We here at Noise from the Pit are in utter disbelief that the Las Vegas, Nevada pop-punk sensation Panic! At The Disco have suddenly decided to break up. Yes. Sadly, after nearly twenty years of creating infectious rock classics, Panic! At The Disco are no more. Frontman Brendon Urie, made the shocking announcement of the band ending across Social Media, earlier today around the morning hours.
“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,” Urie typed out in a statement posted on Instagram. “But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin.”
Mr. Urie followed up by stating that Panic! At The Disco “will be no more” after the band finish touring for their upcoming “Viva Las Vengeance” February/March 2023 European/UK tour. And mentioned that the forthcoming birth of his first child as one of the reasons for the band deciding to call it quits. You can read the full statement in regards to Panic! At The Disco breaking-up, right below.
“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.”
