The Jonas Brothers have bid farewell to their fans in a touching goodbye message, days after confirming their break-up.
The three brothers announced on Tuesday (29Oct13) that they are disbanding after creative differences forced them to scrap their tour last month (Oct13), and now they have taken to Facebook.com to thank their loyal followers for their support over the years.
The message, posted online on Friday (01Nov13), reads, "To Our Dear Friends and Fans Around the World, It is with heavy hearts that we confirm that our time as the Jonas Brothers is over. This decision has not come lightly, and we know that many of you will be disappointed. The time has come for us to move forward on individual career paths. We have been a band of brothers for 10 years and are now choosing simply to be brothers. Going forward, you can expect exciting things from each of us, and we will of course continue to support each other in all things.
"We would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported and inspired us through the years, and stood by us in this difficult decision. We feel and appreciate your love. Because you waited so long for new music, we want to honor our Team Jonas fan club members by giving you our final album. This digital-only album contains four new studio recordings that would have appeared on our V album (which will now go unreleased). In addition, we're including 10 live tracks that we feel capture the energy and excitement of this past summer's tour...
"We hope you enjoy this album as much as we've enjoyed performing for you over the last 10 years. It has been an amazing experience. You will always be the best fans in the world. Kevin, Joe & Nick."
The Jonas Brothers were signed as a trio by Columbia Records in 2005 and found fame with Disney movie Camp Rock in 2008, going on to win the Breakthrough Artist title at the American Music Awards later that year.
