The Jonas Brothers have a not-so-secret weapon for coping with a hectic schedule: caffeine!

“I have an energy drink when I wake up and a coffee when I eat breakfast,” Nick Jonas tells Teen magazine in its summer issue. But that’s not all. “Then [I have] a coffee at dinner and an energy drink right before I go onstage. Then I’m good.”

And no wonder Jonas needs the boost: He and his brothers – Joe and Kevin – have a slate of upcoming projects in the works. After touring with Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne earlier in the year, the rocking trio are preparing for Camp Rock, their made-for-TV musical, which will air on the Disney Channel on June 20. In it, Joe says he gets to play a world-weary rocker named Shane Gray. But despite his band’s success, the middle brother says he’s not really like his character.

“It’s fun playing this character because you’re allowed to be mean,” Jonas says. “I’m not like him because I have great parents and they keep us grounded. We don’t take advantage of everything we get.”

Also on the Jonas Brothers’ docket: a new Disney Channels series called J.O.N.A.S! (Junior Operatives Networking as Spies), in which they play spies whose hide their identities by playing in a band. (The brothers’ youngest sibling, Frankie, is supposed to star in the show as well.) The band is also focusing on another album of new material.

“[We’re] unbelievably excited because we’ve been working on the record for a while,” Kevin says, adding, “We’re all pumped about it.”
