But the boys seemed to take the turbulence in stride whether it be surprise paternity for Louis Tomlinson, a cheeky parody video from Amy Schumer, or, most shockingly, the departure of band member Zayn Malik.

But after handling all that drama with ease , the remaining members of One Direction are in need of a break.

And, according to People, they’re taking a lengthy one.

Starting in March, the magazine reports, current One Direction members Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Niall Horan will take at least a year off from the band to pursue their own projects.

Hat tip to Vanity Fair for the news.
