Panic! At The Disco Lose Bassist

Brendon Urie is a pure showman, and tonight he unites different ages and genres in one eccentric swoop.

Panic! At The Disco have confirmed they have parted ways with bassist Brent Wilson.

A statement on the band’s official website reads: ‘There really isn’t a good way to say this, and it was a decision that was very tough to make, but feels like it will be the right decision for everyone. We regret to inform you that Brent is no longer a part of Panic at the Disco, and although this choice does feel very healthy, he is a great friend of ours and he will definitely be missed.

‘We all wish him well and the best of luck in everything he wants to do in the future.The last few years will be something we will never forget, all the places we’ve been that we never thought we’d go and things we’ve seen that we thought we’d never see when we started this band.

Right now our friend jon is going to be filling in, and I’m sure it would ease his nerves a bit to get a warm reception. We’re at home preparing for the summer tour, and we’ve never worked so hard on putting something together. I can’t tell you how excited we are for these shows and for you all to see what we’ve been planning, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves…just you wait.’

A friend of the band, Jon is currently filling in before a full-time replacement can be found.
