Jonas Brothers ‘Slipping Into Obscurity’?

jonasbrothersalexa


Jonas Brothers, in stride with the cancellation of their show JONAS, are slowly slipping into obscurity, according to Tommy2.Net: How did they lose the interest of their worldwide fanbase? Was it the music? A little, in reality the guys haven’t had any radio success since Burnin’ Up hit the airwaves in 2008 and solidified them as a household name. In addition, Disney Channel and Radio Disney has

overexposed them. The Jonas Brothers worldwide fanbase has one dream in common, going on a date and for some, getting married to a Jonas Brothers. However, ever since day one we’ve heard about romances that have gone sour.. including AJ Michalka, Demi Lovato, Malese Jow, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and

Zoe Myers to name a few. Since Demi Lovato’s departure from the tour, there hasn’t been one tweet from the personal accounts of Joe, Kevin, or Nick. It’s important to support, encourage, and love your friend Demi Lovato. Read the full article HERE! Do YOU think that Jonas Brothers are fading now?

    You know when you really think of it, they never got much radio airplay other than Burnin’ Up and Paranoid… well here, at least.

    Oh, Canada! I should’ve said that. We don’t get Radio Disney, maybe that’s why.

  • jerseygirl

    Every artist has a peak year. Theirs was in 2008. They won’t see that kind of popularity again, IDT. But as long as they continue to put out good music, they’ll keep their loyal fanbase and be just fine.

    And I have no idea WTF that comment about any of the JB not tweeting to Demi since she went in rehhab has to do with this story. They know what her real issues are & they, along w/everyone else on that tour, wants to distance themselves from her, I’m sure.

  • iamthe0cean

    They’re getting older. That’s quite possibly the main reason.

  • sophieee

    they need to make a new album…

    “But in the end, what it comes down to is there’s too much miscommunication between jonas group and the fans. The fans want them to be more personable yet they insist on sticking with the same formula of PR-approved bullshit. They also became quite the bag of famewhores by using their romances for shameless self-promotion but being ~vague~ about who they’re dating to keep public interest.”

  • FrancyJonasGomez

    I’m a fan, and yes they’re not as famous, but i’m still here :P

  • MistressJonas

    The main reasons why it seems like they’re fading are because of 2 things…1. NO NEW MUSIC. No. I don’t care about the Jonas LA crap (even though I do like some songs from that album) 2.Justin Bieber…he took away the little girls that JB had as fans. Therefore,he became the new “craze” . JB still has a lot of fans though. Which is good of course.

  • iamthe0cean

    If they made a new album, and stopped with all this side project crap, the fan base will increase. IMO

  • w

    “I do think Joe’s breakup with Taylor caused them to lose a lot of fans though, since they shared a large majority of the same target audience and Joe was labeled the “villain” (even though I think Taylor showcased her fair share of crazy). I think that situation in addition to Nick’s back and forth between Miley and Selena caused them to start becoming more known for their love lives and less for their music. Also them spreading themselves across tv, movies, and music didn’t help them. They should have focused on one craft and made it great, instead of producing mediocrity in all three.”

    IA with this too.

    yeah, same here. im from england and never heard them on the radio. but to be honest, radio play doesn’t mean anything here when you’re from america, because they still managed to play 4 venues of about 15,000 people last year.

    I went to 3 shows this summer. I found the environment pretty normal. I was greatful though for the lack of 12 yesr olds. It was nice to see girls my age there haha. But it wasn’t like there were NO people at the show. Please. There were a lot..as usual. AND I think all of their shows in South America sold out.

    I don’t think they’ll come to Europe. I completely gave up hope.

    I find it completely disrespectful and unprofessional how the Jonas Group is treating the European fans though. They completely ignore us. They didn’t give us any information at all.

    I went to one show, it was pretty full if it wasn’t sold out. Plus I was able to talk to older girls, that are my age. I’d say it’s an improvement from hearing 11 year olds scream.

    tbh though this article has some truth. if they came here on the camp rock tour they wouldn’t sell out 20,000 seats again. i think they’re gotta get a new cd out before they go over seas otherwise they’re gonna fail.

  • mileysucks

    ur retarded

  • glowpop

    I kind of agree, they haven’t done any new music for a while other than the stuff one their show. They’ll always have their hardcore fans, though.

