LONDON — Members of One Direction have confirmed the band is taking a break, but are reassuring worried fans that it won’t be permanent.

Niall Horan tweeted that “we are not splitting up,” while Louis Tomlinson posted “it’s just a break … Promise.” Liam Payne tweeted Tuesday that “there’s so much more to come.”

The Sun newspaper reported Monday that the four band members will go their separate ways for at least a year after finishing a tour this autumn and promoting their fifth album.

One Direction formed in 2010 after five teenagers — Horan, Tomlinson, Payne, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik — auditioned individually for British TV talent show “The X Factor.” Entertainment mogul Simon Cowell put them together as a boy band.
