What are we going to do now? I don't want to live in this world anymore.
The Jonas Brothers have officially pulled the plug on their family band.
Weeks after canceling their 19-city tour in early October, the trio confirmed to People magazine that they have "unanimously" agreed to call it quits. "It's over for now," Kevin Jonas, 25, told the magazine.
Initial reports suggested the brothers were fighting, and that Joe Jonas, 24, had an issue with substance abuse — but both claims appear to be false.
Instead, the brothers are on good terms, and are working on solo projects.
The ‘unanimous’ decision came after the trio met earlier this month, they told People magazine.
"Nick and the Administration are working on another album," a source previously told People.
The gang of New Jersey-born brothers formed their band in 2005, and rose to fame as a Disney Channel-affiliated group. Going on to worldwide success, and even a Grammy nomination, they became known as individual celebrities. Nick Jonas released a solo album, while Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle, became reality stars with their E! show, “Married to Jonas.”
The group formed in 2005 and rose to fame as a part of several Disney Channel movies and TV shows.
Evidence of the band's demise came in early October, after they deleted the group’s Twitter page, though their individual accounts remain active.
"Please hold while we get our s--t together," Joe Jonas tweeted on Oct. 22, when news of a potential split broke.
The decision to break up apparently came after Nick Jonas, 21, expressed his concerns during a meeting, People reports. The Grammy-nominated group denied rumors of Joe Jonas (center) having a substance abuse problem that caused their rift. Instead, the brothers are said to be focusing on solo projects.

"I was feeling kind of trapped," he said. "I needed to share my heart with my brothers." "It's really hard to say 'forever,'" the youngest of the trio added. "We're closing a chapter, for sure."
