Here's the thing: Panic At The Disco can split all they want:
We just wanted to let you know, that the news of Ryan and Jon leaving the band is unfortunately true. It’s been an amazing journey being in a band with them, but sometimes individual tastes take friends in different directions and you can’t ignore it. They are some of the most talented guys we know, and we’re sure that whatever they do next will be great. That said, Panic At The Disco is alive and very very well. We are working on new songs that we are excited for you to hear. Our dates
with Blink and Fall Out Boy start in a little less than a month, and we wouldn’t miss those for the world. We know everybody has a lot of questions at this point with everything being so out of the blue, most of those should be answered in the coming weeks. We appreciate every one of you, and hope you continue with us on this incredible ride.
Pay attention we have a surprise in store for you.
-Brendon and Spencer
PS we were cleaning out the practice space and you’ll never guess what we found!
But for all the talk of musical differences (presumably Ryan and Jon didn't want to be anywhere near Fall Out Boy) you just know that this merely means a special reunion tour in about three weeks or something similar.
In the meanwhile, I'll bet Brendon's delighted he gets to keep the drummer.
