Brent Wilson, bassist of Panic At the Disco, has quit the band. The band posted a statement:

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.

The band, signed to Pete Wentz's Decaydance label, released A Fever You Can't Sweat Out last year and will soon begin a headlining tour with the Dresden Dolls and OK Go and The Hush Sound
