Former Boy Band The Wanted Talk About A Possible Reunion

Former Boy Band The Wanted Talk About A Possible Reunion

The Wanted disbanded in 2014 and there have been little talks of a reunion ever since.

In a new interview with Billboard, the guys – Nathan Sykes, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Jay McGuiness – open up on if that’s actually possible.

Spoiler: it is, but without Nathan.

“I think in terms of doing more as The Wanted in the future… personally speaking, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been as an artist at this time in my life,” Nathan shares. “So it isn’t something that I would consider, but I’ve heard through the grapevine that the other four have talked about it.”

While not really wanting to get back together with the band, Nathan does say that he’d still be front row if and when they do perform together again.

“I’d go to the gigs, I’d be singing along, and I would love nothing more than if the four boys want to do that,” Nathan says. “I think that would be absolutely amazing. But just at the moment, I think I’ve found my place as an artist, and I think to kind of go back on that would be changing my path very abruptly.”

He continues, “That doesn’t mean to say that I’m not massively grateful for everything that happened with The Wanted, and it doesn’t change how I look back at the band or my fondness of the band or the fans. It just means that I’m on a path and to change that would be very abrupt.”

Tom and Max are in a never say never type of mood about it.

“Whenever we talk, we always kind of come back ‘round to [The Wanted], even if it’s just for 10 seconds, like, ‘Boy I’d like to do it again, wouldn’t you?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah I would.,’” Max says about his phone conversations with Tom.

He adds, “I’d be completely open to it, because I absolutely adore the boys, and why not. I’d love to experience that again — even if I am a few years older.”
