The Jonas Brothers have been the topic of interest for the past couple of weeks this October, making article pages right here from their Twitter account being closed, to Joe admitting he'd like to pursue acting, the cancellation of their latest tour, and the obscure tweets that gave us a little hope they might be coming back.
Unfortunately, that won't be the case, at least for now.
The Jonas Brothers have agreed in a unanimous decision to disband without any plans to come back. After a return from a two-year hiatus a little over a year ago, it's safe to say that this is probably the swan song for the young musicians's work together.
"I was feeling kind of trapped," Nick told People. "I needed to share my heart with my brothers." Despite being the impetus, Joe said they were all on the same page when they decided to end it: "It was a unanimous decision."
Nick went on to say that it's hard to say it was a "forever" decision given the long history of performances together, but with Kevin starting a family, Joe setting his sights on acting, and Nick blazing the trail with whatever comes next, it's fairly safe to say that this is more than just "closing a chapter;" it might actually be the end.
Of course, stranger things have happened, and bands so often do come together for reunion tours. Taking Back Sunday after losing Fred Mascherino and recording New Again, the band reunited with its long former stablemates from their first record, and went on to begin touring together and releasing a self-titled studio album that sounded like the refreshing burst of "new" that the band actually needed to make a recovery.
While we don't know what's in store for the Jonas Brothers, we bid you a fond farewell, and thank you for being a part of our alt-rock music scene.
