BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The anticipation has been
building for months, ever since Jonas Brothers signed with Disney's
Hollywood Records and went into the studio with producer John Fields in
February. The result is the top 5 debut for the self titled Jonas Brothers
The lead in to the impressive chart debut is the culmination of high
profile events and promotional activities. Jonas Brothers have had four # 1
singles on Radio Disney and major visibility on Disney Channel. A
multi-media multi-million dollar advertising campaign with TOPPS created
heightened awareness for the band, and brought out of music department
placement opportunities with major retailers.
Pre-sales of the album at Jonas Brothers' sold out headline shows (which started at the end of June) added more to the frenzy. For the past several months, the brothers have graced the covers of every teen and 'tween fanzine. TV appearances are also kicking into gear starting with a special appearance and performance August 17 on Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana". This will be followed by performances on Miss Teen USA August 24, Arthur Ashe Kids' Day August 25, Disney Channel Summer Games Closing Ceremony August 25, and with an appearance as presenters on the Teen Choice Awards August 26. A review in USA Today read, "They've got fizzy harmonies, punchy power chords and sugary choruses that bounce off the walls."
Jonas Brothers, the CD, is the first to be released on the new way to
view music, CDVU+. The new format "reads" like a digital magazine full of
exclusive video content, hidden "easter eggs," and interactive goodies that
can be accessed both on and offline. CDVU+ replaces the traditional CD
booklet/jewel case with eco-friendly packaging (100% recyclable, 35% post-consumer) while still offering an unprecedented amount of content.
This fall, Jonas Brothers will tour with Miley Cyrus.
Said Hollywood Records General Manager, Abbey Konowitch, "Jonas
Brothers have put in a great deal of energy and work into making and
promoting this record, and this debut reflects their and our staff's
dedication to this project."
Added Jonas Brothers, "We are so happy with our family at Hollywood
Records (Kevin)." "They really understand our vision and support us (Joe)."
"We're also fortunate to have the best fans in the world, and we are
grateful to everyone who helped get us here (Nick)."
The Jonas Brothers are exclusively managed by: Philip McIntyre, Kevin
Jonas and Johnny Wright.
