Last week Niall Horan tweeted that the "most exciting 1D news ever" would be announced today. So what was One Direction's big reveal?
The boys are planning to head out on an epic, worldwide stadium tour next year, and it's named after their upcoming album, Where We Are.
"There will be a new album this year," Louis Tomlinson said during today's press conference. "It's taken a slightly rockier tone."
"We made it a lot more edgier," Liam Payne added.
"It's important the fans and everyone who comes to see the show know it's going to be much bigger with new songs," Harry Styles explained. "A completely different tour."
Judging by their tweets, the rest of the band is just as excited about it as he is!
