Jonas Brothers announce their first new album in ten years ‘Happiness Begins’

Can you believe it’s been ten years since the Jonas Brothers dropped their last studio album? Well, it looks like things are about to change for the group and their dedicated fan base. On Monday (April 22), the trio announced plans to release their fifth studio album later this summer.

Titled Happiness Begins, the new studio effort is due out June 7. Pre-orders for the new record have yet to be released, but you can join their mailing list on their website for upcoming news and updates.

“After seven years of not working together, living life, and finding ourselves in our own paths we came back to give you our journey in album form,” eldest brother Kevin Jonas wrote on Instagram.

“I’m so excited for you to hear Happiness Begins out June 7th. I have to say out of all the albums we have done together I’m the most proud of this one. I wish I could hand it to you now but you will just have to wait a little bit longer.”

Though they have yet to release a tracklist for the forthcoming album, we can assume that hit singles “Sucker” and “Cool” will be featured on the record.

Happiness Begins is the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times. Following the record’s release, the threesome decided to take a break from the band (and each other) due to some deep rifts.

During the hiatus, Nick Jonas went on to cement himself as a successful solo artist and actor while Joe Jonas has been successfully leading dance-funk outfit DNCE.

Ahead of the album’s early June release, the Jonas Brothers will perform at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1 and appear on Saturday Night Live as the musical guests on May 11 (Emma Thompson will be hosting so it should be good).

Jonas Brothers Call It a Day

JonasBrothers

Well, Jonas Brothers fans, we are sad to report that the brother band have officially called it quits.

Tensions had been brewing for the last month between the three members, but things look like it took a turn for the worse with the brothers officially calling it a day.

Originally, the brothers were supposed to head out on a new tour a few weeks back. Two days before the first tour stop, they cancelled the entire thing. At the time, there was no word on what caused the cancellation, but fans were assured it had nothing to do with older brother, Kevin’s wife being pregnant.

Later, it was revealed through their manager that there was a “deep rift” between the band concerning the direction that their new music would go.

Then, in a move that stunned a lot of fans and casual listeners, their Twitter account had been deactivated, fueling more rumors of the end was near for them. Last week, both Nick and Joe had both tweeted messages asking fans to give them some time, (Joe went with more of the let us get our s–t together approach).

Now, the end had finally fallen on the band as they revealed to People Magazine, who broke the initial story, that they have indeed disbanded.

“It’s over for now,” said Kevin to People.

“It was a unanimous decision,” added Joe.

Nick followed it up by saying, “It’s really hard to say ‘forever,’ we’re closing a chapter, for sure.”

The magazine also reported that things came to a head while they were in a business meeting on October 3. Nick voiced his concern about the direction that the band was going and their future.

“I was feeling kind of trapped; I needed to share my heart with my brothers.” he said.

For those not familiar, the band all started because of Nick who was already a Broadway performer by the time he was 7. He was shopping around demos at that time which featured his brothers on it.

But while Nick might have been the brains behind calling it a day, things had been spiraling out of control. Recently, rumors also began that middle brother, Joe, might be battling some of his own demon when he was seen hanging out with renowned addiction specialist Mike Bayer.

One question does remain, what’s going to happen to the Bonus Jonas?

Jonas Brothers to Head Out on Tour

Looks like the Disney darlings are heading back on the tour circuit after taking sometime off to do separate things for a while.

Last week, the boys’ lyrics video for their first new song in several years made its rounds on the internet. Officially, the song, “Pom Poms” was supposed to be released today, but we all know how the world of modern technology works when it’s faced with sneaky, stealthy, eager fans.

To commemorate their return to the world of music, Kevin, Joe and Nick made an appearance on On-Air with Ryan Seacrest, not only to perform but to also announced that they will be heading out on a tour this summer.
