Jonas Brothers disband, say "it's over for now"
Pop-rock superstars the Jonas Brothers are no more, revealing Tuesday (10/29) that they're disbanding just a couple weeks after canceling a tour over creative differences.
Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas unanimously agreed to the breakup, according to comments made to People magazine.
"It's over for now," Kevin said, while Nick stated, "It's really hard to say 'forever.' We're closing a chapter, for sure."
The tour cancellation came a little more than a week after an Oct. 3 meeting in which Nick aired concern about the direction of the band.
"I was feeling kind of trapped," Nick said. "I needed to share my heart with my brothers."
The brothers began in 2005, signing with Columbia Records and releasing their debut effort, "It's About Time," a year later. In 2007, the trio made the move to Hollywood Records, unveiling an eponymous collection that landed at No. 5 on The Billboard 200. Since that time, two more records have dropped, most recently 2009's chart-topping "Lines, Vines and Trying Times."
The Jonas Brothers have been preparing for the release of "V," including the release of two singles: "Pom Poms" and "First Time." The collection was said to hit retailers in 2013, though no official date was ever announced. No word yet on how the release may be affected by the disbandment.
