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 ...

They can't break up!! The have so many loving fans!! We ( TWFanmily) supported them through thick & thin and this is, to me, is so devastating. I just hope they get back together soon or even better, don't break up because TWFanmily, or most of us, have been there since the beginning and don't care what the "bielievers" or the "directioners" say!! This can't be happening!!!

For all you people saying you don't care and are talking bad about the band need to know there are a lot of The Wanted fans in the world who Love The Wanted and are upset that their Favorite band is breaking up...If you've never heard of them then why comment and go look up their songs...For all you who dont care why comment and bad mouth the bad because their fans care if they break up,some of their fans will be heartbroken if they break up because The Wanted is their favorite band...How would you like it if your all time favorite band was breaking up and people commented "oh who cares" and "yawn" and "who are they".. wouldn't you be upset to?

P.s. The Wanted is a British Boy Band that mean a lot to their fans ...
