The Jonas Brothers released a third studio album, A Little Bit Longer, in August 2008 which featured hit singles “Burnin’ Up”. While filming Camp Rock for Disney Channel, the Jonas Brothers co-wrote and co-produced six songs for Demi Lovato’s first studio album. The premiere of Camp Rock on television was a worldwide phenomenon, the soundtrack selling 188,000 copies in its first week. 2009 proved to be a very big year for the Jonas Brothers as when in February a 3D filming from the Burnin’ Up Tour shows in Anaheim with Taylor Swift was released for a limited time in movie theaters. The band then became the youngest to ever appear on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, got their signature suits put into a contemporary artists exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and made their debut on Saturday Night Live.
The Jonas Brothers’ fourth album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, was released June 2009 with the message from Nick Jonas, “its the same old Jonas Brothers, in a sense, but we’re adding more and more music”. The album yielded singles “Paranoid” and “Fly With Me”, providing the same pop-rock radio hits that have secured their tween enthusiasts.
While the Jonas Brothers are currently promoting a tour alongside Camp Rock-comrade Demi Lovato, the band has taken an interesting direction. The eldest Kevin got married last year and Joe Jonas has primarily stuck to acting with guest appearance on American Idol and a Vampire Weekend music video. Nick Jonas branched out to form a band without his brothers, Nick Jonas and the Administration, creating music that he felt was more self-expressive, with a bluesy, John Mayer approach. Regardless, the brothers will be reuniting from their busy, individual lives for their Jonas Brothers Live in Concert tour from late July to mid October, to reassure America that they’re never too busy to run their hands through their hair for a mass of teenage squeals.
