One day after officially announcing they were breaking up, all three Jonas Brothers sat down on Good Morning America today (October 30) to offer fans a more detailed explanation for the split. Nick Jonas admitted on the show that he was the first to propose the idea of ending their time as a band.
"I was actually the one that initiated the conversation," Nick said on GMA. "You know, we're family first and that's always been our main priority and so honesty within what we do as a group was really important. I came to the table with the guys just before we were prepping to leave for tour and I shared my heart with them, my feelings. I think in a nutshell I said, 'Look, I feel like we've had some complications with the new group for a long time without addressing them. I think this train will fall off the tracks without really getting real about some of the concerns and some of the limitations we may feel as individuals.'"
Older brother Joe added that the trio had been disagreeing about a number of things, including the direction of their music, the way to film music videos and "even just personal opportunities." They realized it was time for them to exist as brothers, but no longer as a band. The guys had been prepping the release of their next album, V, but now that album will never see the light of day. However, they will offer some other goodies to thank fans for sticking with them for a long time.
"The album will actually not be completed, but we will be doing something for our fans," Kevin said. "They have traveled with us and been with us for so many years that we did not want to just leave them without giving them back something. So what we've done is we're gonna release four of the unreleased songs from the album. The rest of the album will be never released... we put together the live tracks from last summer tour, about 10 songs, so we'll actually be giving that to our fan club members as a gift."
