Panic! At the Disco is the creative vehicle for St. George, Utah Native Brendon Urie. The group was originally founded by Urie, along with his childhood friends. The foursome scored their first hit with “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” a song from their debut album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out.
Since the release of their debut studio record, vocalist Brendon Urie has served as the creative leader of the group, and they went on to release three more albums as a band – Pretty. Odd., Vices & Virtues, and Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! After these records came out, Urie made Panic! At the Disco his solo project.
Since Urie went solo, he’s released two more albums under the Panic moniker – Death of a Bachelor and Pray for the Wicked. Along the way, he’s scored multiple hits, including “Say Amen (Saturday Night),” “Hallelujah,” and “Hey Look Ma, I Made It.”
This is the story of how Panic! At the Disco became a band, the music they made together, and Brendon Urie’s work as a solo artist.
