo vehicle for frontman Brendan Urie, announced Tuesday morning that the group will disband after its upcoming European tour. Urie said that he and his wife are expecting their first child and “I’m going to end this chapter of my life and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that panic! no more at the disco.” His statement follows in full below.

Well, it’s been a journey…
Growing up in Vegas I never imagined where this life would take me. So many places around the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.

But sometimes a journey has to end to start a new one. We are trying to keep it to ourselves, although as some of you may have heard.. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of becoming a father and watching my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.

That said, I am about to close this chapter of my life and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that trepidation! No more at the disco.

Thank you all for your immense support over the years. I’m sitting here trying to come up with the perfect way to say this and I really can’t put into words how much this means to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or just discovered us, it’s a pleasure to share the stage with so many talented people, as well as to share our time with you. I look forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK together one last time.

I love you. I applaud you. Thank you for existing.


The group, which has released seven albums, formed in 2004 while Urie and co-founders Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Brent Wilson were in high school. Their debut album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out”, was released the following year and was propelled by the hit single “I Right Sins Not Tragedies”, which quickly catapulted them to stardom. The album was certified triple platinum and the group swept the MTV Video Music Awards the following year. However, before Wilson left the band and released their sophomore effort, “Pretty. Weird.” which represented a change in musical direction; ultimately Urie and Smith were the only remaining founders. Two more albums, “Vices and Virtues” (Urie and Smith played all instruments) and “To Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!” before Smith unofficially left in 2013 and followed for good in 2015. However, the band had long since become Yuri’s solo vehicle.

Two more albums followed, including Yuri appearing in a lead role in Cyndi Lauper’s musical “Kinky Boots” on Broadway. He has collaborated with many musicians over the years, including Fall Out Boy, most recently, Taylor Swift, dueting with him and appearing on his 2018 hit “Me!” Appeared in extensive videos for this. He relaunched Panic last year with the album and single “Viva Las Vengeance” and followed with a tour, but the band failed to reach its previous heights.

As the only regular member of the band Yuri, it’s unclear what the difference will be between Panic and his future projects, but apparently he felt the name was no longer representative and, at age 35, decided it was time to move on. Be it.
