The Panic! At The Disco frontman has opened up about the first Panic! At The Disco split.
Brendon Urie has opened up about the personal and emotional toll that Ryan Ross and Jon Walker leaving Panic! At The Disco in 2009 had on him in the latest episode of Neighbourhood Of Good, his partnership with State Farm.
In talking about the need to 'show up', Brendon shared "The first split that Panic! Had, I was very depressed. I sometimes wouldn’t leave my house for weeks.
One of my greatest friends and greatest mentors Rob Mathis, he said “dude, just show up. If you just show up, things will happen- this isn’t about you. Get out of your head.” And I just started showing up to the places that people were asking me to go and great things started happening.
You know what matters? People being happy."
The episode continues by following Brendon as he mentors a group of young aspiring musicians at Chicago's James R Jordan Boys and Girls Club- it's pretty heartwarming stuff.