    Since Demi Lovato’s departure from the tour, there hasn’t been one tweet from the personal accounts of Joe, Kevin, or Nick. It’s important to support, encourage, and love your friend Demi Lovato.

    So now the only way to support, encourage, and love your friend is through twitter? Smh.

  • lovetorrii

    I do agree with almost all that this article talked about. I believe that the Jonas Brothers did start fading as fans started to see that these boys aren’t perfect, they aren’t the perfect boyfriends either ..truthfully, I believe that really showed with the Taylor incident, then from there they took a more adult root for lines, Vines, and Trying Times and it wasn’t what the fans quite expected, & then they all kinda started going on their own personal adventures (nick jonas and the administration, kevin getting married, etc..).. but, personally i think the final straw was with demi, their bestfriend of how many years and after all the rumors swirling about joe only dating her for pr, and the tension with him bringing ashley greene on tour not too long after him and demi broke up, kind of showed fans, where the boys minds truly are.. i feel as if they aren’t sticking with the live at the bottom even if your at the top, its in plain sight that these aren’t the same boys as per 4 years ago, they’ve change, grown up, and in my person opinion became a lil more about the fame, then the music, or acting, etc.. that they do. I’m just stating my personal opinion, so i don’t need people coming at me.

  • crazylady

    you don’t need Google for that. I’ll tell you. some girl who Nick and Kevin apparently dated at the same time. she was on Unfabulous.

    So, 60,000 fans in only ONE concert shows “how bad” they are in the industry? So, over 40,000 in EACH concert (there were 3) in Brazil shows “how bad” they are in the industry? I can go on… Please…
    ——
    Calm down, I never said no one went to the shows just that compared to their previous tours it didnt sell as good for the North American leg. I remember for their last tours you had to buy tix the day they went onsale, for this one I waited till the week before and got them buy 1 get 1 free and pretty close and they still weren’t sold out the day of after that sale and the 10 and 20 dollar ticket sales.

  • letlovein19

    LMFAO NO KIDDING . i`ve known this since 2OO9 . . . jeez .

  • erinh404

    the reason they’re fading is cause they let disney walk all over them. i was sooo excited for their 2010 tour, but when they released the tour dates and said it was a camp rock tour, i was like f*ck no! i was even out of town for the concert in my city and honestly, i didn’t even care that much. it’s too bad cause i remember world tour 09 being the most fun i’d ever had at a concert, but i reallyyyy did not want to go and see a bunch of disney kids singing camp rock shit. i think a lot of older fans felt the same way, and therefore the tour didn’t sell NEARLY as well as their previous tours.
    however, i believe they’re currently HUGE in south america, which hey, is better than nothing.

  • HayleyBee

    Of COURSE they’re “fading”. They’re all doing different things now; Kevin’s married, Joe wants to act and Nick has his own band. Their supposed “World Tour” failed to release European dates (as of yet) and the Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam theme of this tour would’ve only worked if it was BEFORE the film premiered.
    Younger kids have found a new love in Justin Beiber and older fans (like myself) are growing up.
    Now, I’m not saying that if they released another album I wouldn’t have a listen to it but I wouldn’t be first in line to buy it.
    The Jonas Brothers, like everything else, were a fad. Just like High School Musical, just like Hannah Montana. Eventually these things are going to fizzle out.
    It’s got nothing to do with who they date and who they break up with (although, I’ll admit I lost a lot of respect for Joe that time with Taylor Swift).
    Look on the bright side–in ten to twenty years they’ll do a reunion tour and it’ll be the biggest thing since…well, The Jonas Brothers.

  • dilemma

    so they’ve grown up just like normal people and they try to date just like normal people do ( but becase they’re famous,the media chace them wherever they go)

    ..so what ? I love them and I used to be a hater in 2008.If lots of you guys are saying that you’ll remain a fan forever then where does this bull about them fading is coming from ?

  • HayleyBee

    We weren’t the ones that said they were fading, the statistics showed that.
    And Mark Twain said: “There are lies, damned lies and statistics.”
    But, that said, you can be a fan forever and still be able to say that they’re not as popular as they once were.
    For example, I’ve been a fan since their original album and even before that with Nick’s solo song ‘Dear God’. However, I was never one of these psycho “I’m going to marry Kevin” type people (although, if Kevin asked…) [I’m joking, just by the way] but I’ll always have a certain love for the Band of Brothers that no one will ever be able to replace. I still know all their song lyrics and I still have their CDs in my car. I can say that I’m forever a fan and admit they’re not as popular as they once were.
    They’re still extremely popular (just look at Twitter) just not as popular.
    I agree with you on the whole “they’ve grown up” “media keep chasing them” thing. It’s ridiculous what they do to kids in that industry.

