    NEW YORK, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Jonas Brothers, the emerging teenage
 powerpop garage rock band hailing from New Jersey, will hit the road in late
 January for a series of American club dates beginning January 28 in
 Sacramento, California and wrapping up March 3 in Orlando, Florida (see
 itinerary following).
     The Jonas Brothers winter tour gives fans a chance to catch the boys in
 intimate club settings before the group's eagerly-awaited debut album, It's
 About Time, hits the stores on Tuesday, April 11.
     The album's first single, "Mandy," a Jonas Brothers-original composition
 filled with hope and inspiration, has been made into a three-part video,
 directed by acclaimed music documentary filmmaker Ondi Timoner (who won a
 Sundance Award for "Dig!").  Part I of the Jonas Brothers three-part "Mandy"
 film is expected to premiere on MTV's "TRL" during the week of February 20
 (check your local listings).
     The Jonas Brothers are slated for an April 8 appearance on the CBS
 "Saturday Early Show."
     The Jonas Brothers are Kevin, Nicholas and Joseph, three teenage siblings
 who've developed their own signature sound pouring soaring vocal harmonies,
 unforgettable melodic hooks, and boundless energy into fresh original songs,
 most of them written by the Jonas Brothers, with collaborators including Adam
 Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), Michael Mangini (Joss Stone), Desmond Child
 (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi), Billy Mann (Jessica Simpson, Destiny's Child) and Steve
 Greenberg (Joss Stone, Hanson). The Grammy-winning duo of Greenberg and
 Mangini, fresh off their success with Joss Stone's two acclaimed albums,
 produced It's About Time, drawing on the Jonas Brothers' unpretentious garage
 rock sound and affinity for hooky 70's British punk records.
     Inspiration for the group's songs comes directly from the boys' personal
 experiences -- from the highs and lows of dating to being on the road to
 having been given the opportunity to follow their dreams at such a young age.
 "A lot of it is about typical teenage love stuff like 'Oh, what am I going to
 do if I can't see her today?' It's not stuff that we don't know about," says
     The Jonas Brothers toured extensively last summer with Jesse McCartney,
 the Backstreet Boys and The Click Five.
