Panic! At The Disco disbands after almost 20 years: ‘Sometimes a journey must end’
Pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco announced that it is disbanding after almost 20 years of performing together.
In a statement posted on their official Instagram page, frontman Brendon Urie said the decision to break up has been hovering over the members’ heads for quite a while amid his redirected focus on his family.
“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,” the US-based group said through Urie.

“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 further said.
As he put to close this chapter of his career, Urie thanked his and the group’s supporters and fans who have grown over the years.
“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… 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,” Urie stated.
He said the group is looking forward to seeing his fans in their upcoming concert tours in Europe and in the United Kingdom before signing off.
“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,” said Urie.
