After a run of nearly 20 years, Panic! at the Disco will soon be a “House of Memories” for Brendan Urie, a singer who has racked up an impressive net worth with the pop-rock band. Brendan announced on Instagram on Tuesday, Jan. 24, that Panic! at the Disco — which is now a solo project for the singer — will soon “be no more” as he prepares to welcome a baby with wife Sarah Urie.

“The prospect of being a father and getting to watch my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting,” Brendan wrote in Tuesday’s Instagram announcement. “That said, I am going to bring this chapter of my life to an end 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 immense support over the years.”

Panic! at the Disco — which Brendan started in 2004 with Ryan Ross and Spencer Smith while the trio was still in high school — was almost immediately successful. The group’s first album, 2005’s “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” has gone triple-Platinum, thanks to the success of the single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”

By 2016, the other Panic! at the Disco members had dropped out, but Panic still enjoyed success, even with just Brendan’s involvement. Its 2018 single “High Hopes” is now Platinum-certified five times over, with sales of 5 million units, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. Plus, Brendan was featured on the 2019 Taylor Swift track “ME!,” which spent 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Brendan has a net worth of $12 million.
