Bredon Urie is the lead vocalist of the pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco who possesses a breathtakingly electrifying voice that has the ability to hit high notes while still being able to reach the low notes. Urie can sing as low as a Bass and as high as a Soprano, but just what is his vocal range?
Urie’s vocal range spans across a spectacular four octaves from D2-C5 – he shares the same low note as Frank Sinatra, one of the most influential singers of the 20th century. In a variety of his songs like “This Is Gospel” and “High Hopes”, he can be heard hitting sensationally high notes.
Read on to find out more about Urie’s successful studio albums and learn about why Urie is the last man standing in the band.
Panic! At The Disco
The band Panic! At The Disco was formed in 2004 by Brendon and his childhood friends, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. There have been two other band members since the band formed, namely Jon Walker and Dallon Weekes.
Out of six studio albums, in total, 4.8 million copies have been sold in the US. It’s unknown how many copies of their albums have been sold worldwide.
Let’s take a look at some of the band’s studio albums.
A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out (2005)
A year after the band formed, they released their first album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out which spent a staggering 88 weeks on the charts, peaking at number 13 on Billboard 200 in August 2006, a year after its release.
The band has sold 2.2 million copies of the album in the US since its release.
At the time, the album received much criticism about its lack of originality and creativity but it received some praise from Lauren Gitlin from Rolling Stone, who said,
“What makes Panic different […] is their use of dance-floor synths and Roboto drums, which redeems the album’s whininess.”
A decade after its release came further recognition when Billboard deemed the album “one of the most polarizing albums of our time.”
Vices & Virtues (2011)
By 2011, the band had halved in size after losing band members, Ross, Walker and Wilson.
This album was the band’s third studio album that spent an impressive 13 weeks on the charts, peaking at number 7 on Billboard 2000 a month after its release.
Since its release, 418,000 copies of the album have been sold in the US.
Once again, the album received mixed reviews from critics but generally, comments were more positive compared to the ones they’d received on their first album.
Alternative Press writer Lucy Evans said, “The duo sound absolutely recharged.”
Pray For The Wicked (2018)
By 2015, the band had lost all its members except Urie. Pray For The Wicked is Urie’s second solo project release, following Death of a Bachelor in 2016.
The album is Panic! At The Disco’s sixth studio album, spending a tremendous 92 weeks
on the charts, peaking at number 1 on Billboard 200 a month after its release, making this the band’s second number one album following Death of a Bachelor.
The album has sold 400,000 copies in the US since its release.
The album has received mostly positive reviews, with The Independent dubbing it as “eclectic and coherent.”
Why Did The Band Split?
The band didn’t stay together because other band members wanted to pursue their own musical adventures. It seems like band members might have outgrown each other, seeing as they were a childhood band when originally formed back in 2005.
Today, Panic! At The Disco is Urie’s solo project, with another studio album is well underway.
