The Wanted are closing this chapter of their career, and to they’re saying goodbye in the form of a farewell video.
Before they go on hiatus in May, the boy band dropped their video for “Glow in the Dark,” a single off Word of Mouth, as a way to say thank you to TWFanmily who have supported them over the past five years.
Over the EDM-tinged track fans, the boys look back at some of their favorite highlights over the course of their career, from early footage to behind-the-scenes moments of “The Wanted Life,” to flying around the world and playing to sold-out crowds.
But it wouldn’t be a Wanted video without showing off some crazy antics. The fivesome are seen jumping in pools, swimming with sharks and posing in their underwear, reminding fans of all what they’re going to miss when they officially say their goodbyes…for now.
Glad you're all loving the video as much as us. So many amazing memories, thanks to each & everyone of you #GlowInTheDarkVideo

Back in January, The Wanted announced that after their Word of Mouth tour, which wraps up on May 17, they will be going on hiatus.
“This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavors following the tour’s conclusion,” the band said in a statement. “The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects together in the future. They thank their fans for their continued love and support and look forward to seeing them on tour.”
