Band JLS to end their five-year journey

London, April 24 (IANS) Members of British band JLS have decided to split and they will end their five-year-old musical journey on a happy note.

Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan JB Gill and Oritse Williams rose to fame after becoming runners-up in the fifth season of Britain’s reality show “The X Factor” in 2008.

“It’s just that time. We are still best of friends and always will be but this is the end,” quoted Merrygold as saying.

The band does not wish to overdo their presence in the music world.

“It’s an emotional time. There’s no getting away from that. We have been through so much together. But we have to be mature and look at this decision as a celebration of what we managed to achieve. We never wanted to overstay our welcome,” Humes said.

The band will end the journey in December with a farewell tour and an album.

“We never wanted to be that band where people said, ‘Oh, bloody hell. It’s JLS again.’ We wanted to finish on a high. We’re finishing with an arena tour, our third arena tour, and that is a massive achievement,” he added.
