The Jonas Brothers have made it official: Their music-making days as a trio are over. Word of the split broke October 29, with the boys stopping by Good Morning America the next day to discuss what the news means for themselves and their fans.
“I think it was time,” Kevin starts off. “We feel like it’s time that Jonas Brothers come to an end.”
Divided over the music planned for their fifth album, V, the brothers Jones were at odds on where to go next. That’s when youngest member Nick stepped in.
“I was actually the one who initiated the conversation,” he says, prompting screams of rage/pain/agony from fans around the world. “We’re family first and that’s always been our main priority, so honesty within what we do as a group was really important.”
Right before the brothers were set to leave on their tour, Kevin said he “shared my heart” with his fellow bandmates about where he saw their act going. “I said, ‘Look, we’ve had some complications within the group for a long time without addressing them. I think this train will fall of the tracks without really getting real about them.’”
From that “tough” and “real” conversation, the Brothers Jonas have decided to press pause on their work as a group. Instead, they’ll be focusing on individual pursuits. So what’s this mean for their scheduled album?
“It actually won’t be completed,” Kevin says, before quickly adding that four singles from the record will be released as will a compilation of their summer tour numbers. Consider it a parting gift from the Jonas Bros as they head off into the sunset.
