Weekes joined the band in 2009 when former bassist Jon Walker and founding guitarist Ryan Ross left the group, reports NME. Weekes has been a part of Panic! at the Disco from 2010 – 2015. He helped co-write much of 2013’s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!

“For the last eight years I’ve had the incredible opportunity to perform in Panic! At The Disco. 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’ @idkhow.
“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.”
