One of the current "it" bands, Panic! At the Disco announced that bassist Brent Wilson is leaving the band. The band posted this statement on their site:
"There really isn't a good way to say this, and it was a decision that was very tough to make, but feels like it will be the right decision for everyone. We regret to inform you that Brent is no longer a part of Panic at the Disco, and although this choice does feel very healthy, he is a great friend of ours and he will definitely be missed. We all wish him well and the best of luck in everything he wants to do in the future. The last few years will be something we will never forget, all the places we've been that we never thought we'd go and things we've seen that we thought we'd never see when we started this band."
Panic says their friend "Jon" will fill in for now. The lineup change comes just before their first major summer tour, which is set to kickoff June 6th in Tuscon, Arizona. A large number of dates are already sold out.
