Guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker left the band in 2009, a year after their sophomore record Pretty. Odd. The two cited creative differences with Brendon ultimately led to their decision to exit the band.

Brendon shared how he struggled after the band's first breakup and what he did to cope up with everything. "The first split that Panic! had, I was very depressed. I sometimes wouldn’t leave my house for weeks." He added, "One of my greatest friends and greatest mentors Rob Mathis, he said “dude, just show up. If you just show up, things will happen- this isn’t about you. Get out of your head.” And I just started showing up to the places that people were asking me to go and great things started happening."

The "High Hopes" singer ended by saying, "You know what matters? People being happy." Check it out below!
