The Wanted Speak Out, Deny Permanent Split!

The boys revealed yesterday they would be taking a break from the band...

The Wantedmay have announced they’re taking a break from the band yesterday, but the boys quickly took to social media to reassure fans that it is just a break, and not a more permanent split.

Tom was one of the first to take to Twitter, posting: “Just want to say...It's a break, not the end. You can't get rid of us that easily haha! X”

Newly-engaged Siva re-iterated his bandmate’s message by adding: “A break is very different to the end.”

“Hey guys, so I know the news today was a big thing, but let me tell you this is not the END,” Max chimed in. “It's the right time for myself and the other boys to have some time to try and achieve other things in our lives and careers.”

And this morning, Nathan posted a statement on Instragram, saying: “Thank you to everyone for all of your lovely messages. We have had the most fun and every moment is down to you guys!”

“However, I must take this moment to say that nobody is to blame for any decision we have come to and we are so grateful to everyone who has helped us along the way.” 

“I can’t wait for the tour to celebrate everything The Wanted has achieved and to see you all in the future!!”
