Fans of The Backstreet Boys woke up this morning to some exciting news as the band roars into 2019.
The popular singing group announced that they will head out on a world tour in support of their 10th studio album titled DNA, which will be released on January 25, 2019.
The new album includes songs written by Stuart Crichton, Andy Grammer, Lauv and Mike Sabbath.
Along with the announcement, the band also released a new single, “Chances,” written by Shawn Mendes and Ryan Tedder.
This will be Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A. J. McLean, and Kevin Richardson’s biggest and most ambitious tour in 18 years.
“When this group started 26 years ago—and through all the highs and lows of our career—we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group,” said Dorough to E! News.
The singer and songwriter also noted that the band is excited to be closing a career chapter with their Las Vegas residency and moving forward into the next phase of their career. After 14 months, the Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino will end on April 27, 2019.
“These next set of dates are going to be a party,” Dorough said to E! News. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”
