Brothers Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas appears on Good Morning America Wednesday to explain why they decided to disband The Jonas Brothers.
“I think it was time,” said Kevin. “We feel like it was time for The Jonas Brothers to come to an end.”
The news of their “break-up” shouldn’t have been so surprising considering the trio failed to release their album V on time, cancelled their tour just days before it was to begin and then deleted their official Twitter account. We still shed a tear anyways.
According to the interview, it was Nick who initiated the conversation about their band troubles: “In a nut shell I said, look, I feel like we’ve had some complications in the group for a long time. We’re not addressing them and I think this train will fall off the tracks without, uh, getting real with some of the concerns and limitations we may feel as individuals and as a group. It was a tough conversation.”
While they may be family first and foremost, the brothers were butting heads professionally over the direction of their band, said Joe. “The music was getting stale.”
As a result, their album V will not be released despite having already released two singles (“Pom Poms” and “First Time”) over the summer. The will, however, release four tracks meant for the album. They will also give their fan club the live tracks from their summer tour as a gift.
“There’s a certain heaviness with closing a chapter,” said Nick. “Understanding that we have the best fans in the world and have for our entire career and we thank them for that. We thank them for understanding this move for us.”
As for a the possibility of a Jonas Brothers reunion, there’s a slim chance it may happen in the future. “I think it’s impossible to say forever with anything,” Nick said.
We’ll be waiting with our fingers cross. For now, we’ll can’t wait to see what each brother has in store for their fans in the future.
