It's been over one year since IM5 confirmed their breakup, and you might be wondering what the boy band members are doing now. Towards the end of 2015, the band stopped posting on their social media accounts, which felt extremely ominous in the wake of Will Jay leaving the group earlier that year. Then, after months of speculation, Dana Vaughns shared the heartbreaking news with 5ers (in a since-removed YouTube video on February 21, 2016) that the band was over. With that, Dana, Cole Pendery and Gabe Morales officially parted ways.
After sticking it out for so long, it was hard to believe that IM5 really did break up. But there's no question that the group experienced major band turmoil over the years. In March 2014, Dalton Rapattoni left IM5 to join Fly Away Hero. Singer David Scarzone joined in his place but left after six months. By the time Will Jay announced he was going to pursue his own solo projects, there were only three members left in IM5.
Although the boy band now exists only in our memories, the guys are all working on solo projects — and they've grown up a lot since IM5 formed in 2012, as you can imagine.
