So far, the guys have yet to confirm just how long the break will be, but in a recent interview backstage at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball, Niall Horan talked about touring for their new album, Made In the A.M.
Based on that comment, can we assume that the break won't be that long? Here's hoping, anyway.
Niall commented: "I'm already excited at the thought of coming back and touring this album...I just can't wait to bring them [new songs] to life on the stage."
Oh, and check out Harry Styles' reaction to Niall getting some naughty scarves: "These are not okay."
