LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- English-Irish boy band The Wanted says it is breaking up after its concert tour wraps in May because its members want to pursue other projects.

"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 endeavors following the tour's conclusion," a representative for Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes said in a joint statement to TMZ Wednesday.

Known for its hits "Glad You Came" and "All Time Low," the band formed in 2009.
