581 American Rock Band

Panic! at the Disco was an American pop rock band that formed in 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Childhood friends Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, Brent Wilson, and Brendon Urie started the band and recorded their first demos while they were still in high school.

Their debut studio album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, was released in 2005 and was a commercial success. The album's second single, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," propelled the band to mainstream popularity, and it became certified triple platinum in the US.

In 2006, the band experienced its first lineup change when founding bassist Brent Wilson was fired during a world tour and replaced by Jon Walker. The band's second album, Pretty. Odd., released in 2008, showcased a different sound and style compared to their debut. However, Ross and Walker, who were in favor of the new direction, left the band because Urie and Smith wanted to further experiment with their sound. Ross and Walker went on to form a new band called the Young Veins, leaving Urie and Smith as the remaining members of Panic! at the Disco.

As a duo, Urie and Smith recruited bassist Dallon Weekes and guitarist Ian Crawford as touring musicians. Weekes later became a full-time member in 2010. The band's third studio album, Vices & Virtues, was released in 2011 and recorded solely by Urie and Smith. It marked a return to their original style and was well-received by fans and critics alike. However, Crawford left the band after the tour cycle ended in 2012.

In 2013, Panic! at the Disco released their fourth studio album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!. Prior to the album's release, Smith unofficially left the band due to health and drug-related issues, leaving Urie and Weekes as the remaining members. The duo recruited guitarist Kenneth Harris and drummer Dan Pawlovich as touring musicians.

In 2015, Smith officially left the band, resulting in Panic! at the Disco becoming Urie's solo project. The band released their fifth studio album, Death of a Bachelor, in 2016. It received critical acclaim and marked a significant departure from the band's previous work, showcasing Urie's musical range and experimentation. Weekes later announced his departure from the band in 2017, and Panic! at the Disco released their sixth studio album, Pray for the Wicked, in 2018.

The band's seventh and final studio album, Viva Las Vengeance, was released in 2022. On January 24, 2023, Urie announced that Panic! at the Disco would disband following the conclusion of their Viva Las Vengeance Tour on March 10 of that year.
