Oh no, could it really be true? While rumours and speculation of a Jonas Brothers break-up have been flying ever since the band cancelled their forthcoming North American tour, news that the group had deleted their official Twitter account have dashed fans’ hopes for good.

An official representative of the band spoke last week to explain why the Jo-Bros had cancelled their plans and press push, saying “There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big disagreement over their music direction.”; But new singles like “Pom Poms’ ¬†and “First Time’ sound like a positive step in the right direction, not a leap back.

While we are currently tweeting into a void just waiting for our beloved band of brothers to give us a sign – anything! Please Nick, Kevin or Joe! – we haven’t taken off our purity rings just yet. Here’s hoping that they can get back together just in time for the release of a new record.
