Yesterday we received the sad news that we all kind of saw coming – the Jonas Brothers were calling it quits. While the only explanation we got was it was a “unanimous decision” and that they were “closing a chapter,” fans around the world were still left wondering where this sudden decision came from.

And clearly the three brothers felt that they owed a more detailed explanation and appeared on Good Morning America to give it to Robin Roberts.

While some may have suspected the absolute worse at the reason behind the split, according to Nick, it really was all about the music. “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… and shared my heart with them and my feelings,” he said.

“It was just individual things that we were just butting heads about, whether it was the way to set up the music video or even just personal opportunities,” Joe added. “At some point we decided it was best to finish this and support each other on our own ventures along the way.”

This was supposed to be the JoBros’ come back year, especially with the release of new music. But don’t worry – the guys will be releasing four brand new songs from the unfinished album as a thank you to the fans.
