Irish boyband, Hometown, have announced that they are taking a break from music.
The band, who were formed in 2014 by Louis Walsh, released a statement to say that due to circumstances "out of their control" they have decided to pursue individual interests.
In a Facebook post on the band's page, it read: “A message for our fans… Hi guys, first of all we want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all the support over the last 3 years.
“We have done some amazing things, from number one singles to sold out shows, trips around the world and so much more, and it’s all down to the support you have all shown us.
“We regret to say that at this point in our career we have decided to take a break and pursue our own thing individually.
“We hope you all understand that it is not a decision we have taken lightly but due to many things out of our control it is the best thing for us at this moment in time.
“We can’t express enough how much we appreciate everything you’ve done for us, our lives have changed so much and we can’t wait to take you on our individual journeys.
“As a band we remain the best of friends and look forward to supporting each other in whatever we go on to do.
“Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and again, we hope you understand. Lots of love, Brendan, Cian, Dayl, Dean, Josh and Ryan.”
