The Wanted Decide to Take a Break After Upcoming Tour
Posted on January 22, 2014
The Wanted, a British-Irish boy band, is taking a break to pursue personal endeavors after their upcoming Word of Mouth tour, which concludes on May 17. The Wanted shared a message on their website talking about the release of the "Glow in the Dark" single and music video.
The article also breaks the sad news that the band is taking a break. It says, "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."
Some media outlets, such as TMZ, are taken the message to mean the band is permanently over. TMZ writes, "The statement goes on to say that 'The Wanted' will continue to exist ... just not actively ... which is management speak for 'That's all, folks!'"
Billboard reports that the band was much bigger in the U.K. than in the U.S. The band's last album, Word of Mouth, was released in November 2013.