  • MistressJonas

    You don’t need Team Jonas to meet them. All i do is act calm and don’t scream in their faces.Most of all I act NORMAL. Eventually if you go to enough events or shows and you act like that security begins to pick up on it. Then you talk to security. Then you get your mom to talk to them. Then once they’re friends they hook you up. That’s how i did it.
    —-|
    i wish this could happen. i didn’t see any security at the show i went to. it was 25,000 people and i just don’t know who was who.
    my goal is to get a soundcheck pass though, and im guessing they’re given through team jonas so im gonna have to get that<< — Soundcheck is worth every penny. Its so much fun. If you ever get the chance to get soundcheck..DO IT. hahaha

  • Itskait

    They played a show for like 80,000 people just the other night.

    I hear they are big in Japan.

    If they are fading away what do true fans have to be fans of? What do you have right now to be true fan or just a fan of theirs? They have nothing new out.I’m seriously not trying to be rude.

    People have been saying for a while now that they are fading. It’s taking a hell of a long time for them to actually fade.

  • realistgangsta

    so true

  • Anonimuss2.Oh

    My friends and I all think they should have another Burnin Up kinda song. That shit was hot. Even my neighbor, who HATES JB said he liked it.

  • joesgirlforver

    THis is just stupid. They are not fading. After their tour, they are going back to the studio to work on and release their next album which means more music and new music videos so they will back on top soon. When you dont have a new album out and spend most of the year touring, of course there is not going to be anything about them. THEY ARE NOT FADING. There has been talk of them fading for years but it has yet to happen and it never will.

  • bananapancakesplease

    I’ve noticed something. Whenever people say “JB is fading,” a ton of people always say, “No, not really, I’m still a fan.” I think what it is is all their fans are more mature. When you’re younger (like Justin’s fans), you constantly talk about what music you like and gloat about it, but once you get older, you appreciate the band more and don’t feel the need to talk so much about it. Besides, no album sales? They haven’t HAD any albums lately. And I think we can all admit LVATT was a fail, but they’ll come back, they always do, always will.

  • StarStruck33

    booohoo i knew it… its bieber time bitch

  • MORICETSZ

    because its like they dont seem to want to get closer and personal with their fans. before they did a bunch of silly live chats. and they were more friendlier.. yeah.

    now its just like distancing themselves slowly.
    too much PR shit.

  • xSweetCandyxx

    They need to get out of disney and realese new album

  • superJOEman

    And so? For me, as long as you’re a LOYAL fan, you will never ever leave them behind.

  • Roxxie

    I think every celebrity has moments of fading and moments of being on top.

    Of course people are only talking about their relationships
    a) the media DOES that, the only reason you get it from so few other celebs is they’re usually married or have publicly declared a long term relationship so it’s not fun and
    b) there’s no new music to talk about, until they put out a new album (soon hopefully) the old stuff won’t be talked about.

    I think (I hope) they’re in a stage where they’re distancing from Disney (no more JONAS etc) and in this time they have neither Disney fans nor older fanbase but once finally away and able to focus on more mature things for their fans that have grown up, they’ll be back on top.

    It does make me laugh though reading these things about people fading cuz I’m sure any celeb who is really in the business just because they love it doesn’t give a shit if they’re ‘trending’ or ‘fading’.

    Sorry for the essay. Get carried away LOL

  • idontttlikeyouu

    it seems like they’ve lost the passion behind their fame. They got to where they wanted to go, and now its just a job. they still obv. still love their fans more than anything, its just there isn’t a lot of excitement behind stuff. it seems like its a hassle for them. I went to a road dogs game, and i cannot tell you how annoyed they were the whole time. The girls around me, not that they werent being annoying, but they were cheering and being excited to be at a jonas brothers softball game, and they could have cared less. they used to gravitate to those people, but instead they rolled their eyes, and were purposely ignoring people when they walked by or were talking to them. I understand how it must get after you have this happen day after day, but to some people they’ve been waiting and counting down to that day for weeks, the least the jonases could do is wave, or smile, or SOMETHING. and like idk, its all different now. It’s like its just an ordinary job instead of this exciting thing they get to do like it was in ’07. i still think theyre the same, but they grew up, so did we.

