The Wanted To Go On Hiatus After Tour

After getting together in 2009, The Wanted are taking a break. The British boy band announced today (January 22) that they’ll be going on hiatus after their Word Of Mouth tour concludes. The news came tacked onto a post about the release of their “Glow In The Dark” video, and the silver lining for fans is that it’s being framed only as a break, not a breakup.

“This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour’s conclusion,” the statement read. “The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects together in the future.”

It’s only temporary, but it would appear Directioners chose the winning side in the Great British Boy Band Battle Of The 2010s. We just ask that 1D fans show some respect to the mourners during this time of grief.

See The Wanted’s full announcement below, or head to their official site.

The Wanted are pleased to announce the release of their new video and single ‘Glow In The Dark’ taken from their November release ‘Word of Mouth’. They are very excited to perform ‘Glow In The Dark’ along with their smash singles ‘I Found You’, ‘Chasing The Sun’, and ‘Glad You Came’, amongst others for their fans on their upcoming Word of Mouth Tour.

This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour’s conclusion. The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects together in the future. They thank their fans for their continued love and support and look forward to seeing them on tour.”

    I’m not surprised at all about this. they had one hit here in the U.S. their album went really nowhere. they were like the O-Town/LFO/BBMak of this generation except those bands were actually slightly more successful. Not to say the band has absolutely no fans, but their sales speak loudly.
