It’s time to panic because Panic! At The Disco will be “no more.”
On Tuesday, Jan. 24, lead vocalist Brendan Urie released a statement announcing that the band is breaking up after nearly two decades.
“But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin,” the singer began the statement that was shared on the band’s official Instagram page.
He went on to reveal the exciting news that he’s expecting his first child with his wife Sarah, noting that he “looks forward to the new adventure” of “being a father” and “getting to watch my wife become a mother.”
He expressed his gratitude to the fans who have supported the band since their inception in 2004, noting: “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.”
Fans will be able to see the band perform one final time during the upcoming tour, which kicks off Feb. 20, in Vienna, Austria, and concludes March 10, in the U.K. Check out the full list of tour dates.
“I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together,” he concluded the statement.
