Dallon Weekes is leaving Panic! At The Disco effective immediately according to the latest post on his Instagram account.
The bassist who joined the band in 2009 following the departure of Jon Walker and founding guitarist Ryan Ross, has confirmed the news, saying he is: “Indebted to those who made me feel welcome to be a part of P!ATD.”
Weekes has been a full-time member of the band since 2009 and co-wrote much of ‘Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!‘ album which was released in 2013.
For the last eight years I've had the incredible opportunity to perform in Panic! At The Disco. While I’m sad to announce that my time with Panic! has come to an end, I’m excited to continue making music with my new project ‘I Don’t Know How But They Found Me’ @idkhow . I’m grateful for the chance I’ve had to be part of Panic! At The Disco for nearly a decade. I will always consider myself indebted to those who made me feel welcome to be a part of P!ATD. You changed my life. Thank you all.
However, it’s not the last we’ll hear of him either as the bassist has confirmed he is leaving the band to focus on solo projects such as ‘I Don’t Know How But They Found Me‘.
Weekes stated: “I will always consider myself indebted to those who made me feel welcome to be a part of P!ATD. You changed my life. Thank you all.”
