The singer shared a written post on his Instagram revealing that he is expecting his first child with wife Sarah and his journey into fatherhood will mark the end of the band he formed in Las Vegas in 2004.
Well, it’s been one hell of a journey…
Growing up in Vegas, I could never have imagined where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.
But sometimes a journey has to end before a new one can begin. We have tried to keep it to ourselves, although some of you may have heard.. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of becoming a father and getting to see my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.
That said, I want to close this chapter of my life and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that panic! At The Disco will be no more.
Thank you all for your great support over the years. I’ve been sitting here trying to find the perfect way to say this and I really can’t put into words how much this has meant to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or just finding us, it’s been a pleasure not only to share the stage with so many talented people, but also to share our time with you. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together.
I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for being there.
