So long, Jonas Brothers.

After weeks of rumors and a cancelled tour due to what some called a ‘deep rift’ in the group, the Jonas Brothers have announced they are officially ending their career as a band. They’ll remain family of course, so this isn’t your typical breakup, but the brothers’ days of playing music together have come to an end.

Speaking exclusively to People Magazine, the JoBros opened up for the first time since rumors of their demise began nearly a month ago. Their comments, for the most part, were relatively short:

Keane Frontman Denies Break Up Rumors, Says Band Will Be Taking ‘A Bit Of Time Out’ From Being Together

What we have here is a classic case of publication versus the artist. One thinks a quote meant the end of one of the UK’s most notable pop outfits in recent memory, while the other couldn’t disagree more. Which is right? Let’s find out.

On Sunday (October 20), The Sun reported that Keane would soon be breaking up after 16 years so singer Tom Chaplin could make a solo album and main songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley could focus on penning hits for other artists. We didn’t run the story because at the time The Sun had no direct quotes or confirmation …

Rest In Peace: Lostprophets

This is one headline I have been waiting all 2013 to write. Not because I hate the band, but because moving forward as they have in recent months would be the worst possible decision a band could make.

Following a year that has found them tied to the alleged pedophilia their vocalist engaged in with multiple minors, rock outfit Lostprophets have announced they are officially calling it quits. The band has not specifically mentioned the drama surrounding Ian Watkins, but one look at their farewell note to fans and the underlying cause to this disbanding quickly becomes clear. Their message …
