Panic! at the Disco is no more.

Brendon Urie announced on Instagram Tuesday morning that he would no longer be making music under the longstanding pop punk moniker, opting instead to turn his focus to his family life for the time being.

“Well, it’s been a hell of a journey…” he wrote. “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.”

Urie announced that his wife, Sarah, is pregnant, and looking towards being a father has prompted the decision to shift his attention towards that next adventure — “and with that Panic! At The Disco will be no more.”

Panic! at the Disco started as a four person band in 2004, exploding onto the scene before dissent within the group led to its numbers dwindling over the years. By 2015, it had officially become Urie’s solo project, though fans stayed loyal as both the membership and sound evolved over the years.

Urie said that he will finish out the current Viva Las Vengeance tour, which has remaining dates in Europe, before officially calling it quits.

Is Brendon Urie pansexual?

Yes, Urie came out as pansexual in 2018.

Who were the original members of Panic! at the Disco?

Panic! at the Disco originally consisted of Brendon Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson.

Why did Panic! at the Disco break up?

Wilson was fired from the band in 2006, Ross left after the second album due to disagreements on musical style, and Smith officially quit in 2015 after taking a break two years prior for personal issues. Urie called it quits on the whole thing in 2023 to focus on his family.
