Backstreet Boys Announce NEW Album and TourK-BAHN

If you missed it this morning on Good Morning America, fans were lined up and in studio to catch a glimpse of one of the best selling boy bands of all time, Backstreet Boys. The group, with all five original members – Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson – stopped by to perform their new song “Permanent Stain” (watch here) as well as announce their new album (to be released July 30th) and tour of the same name, 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. “We always want to top our previous albums. That’s always our objective,” says Carter. “All five of us were determined to create an album where every song could be a single.”

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.com and Ticketmaster.com. Fan club members can purchase tickets today – Wednesday, May 15th – at www.backstreetboys.com.

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. First single “In A World Like This” will be available everywhere starting on June 25th.
