It's curtains for The Wanted after their upcoming tour -- the boy band just announced they're breaking up as soon as it's over.

The group just released a statement, saying, "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."

Sources close to the group say Max and Nathan have already started solo projects ... and we're told Nathan decided he wanted out after collaborating with Ariana Grande on "Almost Is Never Enough."

The Wanted formed in 2009 and released their debut album in 2010, which included hits like "Glad You Came" and "All Time Low." Their upcoming Word of Mouth tour is set to wrap in May.

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!"

So we gotta ask ...

Let's hope One Direction is next. Then again, Simon Cowl won't allow that. Too much money to be made right now.

"take time to pursue personal endeavours" Translation: the popular guy gets a bit of a career on his own (If he's lucky) while the other ones fade into obscurity.

Kind of expected this. Ever since their feud with One Direction ended they became less relevant. They stopped putting out music and took a "break" to do a failed realty tv series. Basically they have officially lost One Direction, which is sad because they're edgier than one D and had more of a personality.

I guess this is a sign that the British-Irish invasion is coming to a close. Now that I think about it, aside from Liam and Harry most of One Direction isn't as relevant either. Maybe they're next.
