If any of us grew up listening to the bands that defined the 2000-2010 decade, no one can forget the “Kings” of the era… Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco. While the bands are still booming and as popular as ever today, there is always a little nostalgia to go back to the early days… when Pete Wentz signed a young Panic! At The Disco to his small indie label, Decay Dance.
Now, it seems a little bittersweet that this is coming full circle. Pete Wentz revived his label officially back in 2014, but not much work was done in signing new artists or bands. Wentz tweeted to his followers today the news and expanded on the growth and future of the label stating, “Decay Dance was always about finding like-minded creative people and magnifying their vision.”
Adding ex-PATD! member Spencer Smith was icing on the cake for many longtime fans of the label and the two musicians.
By relaunching the record label, both Wentz and Smith hope to give fellow artists the hope that they received. Smith responded to the partnership announcement with the nice sentiment stating via Twitter, “I am so excited to be back with the label that took a chance on me and my band years ago.”
