Spencer Smith, one of the founders and drummer of the american rock band Panic! At The Disco for over 10 years, announced that he will be leaving the band. He post an emotional blog post on the band’s official website, saying: “After ten years of being a part of this unbelievable journey, it saddens me to say that I will be leaving Panic. This was not an easy decision to come to, but after a lot of thinking it became clear that this is what’s right for me and the band. I love this band with all my heart, and getting to see it grow from four kids in my parents’ garage to what it is now has been incredible. I loved it all. But, at a certain point, I realized that I wasn’t able to be there for the band the way I wanted to be, and more importantly, the way they needed me to be“.