  • loveeaguileraaaxox

    i love the JB for them,
    not to marry them
    wtf?

    the jonas brothers had rocky relationships? EVERYONE DOES!and someone to stop being a fan bc of a nasty break up is NOT a true fan

  • Itsnickjsgirl

    If the jonas brothers fade away, it doesn’t matter to us(the real true fans) because they are in our heart and soul in our 1 heart 2 eyes 7 liters blood 206 bones 5.5 million red blood cells 60 trillion DNA’S. Whatever they taught us are never forget able we cant ever forget those things.
    Those small things which are not small like “that its only a little bit longer and I will be fine and taught me to never let anything slow me down” “can always laugh while I am crying and everything around me is sad” “Not all guys in the world are afraid to stay forever with the Girl they Love”

    we will never forget this…its not just a small thing its huge for us :’)
    we(if guys want)fans plegde….we will never forget you no matter what happens…you guys are always there in our heart
    we will love you till the day we close our eyes forever

    whoever said this is SO RIGHT. couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • KristaAbela

    i agree with you EXACTLY. Everything you said is completely true. at all their concerts I’ve been to recently, they barely acknowledge any of their fans and walk around acting like they are so over it. It’s a huge turn-off. And the reason majority of us became fans of theirs was because of how friendly, funny, wholesome, and kind they were to their fans. Once they lost that, they lost us.

    I remember back in the day we used to wait for their bus to leave and they would stand at the front of their bus waving at everyone, all smiles…. this september, NO ONE was even at the front of the bus to say bye to everyone, even though there was a MASSIVE crowd of girls who had been waiting for them outside…. all just to see a bus pass by for 2 seconds. what a waste of life.

  • iLuvZacEfron

    i luv the jonas brothers
    but i do agree with the article
    jb should at least speak out about demis situation & show some support & show the fans that they love & support her

  • laurenhope94

    i love the jonas brothers, i hate to say it but i kinda agree :/
    they really need to show some support for demi (after all, she was their best friend for a really long time)
    i think that they really do need to release a new album, not a solo album, not a disney soundtrack, A PURE JONAS BROTHERS ALBUM. i think if they can nail their next album (maybe go back to their sound from ’07 or ’08) then they’ll be back on :)
    they’ve grown up, their fans (like me) have grown up. obviously there is going to be a new teen pop-star (justin bieber perhaps? :P) but the jonas brothers will always have their true fans no matter what and i don’t see them fading completely away just yet :)

    ok i do think that the tour this year should have not been a camp rock tour i did go to it this and the guys were amazing :D but i miss last years it was just them and opening bands. and i thnk that when they come out with a new album next year they will be on top agian i cant wait for that :D also demi and joe should have not dated i saw them has having a brothers sister reaaltionship and i dont think there fading oh yea having 20,000 to 30,000 pepole at your tour there not fading and they were complety sold out at my tour i am sad and happy that jonas la is done and now they can focas on music i think its great that there doing tv other then disney have been a fan scine 2007 and i plan on being a fan for a long time

  • taylenaluver

    The real fans will always love them s2

  • CaptainClaudius

    I think the Jonas brothers are boys who have convinced themselves that they are men when, in fact, they are still boys who think like boys. If they’re fading in relevance that’s a good thing. Maybe they’ll grow up and act like men instead of spoiled, bratty boys.

  • Entertainmentlove

    why does the name justin bieber come to mind i mean he stole there fans he stole there name JB he got selena gomez now he had kim kar

  • MistressJonas

    Why do they favor SA so much? I mean I thought that the European fans were right up there with the US fans. I’m not hating on SA..I’m just saying they favor them..and ignore Europe. Which isn’t cool. All fans should be treated equally.

  • dilemma

    AND WHO THE FUCK SAID THEY’RE PERFECT ?

    oh and I think that’s because they didn’t release an album in a long time but I think and hope they do great with their next album since the fans are absolutly excitied about it because they didn’t have any recently

    My hope is that they break away from Disney and they each do their own thing.

