Brendon Urie confirms Panic! At The Disco split, reveals he and his wife are expecting their first baby

Nothing sets the fans of Panic! At The Disco in panic than an announcement that their favorite band will split up.

After 19 years since its formation, American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie officially announced that the group is set to disband after their European leg of “Viva Las Vengeance” world tour.

On January 25, the 35-year-old singer took to Instagram to confirm the surprising news. Urie wrote: “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,” he added.

Urie shared that he will begin a new chapter in his life as he and his wife Sarah Orzechowski are expecting their first child together. He said: “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.”

Shortly after, Urie went on to drop the bombshell that Panic! At The Disco will be disbanded as he will focus more on his family.

“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,” said Urie.

Urie ended his statement by thanking his fans for their support for nearly two decades and expressing his excitement to see them in the European leg of their “Viva Las Vengeance” tour.

As soon as the news hit the internet, fans of the band were pretty much in shock and still processing the announcement. Some expressed their sadness over the end of the band’s chapter, while many congratulated Urie for welcoming a new one.

On the other hand, others poked fun at the fact that Urie will be disbanding a one-man band.

Well, thank you for the house of memories you gave, P!ATD. Congratulations to Brendon and Sarah for this new chapter of your life!

Panic! At The Disco was a Las Vegas-based pop-rock band formed in 2004 by Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. The group released their debut album in 2005 titled “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” which spawned the single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” which catapulted them into fame.

Since then, Panic! At The Disco released three more albums as a band: “Pretty. Odd. (2008),” “Vices & Virtues (2011),” and “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die (2013).”

In 2015, Panic! At The Disco became Urie’s solo project after the rest of the founding members and the new ones left.

As a solo act, Urie released three albums that got warm receptions from his fans, including “Death of the Bachelor (2016),” “Pray for the Wicked (2018),” and “Viva Las Vengeance (2022).”
