In the interview on Free Radio, he basically said the boys are overwhelmed with everyting that’s happened over the past few months and are in desperate need of a break.

“You know, I think everyone needs a little bit of a break now, and a sit down and a stop, to kind of take in all the great things that’ve happened,” Liam explained.

But don’t worry, there’s good news…

As for the rumors that the band will split for good, Liam said, “We won’t be going anywhere for a while, so I don’t know where that’s brewed from.”
