One Direction Fans might be mourning an early death of the hottest boy band in the UK, after Liam Payne announced he signed to Capitol UK.

Payne took to Twitter to share the news and many fans weren’t afraid to share their distress and hashtag #OneDirectionisOverParty

The group did say they’d be on hiatus for this year, as they all pursue different opportunities. Zayn Malik was the first to leave the boyband and his single Pillowtalk skyrocketed to No.1 on Hot 100. Likewise, Louis Tomlinson is a new dad and judge on America’s Got Talent.
