Bassist Dallon Weekes has announced he has left the ranks of Panic At The Disco after eight years with the band. He made the announcement on Instagram.
“For the last eight years I’ve had the incredible opportunity to perform in Panic! At The Disco,” he wrote. “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’. 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.”
Weekes first joined the band in 2009 as a touring member and was upgraded to a full-time member the next year. He helped to co-write the 2013 album Too Weird To Live, Too Rare to Die!, but reverted to a touring member again in 2015 when frontman Brendon Urie started working with outside writing partners.
