The Wanted split up: Boy band announce break
The boy band have announced they are taking time apart after their tour
The Wanted have announced they will be taking time apart to pursue personal projects after their upcoming tour.
The band said they were not splitting for good and would continue to perform as The Wanted, but wanted to take time out to pursue "personal endeavours".
A statement on the their website said: “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.”
It has not yet been confirmed how long their temporary split will last, or what the nature of their “personal endeavours” are.
The band will be touring worldwide with their Word of Mouth Tour from early February, after which they will split for an unspecified amount of time.
The Wanted appeared in their own reality TV series called The Wanted Life in the US last year, which premiered on E! in June 2013.
Their last album Word of Mouth charted at number nine on the Official UK Albums Chart and reached 17th position on US Billboard 200 last year.
