On the same day their mom broke the news that [article id="1624924"]Nick Jonas had recorded a solo album[/article], the [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brothers[/artist] took to their MySpace page to assure their fans that Nick is still part of the group.
In a blog post titled "WE ARE NOT BREAKING UP," the guys enumerated facts about what Nick's side project means for the brothers. "#1 The Jonas Brothers are NOT breaking up! #2 Nick Jonas IS working on a side project called Nick Jonas & The Administration," they wrote. "#3 This project will be released early in 2010. #4 We are ALL excited about this project AND what we are doing TOGETHER! #5 We plan to make music together for as long as we can."
Nick then shared details about the project that he worked on six months ago in Nashville with four musicians he had worked with in the past. Presumably the band's name stems from Nick's nickname, Mr. President. "If I was to describe the sound to someone ... I would say it's 'heart & soul,' because the music that I make is from my heart, and the lyrics I write are from my soul," he wrote, after explaining that he recorded the album during a two-week break from touring. "We've said from the beginning of our career as the Jonas Brothers that anything we do outside of the group is a side project because you can't break up brothers."
Nick assured fans that they'll see plenty more JoBro action in the future. "We are already planning another world tour AS THE JONAS BROTHERS next summer, and it is all thanks to our amazing fans," he said.
In the post, Kevin and Joe also put their two cents in about rumors of the impending end of the band. "We are so proud of our brother Nick," reads the statement from both of them. "We know that we will be doing music together for the rest of our lives. But we are thrilled for you to hear these songs that were on his heart. They are amazing works of art from an amazing talent ... our brother. We will see you later this year, next year, and hopefully for the rest of our lives."
