List of Panic! at the Disco band members

Panic! at the Disco is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of lead vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by drummer Dan Pawlovich, bassist Nicole Row and guitarist Mike Naran. The group was originally formed by Urie along with former members Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Brent Wilson. The band has gone through multiple line-up changes in their career spanning six albums. There have been six official members of Panic! at the Disco, 13 touring members, and 26 session members.[1][2][3]

The band's first lineup changes started with the departure of bassist Brent Wilson, who was kicked out of the band shortly after the release of the band's debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out.[4][5][6] Wilson was replaced by Jon Walker, who also played guitar and keyboards in addition to bass for the band.

This was followed in 2009 with the band's first major lineup change, when guitarist/vocalist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker announced their departure from the band in mid-2009.[7][8] They were replaced on tour by guitarist Ian Crawford and bassist Dallon Weekes. Weekes joined the band as an official member in 2010, nearing the end of the recording of the band's third studio album Vices & Virtues.[9] Crawford left the band in 2012.

In 2013, before the release of the band's fourth album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, drummer Spencer Smith unofficially left the band due to addiction and substance abuse, leaving Urie and Weekes as the remaining members.[10][11] Urie and Weekes recruited guitarist Kenneth Harris and drummer Dan Pawlovich as touring members.

In 2015, Spencer Smith officially left the band and Dallon Weekes reverted to being a touring member once again,[12][13] leaving Brendon Urie as the only member of the official lineup.

In December 2017, Dallon Weekes officially announced his departure from the band, and was replaced by Nicole Row. In September 2018, touring guitarist Kenneth Harris was dismissed due to sexual misconduct allegations. He was replaced by Mike Naran.
