The Jonas Brothers said Wednesday that the band's fifth album will never be released but that their family ties remain strong despite the group's recent breakup.

"We're family first and that's always been our main priority," youngest brother Nick Jonas, 21, said on a "Good Morning America" appearance with his two siblings. "Honesty within what we do as a group was really important, and so I came to the table with the guys just before we were prepping for a tour and shared my heart with them . . . I said, 'Look, I feel like we've had some complications within the group."

Those complications involved their style of music, Joe Jonas, 24, explained. "We held onto it for so long that we . . . felt like it was starting to get stale to us." He also said there were "individual things that we were just butting heads about, whether it was the way to set up the music video to even just personal opportunities."

Kevin Jonas, 25, confirmed that the album "V" will go unreleased. But to thank the group's fans, he said, "We also have gone back in the studio and finished recording the live tracks from the last summer tour -- about 10 songs. We'll be giving that to our fan-club members, as a gift just from us."

Elsewhere, Joe Jonas dispelled rumors of a drug problem, telling People magazine they are "obviously not true. I've never touched heroin in my life." He added, "I was walking down the street and people are asking me if they can give me a hug and how rehab is. I'm like, 'You tell me, because I've never been.' "
