The Wanted may be known mostly for picking fights with One Direction and their one-hit song, “Glad You Came” (okay fine two-hit wonder if you count “All Time Low”), but the boy band have just revealed that they are going to be calling it a day.
The group released a joint statement revealing their plans to pull the curtains on the group after their current tour is over. The full statement on all members’ behalf was posted on their website, TheWantedMusic.com and can currently be read below.
“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.”
The Wanted’s Word of Mouth tour is set t wrap up on May 17 at The Arena in Shawnee, OK.
