After nearly two decades, Brendon Urie has announced the breakup of Panic! At the Disco in a new statement.

The vocalist shared a written post on his Instagram, revealing that he’s expecting his first child with his wife Sarah, and his journey into fatherhood will mark the end of the band he formed in Las Vegas in 2004.

Urie founded Panic! At the Disco alongside Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Brent Wilson, though the lineup underwent a few changes over time. After four studio albums as a band, PATD put three records out that featured Urie as the only true member — 2016’s Death of a Bachelor, 2018’s Pray for the Wicked and 2022’s Viva Las Vengeance.

Panic! At the Disco’s upcoming tour, which will mark the band’s final set of dates, kicks off Feb. 20 in Vienna, Austria, and will wrap up March 10 in Manchester, U.K. See all of the upcoming shows on their website.

We wish Urie the best as he moves forward.
