Time and evolving trends may have shoved ’90s boy band, Backstreet Boys, back into music's backseat, but alas the old adage that, "everything old is new again," is once again proving to be true.
The über successful five-member band, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, have announced a new tour and an eighth studio album. But the big buzz revolves around an upcoming documentary directed by Stephen Kijak. Pulse Films, which co-produced the curious 3D affair that was the Katy Perry documentary, Part of Me, is also on board. The story hopes to showcase the band's journey from newbies to multi-platinum recording artists.
The doc may prove to be a festive endeavor, especially now that bandmate Kevin Richardson has come back into the fold—Richardson left the group in 2006. All the other guys are intact—A.J. McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Brian Littrel.
The release date has yet to be scheduled, but the doc is slated for completion in fall of this year. No word yet on whether the "Boys," who are, technically, men, will revamp the band title.
Speaking of Boyz II Men ... that ’90s group hits the road alongside Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees for a nostaligic-esque concert tour beginning in May.
Stay tuned ...
