After confirming their split this week in People magazine and on ABC's Good Morning America, The Jonas Brothers took to Facebook on Friday to deliver a heartfelt letter to their fans.
"It is with heavy hearts that we confirm that our time as the Jonas Brothers is over," the group wrote. "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."
Nick, Joe and Kevin added that for now, they are "choosing simply to be brothers," saying, "You can expect exciting things from each of us, and we will of course continue to support each other in all things."
The brothers said that they wanted to say thank you to everyone has supported them over the years, adding, "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."
As previously reported, that album will feature four new studio recordings, originally meant for their fifth disc, which will now never see the light of day, as well as 10 recorded during the group's tour this past summer. "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," the brothers conclude. "You will always be the best fans in the world."
