Panic! at the Disco

Biography

Two childhood friends - guitarist Ryan Ross and drummer Spencer Smith - founded this band after they got involved in rock culture and covered the songs of Blink 182 since they were thirteen. Later they took part in a number of minor teenage groups and formed their own command - Summer League. The band included also two of their friends that later left. In order to replace the musicians that left, Ross and Smith invited bassist Brant Wilson and their school friend Brendon Urie. Initially, Urie tried for the place of the guitarist as Ross was the soloist. However, when the members of Summer League heard Brendon's singing during the rehearsal they gave his the place of the lead vocalist unanimously and changed the name of the band for Panic! At The Disco.

They took an adventurous and eccentric move to promote their music: the musicians connected to bassist of Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz and sent him the link to their official wed-site. Wentz was so impressed with the music of the starting command that headed to Las Vegas to meet the Panic! At The Disco members personally. After he was present at their rehearsal, Wentz proposed them a contract with the label Decaydance. The debut album of the band called A Fever You Can't Sweat Out was released in September 2005 and combined the elements of pop, electronica, rock and many other genres. The brilliant single The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage became the first step of the band to the top of the fame. It was followed by I Write Sins Not Tragedies that presented Panic! At The Disco with the MTV Video Music Awards prize and witty Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off. The band gathered a huge fan base almost immediately, especially among the emo culture members, and sold out more than two million copies of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out.

In May 2006, Wilson officially left Panic! At The Disco. For now, he stated the idea of meeting with the former band in the court. Bassist Jon Walker changed him - at first for the period of the debut support tour, but later he became the full-right member of the collective. In the beginning of 2007, after a lengthy world touring, Panic! At The Disco got down to their second studio attempt. However, the artists proved to be dissatisfied with the result of their labor and decided to rework the whole album. They also started to demonstrate the new material at different concerts and festivals. The Pretty. Odd album saw light in 2008 and was presented to the public by such wonderful hits as Nine In The Afternoon and Mad As Rabbits. The full-length immediately raised a wave of astonishment among the fans of Panic! At The Disco as this undoubtedly qualitative and creative work differed in sound from their pop rock debut. To promote the fresh album, the American musicians arranged a large-scale concert campaign. They recorded and released one of the best shows as a live album called …Live in Chicago (2008).
