For 20 years, Backstreet Boys have delivered the finest pop music has to offer - tightly crafted songs, floor-shaking rhythms, and unmistakable harmonies. On July 30th, all five original members - Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson - will release their new album In A World Like This.
From the first note to the last, In A World Like This impressively showcases the group's preeminent pop mastery with a collection of indelible tracks that surely rank among their biggest and best hits.
Continuing with their 20th Anniversary celebrations - which included a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame - the group will set out on a world-tour that will include a North American headlining Amphitheatre tour beginning August 2nd in Chicago, IL.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 17th at LiveNation and Ticketmaster
To show their appreciation, Backstreet Boys will be giving away a free download of
"Permanent Stain" with the purchase of tickets to their upcoming US tour.
In A World Like This is an album that sees the guys revisiting the groundbreaking dance-pop sound that first made them international superstars. Songs like the Max Martin penned first single, "In A World Like This," are classic BSB, bursting with big hooks, unforgettable melodies, and high-energy rhythms that both highlights the group's classic sound and vision while also placing it squarely in the here and now.
First single "In A World Like This" will be available everywhere starting on June 25th.
Stay tuned for more news and activities surrounding the single release!
