Settle down Jonas Brothers fans: Despite rumors to the contrary, the band is not breaking up. “We plan to make music together for as long as we can,” the brothers said in a letter to fans that they shared with PEOPLE.
The speculation started after word spread Nick Jonas, 17, formed a band called Nick Jonas & the Administration and intensified since Kevin, 21, is getting married. But to clear things up, the band wrote a letter to their fans just before taking the stage in Venezuela, where they are performing as part of a world tour.
“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 writes of Nick Jonas & the Administration, which is releasing an album next year. “My brothers are my biggest supporters, and were on the phone with me everyday while I was in the studio asking how it was going, and telling me they couldn’t wait to hear the record.”
