Listen to One Direction on iHeartRadio

One Direction still has dozens of stops left of their world tour, but apparently the boys are in need of a breather.  A source tells the "Daily Star" that the group has asked their management company for some time off after their tour officially wraps up at the end of October.  .

Harry, Zayn, Niall, Liam and Louis are reportedly "in desperate need" of some relaxation, and have requested to take off a full four months at the end of 2013 to re-group after 118 tour dates.  But the source says the group's management is eager to continue their pop music domination and put out another album, ideally in time for Christmas.  

The boys still have a way to go before they can even think about vacation time.  They bring their tour to the U.S. starting June 13th and their concert documentary "This Is Us" premieres on August 30th.
