Inception and Early Stints of Success
Panic! at the Disco was formed by the childhood friends, Spencer Smith and Ryan Ross while attending the high school. Later, the singer and multi-instrumentalist, Brendon Urie was included to the lineup along with the bassist, Brent Wilson. The foursome began jamming and recorded some of the early demos of cover songs. The band posted their experimental demos on different online streams and also sent a few links to Fall Out Boy’s bassist, Pete Wentz. By December 2004, Panic! at the Disco was signed to Decaydance Records.
The band’s debut record, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, was released in 2005 and it charted in a number of countries. The single, I Write Sins Not Tragedies from the album received heavy airplay and soon went Platinum. The album was also eventually certified as Platinum in the US, UK and Australia. With this remarkable success, the band hit the road and played a number of live shows in the country.
Panic! at the Disco released their second studio album, Pretty. Odd. in 2008. The record marked a stylistic shift in their music and received positive reviews from the critics. It topped the ARIA charts and peaked at two on the Billboard 200. In the same year, the band headlined the Honda Civic Tour with their loud and outrageously planned live shows. Panic! at the Disco tickets sales shot up rapidly and made the tour a huge success. During the time, the band released a live album …Live in Chicago.
The band went through a lineup change during the release of their next album as two of the band members left. The remaining members continued to write and record new material. Their career soared further when they released their third acclaimed record, Vices & Virtues in 2011. The album charted at seven on the Billboard 200 and also made its way to several international music charts. Panic! at the Disco embarked on their Virtues & Vices Tour and received an overwhelming response for their electric and theatrical styled live shows.
By the mid of 2013, Panic! at the Disco completed the music arrangements for their new album and released a single, Miss Jackson in July. Their latest album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die hit the shelves in October 2013 and reached at two on the Billboard 200. Besides charting in the US, the album also hit the top ten spots in many countries. Touring since then, the band has added new European and American dates to their schedule. With these shows lined up, the band might also be hitting your nearest venue. Be a part of their power-packed concert to enjoy their peppy live performances.
