One Direction To Go On Hiatus Beginning In March

One-Direction-Hiatus

Prepare to cry yourself to sleep while clutching your vinyl copy of Midnight Memories because the men of One Direction are going on hiatus.

According to a new report from E!, sources close to One Direction claim the group will be taking an extended hiatus beginning in March 2016. The purpose of this break is to allow the individual members of 1D to focus on their various solo albums, as well as projects that lie outside the world of music.

“They are taking a hiatus so they can work on individual projects for a while but they are not splitting up,” a source told E! News. “They will remain together and plan to work together in the future.”

“They are great friends and fully support one another,” our source shared. “They are very aware that they are able to work on their own stuff as well as remain together. This is an exciting time for them creatively and as a group.”

The news of hiatus plans comes just months after the departure of member Zayn Malik spawned a rash of breakup rumors. Malik later signed a record deal to help launch his solo career, which should begin receiving heavy promotion in the months to come.

One Direction are currently on the Honda Civic Tour promoting what will be their fifth (final?) studio album. The group’s latest single, “Drag Me Down,” hit stores earlier this month. When the video premiered online, the demand from fans was so great that Vevo ultimately crashed. To say this group will be missed is an understatement.

The men of One Direction have yet to release an official statement regarding their plans moving forward, but we do expect that to change in the near future. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
