They had their heyday in the 90s and had a short comeback in in 2006 and 2010 despite one member Robbie Williams quitting in 1995 for his solo career.
This year, news sources said that British boy band “Back For Good” Take That will be releasing their latest new album due in November this year even with the absence of Jason Orange who recently declared his decision to leave the band, his words posted in their website on Wednesday.
“At a band meeting last week I confirmed to Mark, Gary and Howard that I do not wish to commit to recording and promoting a new album.
There have been no fallings out, only a decision on my part that I no longer wish to do this” the 44-year old singer wrote in the Take That site.
According to his statement, he started to question his place in the band and whether it is the right time for him to leave since the Progress Tour in 2010.
He further asserted that the decision is his own and it has got nothing to do with the new album which he has full knowledge of.
He further expressed his support for the coming album and expressed gratitude to his fans.
“I know how much Mark, Gary and Howard enjoy writing and making music, and they know that they have my full support and encouragement to continue on with what is to be another chapter for the band.
I have spent some of the best years of my life with Take That and I’d like to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey, including my band mates, who I feel are like brothers to me.
Most especially my gratitude goes to all of the good and kind, beautiful and ever-loyal fans of the band, without whom none of this could have been possible.
Thank you.” The dramatic statement received a reply from the remaining members Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald with them saying that they felt saddened with Orange’s decision.
They further said: “We first became aware of Jason’s reservations a couple of years ago but had hoped that by giving him the desired time and space he may begin to feel differently.
This has not been the case and we now have to accept and fully respect his decision which we know hasn’t been an easy one.
Take That is formed in the 1990 with original members Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams.
Their chart-topping hits include Back For Good, Pray and Relight My Fire.
After an almost two-decade hiatus, the band managed to have a comeback in their 2006 Ultimate Tour and 2010 Progress Tour.
