The American pop rock trio, who rose to fame in the mid-2000s mainly through appearances on Disney Channel, released their last studio album to date, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, in 2009.

They announced their split in October 2013, cancelling a 19-date tour just a couple of days before the first show.

A spokesman for the group told Us at the time: ”There is a deep rift within the band.

He added: ““There was a big a disagreement over their music direction.”

Joe, Nick and Kevin are now aged respectively 29, 26 and 31.

Joe has formed a new band, DNCE, with Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle, and JinJoo Lee. Last year, he joined The Voice Australia as a coach, and voiced a character in Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.

He and Game of Thrones‘s Sophie Turner announced their engagement in October 2017.

Nick has pursued a solo career and has released two studio albums since the group’s split. He has also appeared in films, including Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in 2017.

He and actor Priyanka Chopra married in December last year.
