It doesn’t sound like The Wanted is following in the footsteps of One Direction.
The Max George-led boy band is taking an indefinite hiatus after their Word of Mouth Tour ends, they announced Wednesday in a statement on their official website.
“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 said. “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.”
Even if the members – who formerly starred on E!’s The Wanted Life – are out of headlines for news as a band, they are likely to still remain in the spotlight, as Siva Kaneswaran just got engaged to Nareesha McCafferey last month, and Nathan Sykes confirmed he was dating Ariana Grande at the end of September.
