One Direction Gives First Interview Since Zayn Malik's Departure

Looks like One Direction are definitely moving on without Zayn Malik.

The now four-piece band — Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne — gave their first group interview to The Sun (via E!) after Zayn‘s departure from the band late last month.

“It’s been a tough few weeks, probably the toughest since the band was formed five years ago,” Liam shared with the UK-based paper. “We’re gutted that Zayn chose to leave, but now after a few performances as a four piece, we’re feeling confident and are determined to carry on stronger than ever.”

Louis added, “All four of us are 100 per cent committed to staying in One Direction and we want to thank the fans for being so incredible during this time. We have so much more we still want to achieve. Our gigs in South Africa were some of the biggest the country has ever seen, so it’s exciting for us to keep breaking records for British music worldwide.”

Harry added about moving on with their next album, “It’s very exciting to be working on our fifth album. It shows how incredible the fans have been. A huge thank you to them for everything they’ve done for us. All the love to them.”
