Biography

Las Vegas, United States (2004 – present)

Panic! At the Disco is currently a three-piece rock band hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada. The current members are vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie, drummer Spencer Smith and, bassist Dallon Weekes. Their debut album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out has sold over 2.2 million copies worldwide, 1.5 million of which were in the United States alone. This shot them into the international spotlight. Their sophomore album Pretty. Odd. debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200. The band released their third album, entitled Vices & Virtues, on March 22, 2011, while the record’s first single, “The Ballad Of Mona Lisa” was released February 1, 2011. Although the band officially formed as Panic! at the Disco in 2004, the first incarnation of the band was formed in 2002 under the name “Pet Salamander”, with Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, Brent Wilson, and Trevor Howell. It was during this time that Ryan Ross wrote “Time To Dance” and “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, so some consider the band to have formed as of 2002.

In 2005, Panic! at the Disco, which at the time included Urie, Smith, guitarist/lyricist Ryan Ross, and bassist Brent Wilson, was discovered by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, who, after hearing demos the band uploaded to PureVolume went to Las Vegas to hear the band play in their garage. He immediately signed them to his Fueled By Ramen label imprint Decaydance. After their debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out was released, bassist Brent Wilson left the band. Although he claims he was fired, the other members deny this.
