Jonas Brothers Are Going To 'Do It Right' This Time Around
The Jonas Brothers are determined to make the band work this time around.
Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas made an appearance on CBS Sunday Morning on Sunday and opened up about their reunion and the future for the band.
"Yeah, we got a do-over, and I think this time around we’re gonna do it right," Joe said. "There’s not gonna be secrets between us. There’s not gonna be second-guessing. We’re not gonna be sitting around trying to call it off. We’re gonna just keep this thing going."
When asked about making the choice to take a step back from the Jonas Brothers in 2013, Nick shares that he’s the one who suggested they dissolve their creative partnership for the time being to pursue new projects. He recalled the state of mind he and his brothers found themselves in when they made that difficult decision, and talked about the impact it had on their family ties as well:
"To call it creative differences is almost too simple. I think a lot of people lost the appetite for what we were putting into the world. We were putting up shows that weren’t selling. We were making music that I don’t think we were all super proud of, and it wasn’t connecting. On top of all that, the root of all these real issues was our relationship was becoming strained."
"I had a very tough conversation with them where I laid it out for them," Nick continued. "I said, ‘I feel like the Jonas Brothers should be no more, and we should go on individual journeys.’ Didn’t go so well."
Joe adds that he "absolutely" thought the Jonas Brothers were finished by that point, and says that he was "checked out in my mind – that was it. There was going to be no more brothers, ever." Nick was sure of that, too. "I feared that they would never speak to me again. For real. It took a couple months of tricky conversations and navigating all that for us to be able to reconnect, just as family again."
As for their upcoming tour, the guys dished on how it’s going to be now that they’re all married.
"We don’t know," Nick said. "That’s the best part about it."
"But, it’s gonna be fun!" Kevin added.
