Jonas Brothers on split: We’re “brothers first”
But not a band: They won't release their forthcoming album as planned.
JoBros on GMA
The Jonas Brothers dropped the bomb yesterday that they were breaking up the band, and the trio went on Good Morning America this morning for an exclusive interview with Robin Roberts to explain what precipitated the split.
It was the youngest of the brothers, Nick Jonas, who apparently initiated the conversation among the group.
“It was a tough conversation. Not going to lie,” he said. “It was the first time we really had that real conversation that was a few days of working through it. But now, we’ve all come to a place, after a lot of time, thinking about it, and talking about it together, where we feel like we’re best suited to do our own individual things. All things we’re passionate about. And choose to be brothers first.”
The brothers also dropped the piece of news that V, the album they were currently working on, won’t be released. Two tracks from the album, “Pom Poms” and “First Time,” have already been released, and the brothers said they will put out four other unreleased songs from the album, but it won’t be released in full.
As expected, they also didn’t close the door on reuniting — they are brothers, after all.
“It’s impossible to say forever,” Nick said.
