The Irish boyband HomeTown have officially announced their split on social media. After being formed in 2014 they have now decided to take their own separate directions. A post was released on Facebook on the 7th December to let fans know what was going on.
They also shared their own messages across Instagram and Twitter to thank fans;
??Thank you ??

“We had the best time. From hysterical laughter and incredibly fun times to tears and frustration. We’ve seen it all. It’s gonna be tough to come to terms for many people but now you have 6 separate journeys to look forward to. Whatever route each of us decides to take. Thank you.”
“To everyone who has supported us and I mean absolutely everyone, a massive thank you for making these last 2 and a half years the best of my life. I’ve made amazing friends along the way and have learnt who’s really there for you when you need it most. HomeTown will always hold a special place in my heart but now I’m onto another new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to it being just as great as the last one was… another door opens.”
“Seriously couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of brothers to share all the experiences with! Literally the boys were the only ones who ever accepted my ridiculous weirdness and just insane personality! I have done so much with these lads, they really have made my life an amazing one!”
“The best, craziest, biggest chapter of my life comes to a close. I’ll miss the six of us practicing for hours in each other’s kitchens, the shows around the country, trips around the world, the horrendously early mornings, the amazing long nights, the little spats and the huge laughs, the private jokes, the weird voices, the tears, the tantrums and total mayhem that was our band. Thank you everyone for making our lives what they are today, I’ll never forget it.”
“It’s been one hell of a ride! A massive thank you to everyone who has supported us in the last 3 years, We’ve had our ups and downs along the way but as a band we still remain the best of friends and look forward to supporting each other in whatever we go on to do for the future, On to the next chapter.”
The boys were due to play in Donegal on the 30th December which has now been cancelled. Everyone who bought tickets will be given a refund.
Our gig on the 30th in Donegal won't be happening. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please refrain from buying tickets. ??
