The Jonas Brothers have announced the publication of a new memoir, Blood, on 12 November via Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of the publishing house Macmillan.
Blood chronicles the origins of the Jonas Brothers, traces their swift rise from Disney idols to genuine pop stars and delves into the tensions that fuelled their break-up in 2013. But the band will also discuss their recent reunion, which will culminate with the release of their new album, Happiness Begins, June 7th.
The Jonas Brothers — Joe, Kevin and Nick — co-wrote Blood with journalist Neil Strauss, who famously co-wrote The Dirt with Mötley Crüe.
“We’re three brothers from New Jersey, and we were not supposed to be successful,” Joe Jonas said in a statement. “From record labels dropping us to our dad losing his job over us, this shouldn’t have happened or lasted as long as it did. Yet here we are, more excited than ever, and we’re so grateful and ready to tell the full story of the journey we’ve had as individuals, as artists, and as family.”
The Jonas Brothers announced their reunion plans in February, releasing a new song, ‘Sucker,’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has topped 445 million global streams to date. The band has since shared another new track, ‘Cool.’ Happiness Begins will mark the Jonas Brothers’ first album in 10 years, following Lines, Vines and Trying Times.
Along with the new album and memoir, the Jonas Brothers will also release a new documentary, Chasing Happiness, on 4 June via Amazon Prime. The band will embark on a massive North American tour in support of Happiness Begins on 7 August in Miami. Visit the band’s official website for tickets and further information on all the dates.
At the height of their fame, the Jonas Brothers earned two No. 1 albums and sold out shows across three continents, selling over 17 million-plus albums with over 1 billion streams worldwide.
