The band functioned until 2011, when it became too difficult for Nick to combine the two projects. He ceased working with The Administration; besides, the brothers took a vacation from their main activities in 2012 in order to work on their new album. By that time they had terminated their contract with the recording studio, so they worked in a sound studio at Nick’s house.
I had written five or six songs that were on my heart, things that were just pouring out of me with this new and exciting sound. They weren't necessarily right for the Jonas Brothers, but I thought they could be perfect for something else.
When I first started making it I thought I knew what it would be about... Then I had a breakup. It then became very clear what this thing would be about... And that I would need to dig really deep. Shit is too real sometimes... Reliving some of these real-life experiences through this music is hard.
