Panic! At The Disco – From Garage To Greatness


The rock band Panic! At The Disco offers fresh sounds for enthusiastic rock fans. They are a young group that has made great success with their debut album, and their fans will enjoy them for a long time to come.

The group was originally formed by Ryan Ross and Spencer Smith in the suburb of Summerlin, Las Vegas. Brent Wilson and Brendon Urie later joined the group, which was originally called Summer League. They were originally a garage band that played locally. In the hopes of gaining a music label, they searched out Peter Wentz, bassist for the band Fall Out Boy, and sent him a link to a site online on which he could listen to their music. Liking what he heard, Peter Wentz traveled to them and listened to them play live. He later signed them to his label, Decaydence/Fueled by Ramen. Brent Wilson left the band for unexplained reasons which are still quite controversial and was later replaced by Jon Walker who currently plays bass for the band.

Their single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” has had much commercial success. They were on MTV’S Total Request Live January 17, 2006. They first showed their video there, and it was subsequently seen all over the Internet and music television waves shortly after. They have published a few other videos since then, but none with the same kind of success as the first. In fact, the video for “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” won an award for Video of the Year on MTV’s Music Video Awards.

Their album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” has also enjoyed success, having gone platinum. Of course, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” is the most well-known song, but some of the others on the album have become well-known with the music videos that have been created for them.

Panic! At The Disco’s live performances not only feature them in combination with headliners but have a circus-like quality about them. They have dancers and other performers on stage with them as they perform their own work. They have also covered several well-established bands, such as The Beatles and the Smashing Pumpkins. They are currently working on their second album which is due out sometime this year.

This one-time, small-town garage band has enjoyed successes that many would envy. They are enjoyed on more than one continent. Their fans have spoken by awarding them for their creativity in their video-making and their talent as musicians. Their talents are proven time and again through the making of their wonderful and creative music, as well as the time and effort that they put into creating their videos.