    The fanbase has been very split lately because of Demi/JASHLEY drama and I can see that fans are seeing them all in a different light.

    If they were, they wouldn’t be doing this huge world tour! ONLY in Argentina 60,000 people will see them this Saturday. And there are still a lot of people that want to see them, but maybe can’t because of the money or distance.

  • ilovemusic

    Obviously they’re fading. I love them and I can admit it. But every star has their peak, I don’t why people feel the need to make a big deal over it. So what if they’re fading? Does it really matter? It seems like popularity is all that fucking matters. -.-

  • MistressJonas

    went to 3 shows this summer. I found the environment pretty normal. I was greatful though for the lack of 12 yesr olds. It was nice to see girls my age there haha. But it wasn’t like there were NO people at the show. Please. There were a lot..as usual. AND I think all of their shows in South America sold out.
    —–
    you went to three shows?
    -so jealous i will die- they haven’t even announced europe dates yet

    Really? Oh wow. Maybe after the SA tour is over and after they take a little break they’ll go to Europe. idk haha.

    tbh though this article has some truth. if they came here on the camp rock tour they wouldn’t sell out 20,000 seats again. i think they’re gotta get a new cd out before they go over seas otherwise they’re gonna fail.

    Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. That’s probably what they’ll do.

    I don’t think they’ll come to Europe. I completely gave up hope.

    I find it completely disrespectful and unprofessional how the Jonas Group is treating the European fans though. They completely ignore us. They didn’t give us any information at all.

    i know, it sucks. they don’t even have an excuse, they spent months in europe this year for nicks lesmis whatnot. they know we’re waiting ;/

    They’re HUGE in South America. IDK why but they are. Therefore there’s a greater demand. They aren’t big in Europe at all.

    IA. I don’t get it either. The Jonas Group is completely ignoring all the European fans right now. They’re telling the fans that the tour dates will be announced “soon”. They already said that in May. It’s November now. So I don’t think there will be an European tour, but it’s kinda weird that they didn’t give us any information at all.

    Exactly! They’re not popular in Europe so they have to visit it to promote themselves. But they don’t do that. And ignoring the European fans doesn’t make them more popular in Europe. So if they won’t visit Europe they’ll never be popular here.

  • omgitsjoejonas

    Justin Bieber took all of the pre-teens and little girls. But it really doesn’t matter. How many fans they have will never matter to me, I’m a fan for life. Quality not quantity. just my thoughts.

    little girls don’t buy concert tickets. bieber has taken very few fans who go to jb concerts. jb have got rid of them themselves by doing this stupid tour with disney.

    just look at howbad the majority of their shows sold for this tour and its kind of obvious

    So, 60,000 fans in only ONE concert shows “how bad” they are in the industry? So, over 40,000 in EACH concert (there were 3) in Brazil shows “how bad” they are in the industry? I can go on… Please…

    JB’s strong-suit is touring, that’s where they’re the most succesful and make the most money. They don’t do amazingly well in anything else (album sales, charts, ratings, radio play etc).
    Again IDK why…

  • Anonimuss2.Oh

    They are fading because:

    1. They haven’t had an album in years!
    2. They’re grown-ass men. Of course they are not gonna have kiddie fans!
    3. TAYLOR SWIFT! Joe dumping her via phone really tanked their reputation as “good sweet boys”. Taylor going on and on didn’t help either.
    4. JONAS!: Worst. Show. Ever.
    5. Demi. Tweenies don’t like when their “hubby” hangs around a girl a lot.

    “But in the end, what it comes down to is there’s too much miscommunication between jonas group and the fans. The fans want them to be more personable yet they insist on sticking with the same formula of PR-approved bullshit. They also became quite the bag of famewhores by using their romances for shameless self-promotion but being ~vague~ about who they’re dating to keep public interest.”

    in a way, yes. they are fading. and minus bieber, i personally blame that on the fact that 2 of them are over 20, one is married, and they’re still signed with hollywood records and all that stupid disney shit.

    Most of the time it was through Team Jonas. But 4 out of the 7 times it was just being at the right place at the right time and knowing their security.

  • smilezbear

    They may nto be a spopular as they were back in 2008, but they still have pretty strong fan base and may I add that the Jonas fans are still the craziest fans in the world… and the most awesome fans.

