It’s impossible not to notice how the faces in their photos have matured since you last saw the Jonas Brothers — that is, unless you’re one of the rabid fans who have made their previous tours into sell-out smashes.


In a recent teleconference, the Brothers — Nick, Kevin and Joe — addressed this very subject.


“I think you might see a little bit of reflecting of us growing up a little bit,” says Nick of the band’s current tour, which is not actually in support of a new album, but just a reminder of who they are and who they have been.


“I think the decision was made because we knew that we had a lot of material. I think we just felt that after releasing four albums in about three-and-a-half years, it might be a bit of an overload,”?Nick adds. “So we started to not go with releasing an album this year. But I think, you know, 2011, you can expect another Jonas Brothers album.”

One definite sign of the group’s maturity is that Kevin is now married.

“This will be the first time that I have toured as a married man, so it should be a little bit different,” he says. “For us, our musical journey has been a progression. We’re not trying to grow up too fast or anything, and I’m saying that even coming from being married. For us, we’re growing up with our audience and growing up with the people listening to our music, as well as the people that are starting to listen to our music now.”
