Not today, Satan, not today. It’s never fun to come back to awful news after a long weekend, but that’s exactly what happened this morning when Niall Horan’s interview with The Irish Sun surfaced. Basically, without saying it but saying everything we need to know, Nialler revealed One Direction probably won’t reunite for years. Yes, YEARS.

Of course, the boys all have a lot going on right now. Literally, every single one of them is killing the solo artist game and it doesn’t seem like they are looking back. Niall just started his Flicker Sessions, which if you have been living under a rock, are smaller gigs at much tinier venues than he’s used to. But he wants a massive tour – next year.

He said, “This was called the Flicker Sessions for that reason. I love going to gigs and I love live music myself so playing the album to the fans was something I wanted to do. I called it the Sessions as it gave off the idea that is exactly what I was doing. The Olympia was class, I’ve always wanted to play it, I’ve been to a lot of gigs there myself but the idea would be to stretch it out and go take it to the next step, if I can sell it out.”

He continued, “I’m not going to walk up to my team and say ‘listen get the 3Arena for me, I know I’m going to sell it out.'” To be honest, we don’t think he’s going to have any problem selling out big venues but when he does, that’s not a great sign for Directioners. This whole thing isn’t a good sign for Directioners who were so desperately hoping the boys would return after a year or two on hiatus.

One Direction officially went on this break in January 2016. It will be two years without the boys all together in four short months. But two years isn’t anything to Niall in the grand scheme of things, which leads us to believe that it could be a very long time until One Direction really comes back strong.

He said, “It’s only been two years, or less than two years [since we took a break]. It’s like two years in my life. I’m hoping to live a long life, so two years out of it is not a very long time neither is three or neither is four. We have to just wait until everyone’s ready to go again, we’ll go again. It’d be nice to think that we stopped at a high point, it’d be nice to pick up from there.”

Sigh. We’ll just be over here decaying, getting older, literally turning to a pile of bones waiting for this reunion to happen. When they finally decide to leave their solo careers behind, we’ll be here – no matter how old we may get.
