The group will still release their fifth album, so fans get to enjoy that. Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan will promote their new album through February 2016.
Starting in March, they’ll take time off to pursue their own project. This means that there won’t be a tour to support their fifth album next summer, unfortunately. One Direction has always said it planned to model itself after the Rolling Stones, where they take breaks to pursue solo projects before coming back together. The Black Eyed Peas do that too. It’ll be interesting to see what each of the guys does alone and then what they do when they come back together.