    Plus, true fans will stick with them no matter what… to me it isn’t about who they date, it’s about the music they make. And I like the fact that they grew up and all.. it’s only natural. :)

    Bieber is just a minor obstacle.. he won’t hang around much..I mean the fans… once he grows up a bit the same will happen to him. :P

    Regarding Bieber, my friend who listens to quality music [grunge, rock, bands such as pearl jam, RHCP, Alice In Chains, Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder, The Doors.. etc.]

    Well, that friend of mine said that he can’t stand Justin Bieber because his music is, as he put it, ‘shit’ but he said that he likes Jonas’ because their music isn’t so mainstream and all… so yeah

  • camm

    i totally agree with this article. ive been a fan since i first saw them on trl with the mandy videos. then i became like obsessed with them in 2008 and saw them in concert. after the whole taylorgate thing i think that ruined a lot of peoples perceptions of joe. and miley spilling about her and nicks relationship didnt help either. i was excited for lvatt and even joined their fanclub. i went to two concerts that summer. then it just seemed like they were everywhere. like literally. i saw too much of them. there used to be days when my mom would yell at me to let me know they were mentioned on tv then all of a sudden i got tired of it and didnt really care. i think their relationships were too noted and the world got caught up in that. plus i havent heard any music from them as of late and when nick went with the administration it seemed like he wanted to venture out. now with joe going solo, i really do feel like they are fading.

    sorry for by book lol. just expressing my opinion.

  • ADUBLove

    I mean like I am a fan of the jonas brothers (not as obsessed a fan as i was before but still a fan) but yeah the reality is that there growing up and the fans are growing up i mean im a junior now i know there are older people than me probably that like the jonas brothers but i mean ive grown up sincce then dont get me wrong i still love their music but they need to get out of disney and live their life and just like continue to release music even though i liked jonas la im glad it was cancelled it was for the best acting is not really their strong suit and the show wasnt going anywhere. like new ppl r coming out and eventually fans are gonna decrease i still love them and wish them all the best!

  • whatthefudge

    I still love them and i am a fan but i think they’re fading because they’re getting to old for disney and stuff, especially since kevin is married.

    You don’t need Team Jonas to meet them. All i do is act calm and don’t scream in their faces.Most of all I act NORMAL. Eventually if you go to enough events or shows and you act like that security begins to pick up on it. Then you talk to security. Then you get your mom to talk to them. Then once they’re friends they hook you up. That’s how i did it.

  • angie2much

    oh, my suggestion for The JB’s: Reimvent your sound / go back to the earlier days of JB. [ “SOS” JB’s] . I think the lost of interest for the JB’s music is due to their constant change of sound. Trying new sounds works for some people, but fails for others. In this case, it failed for them.

  • tessa-skylar

    yes they ARE fading. what can you expect from musicians who went on a fucking tour with their “good friends” with some movie and didn’t release an album in over a year?

  • Itskait

    They played a show for like 80,000 people just the other night.

  • vikkisquires

    They are not fading theyt are still big but they have a difference audience now we are more older and not any pre teens which is good .

    they are bring out an album in 2011 which will be good form them i can’t wait to hear it and im sure i will buy it i love there music they have so much meaning behind the song.
    and Joe is bringing out a solo album which im sure will be epic.
    People like speading rumors and making up crap but us true JB fans will all stick beside them.
    I i highly dout that their relationships has anything with them slipping into obscruity and if u believe that then u believe anything.
    Relations come and go thats how a person learns in life and it will take time to find the right one. Demi and Joe should of never happened it was a big mistake on both parts but im sure they will come out in time and be best friends again.
    Just because they don’t tweet saying get better to demi ect doesn’t mean they don’t care for all we know they could be in contact with her just because we don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

    I can’t wait for them to come to the UK on tour i will be defo there supporting them at the there concert. i a fan and always will be even through the tuff times..

    Jonas Brothers will be around for a long time and true fans will be there supporting them :)

  • Katie13

    It’s been ages since their last album, so obviously there fanbase is going to get bored and start to go towards artists who are currently bringing out music (Justin Bieber)
    But you have the true fans who just stick with them and then you get the ones who are in it for the music
    If they bring out a new album Soon there fanbase will probably increase again…..it’s kinda how it works, people just lean towards the current craze and since they haven’t done anything new (the Jonas LA crap doesn’t count) people are getting bored
