Last week, fans to be shocked as soon as news broke that Panic! in ~ the Disco were parting ways with guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker, that left the band to "embark top top a music excursion of your own."

"It"s been a small while, a few months since we started thinking that this can be the finest thing to do," Ross said ubraintv-jp.com News so late Monday (July 13). "Jon and also I had actually been composing a bunch of ingredient on the road, and also it just acquired to a allude when we were turn off tour, once we were talking around getting together and working top top this stuff, the it ended up being pretty noticeable that we all weren"t wanting to go in the exact same direction. There was a period where we weren"t yes, really talking come each other all that much, and also Jon and I were simply living at my house and also continuing come write. And also we kind of realized we essential to get over not speaking and figure the end what was actually going on. So us all satellite down and pretty much concerned the conclusion that the best thing for anyone was to execute what us did."

Ross said the separation was largely due to creative differences between him and Panic! frontman Brendon Urie. Seems Urie want the band to discover a much more polished popular music sound (like the demo they post on their web site critical week), when Ross — and, by extension, pedestrian — was interested in make retro-inspired rock.

Or, together he placed it: "Brendon"s an ext of a Peter Gabriel fan, and I"m an ext of a ray Davies fan."

"Brendon has constantly been a fan of pop music, however that"s together a vast term, since I guess: v I would certainly say I would certainly be too, but in a different way. Jon and I room still really much affected by the Beatles and also Beach boys stuff and also the Kinks and stuff favor that," Ross said. "And therefore that"s the stuff us were creating at my house ... That"s the ingredient we"re walking to make now. Ns haven"t heard any kind of of Brendon and Spencer "s stuff, to it is in honest."

And eventually, those differences — coupled through the lack of communication in between both camps — pertained to a head. So late last month, Ross had lunch through Smith, and also the two cleared the air, both establish that possibly the ideal thing for all parties involved was to just head their different ways.

"Spencer and I had actually lunch and caught up because that a while, and then the huge question came up, like, "Well, what execute you desire to do?" and also I said, "Well, ns think it could be ideal if we kind of do our own think for a while," and also he said, "I"m glad you claimed that, since I to be going to say the same thing," " Ross recalled. "And there was yes, really no argument, which is yes, really the best means that could"ve worked out. ... Ns think really everybody will certainly be happy act what we"re doing. Me and Jon are really excited around what we"re functioning on, and those males are happy too. I guess it got to the suggest where there can have to be too countless cooks in the kitchen."

Ross made the clear that the break-up was an extremely much an amicable one. He claimed that while he hasn"t heard any type of of the new Panic! stuff, he wishes Urie and Smith well and still considers them both to be his friend (they spoke over the 4th of July weekend). The very same cannot be said, however, around his previous boss — Decaydance documents honcho/ loss Out boy bassist Pete Wentz — who seems to have clearly aligned himself through the Urie/Smith camp complying with the split.

"I haven"t talked to the in a while, since this happened. Ns guess I"ve been an interpretation to call him back. He referred to as me, yet I"ve to let go a lot of phone calls this week," Ross said. "We"re not certain . I"ll need to talk come him, yet obviously native what"s continue online, i think he"s ... He"s written a lot about them. Ns don"t recognize if they"re working with each other on your stuff. I"m no really sure, yet it"s to be awhile due to the fact that we"ve spoken. It"s strange. It"s type of weird."

At push time, Wentz hadn"t responded to ubraintv-jp.com News" request for comment.

And though his relationship with Wentz could be finished, Ross quiet considers the break-up from Panic! to be a "good, healthy" thing. He stated he and also Walker are writing and also recording song (with Pretty. Odd. Producer plunder Mathes) in ~ a lightning-quick pace, and they"ll quickly be revealing the fruits of your labor. The only thing the bothers him, he said, is the method many Panic! fans have actually treated him since the split. It appears that he"s come to be the poor guy in the whole scenario, and also he doesn"t think that"s fair.

"That was probably the worst part, at least for us, knowing civilization were going to it is in upset," the said. "I hope nobody blames anybody. It appears like, due to the fact that those guys are sticking v the name, that it looked choose it"s mine and also Jon"s fault. Ns think a lot of of world blamed us for quitting or ruining the band, and that component didn"t yes, really seem fair, because it wasn"t the case. ... Musically, it got to a roadblock, and we to be going one way and they were going the other. Yet fans will be able to hear it shortly enough. And then perhaps they"ll readjust their minds."
