Backstreet's back with new Backstreet Boys album and world tour

Not to be outdone by a certain ’90s music group reclaiming the spotlight, the Backstreet Boys are assembling again for a new album and a world tour in 2019.

The former boy band and current man band released a music video for “Chances,” their latest single written by Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes for Backstreet’s 10th studio album, titled DNA. With additional tracks penned by Lauv (Charli XCX), Andy Grammer, Stuart Crichton (DNCE), and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin), the release will drop on Jan. 25 with pre-orders available now.

Just over three months later, on May 11, the DNA world tour will commence. The group has been performing for a while, notably taking up a Las Vegas residency, which will end on April 27, 2019. They also got together for a concert cruise, but DNA will lead to their largest arena tour in 18 years.

“Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party,” Howie Dorough said in a statement. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”

Over the course of three months, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, and Dorough will travel through the U.K. and Europe, beginning in Portugal, before making their way to the U.S. and Canada. The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey will mark their final stop on Sep. 15.

“We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work,” Richardson said of the album. “These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It’s our DNA. We’re really proud of that.”

Tickets for the DNA World Tour go on sale Nov. 14 through Live Nation, and each ticket comes with a physical copy of DNA.
