Panic at the Disco is an American band that was formed in 2004 by childhood friends (and now band mates) Ryan Ross and Spencer Smith in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its current members include Brendon Urie
(vocals, guitar, keyboards), Ryan Ross (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Spencer Smith (drums, percussion), and Jonathan Jacob Walker (bass guitar, vocals). Former member Brent Wilson (original bass guitarist) left the band in 2006 and was later replaced by Walker. Panic at the Disco released their first album “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” in 2005, featuring their first and most popular single to date “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.” Other songs in the album include “But Its Better If You Do,” “Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have without Taking Her Clothes Off,” and “Build God, Then We’ll Talk.” The album eventually turned platinum in 2006 after having sold more than one million copies. Just recently, the band released their follow-up album “Pretty. Odd.”
The first single in this album, “Nine in the Afternoon,” was featured during one of the episodes of the hit TV series “Heroes.” They are signed under Decadence, a record label owned by Pete Wentz of the band Fall Out Boy, a band considered by many as emo. Emo or not, Panic at the Disco is definitely one band to look out for!
