Who is The Wanted signed to? The Wanted is a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes. They formed in 2009 and were signed worldwide to Universal Music subsidiaries Island Records and Mercury Records, and managed by Scooter Braun.
Why did Nathan leave The Wanted? The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes has been forced to leave the band for surgery on to try and save his voice. The 19 year-old boyband star is said to be suffering from a ‘haemorrhaging vocal cord’ – the same condition that threatened to wreck singer Adele’s career – and will undergo an operation on Thursday.
What does Nathan Sykes do now? Nathan dropped his first solo single, “More Than You’ll Ever Know,” in March 2015. Later that year, he went on a solo tour and has since opened for both Little Mix and Alessia Cara. In 2016, Nathan released his first-ever solo record Unfinished Business.
Why did the band The Wanted break up? In a telling 2014 interview, Max, 31, revealed the real reason behind their break was due to growing tensions after he and Nathan, 27, pushed for a hiatus. But Tom, 31, Siva, also 31, and Jay, 29 disagreed fiercely. He told the Sun on Sunday: “There has been a lot of tension. Our personal lives drove us apart.”
