Backstreet Boys New Album
Backstreet's back! Again! For the first time since Kevin Richardson left in 2006, the Backstreet Boys are reunited & at full power for a new album release. In a World Like This will hit US stores this July, just before their reunion tour kicks off in August. Fans who feel in love with BSB in the 90s will be happy to see all five men back, crooning on songs and dancing on stage. In a music industry that's far different from their first three mega albums, it'll be interesting to see how many copies they sell now in comparison to nearly 70 million (seventy!) from those records.
While the tour features DJ Pauly D and Jesse McCartney on the road, the album will not be a mash-up fest like their 2011 collaboration with New Kids on the Block. The new Backstreet Boys single "Permanent Stain" reminds fans of the group's earliest hits, and this BSB single will be provided for free to every tour ticket buyer out there. The much anticipated In a World Like This, which celebrates the Backstreet Boys' 20th anniversary, doesn't really need any help to sell copies, but rewarding concert ticket buyers with a free tune is a nice incentive to get their music out there. As more dates are added to the tour and more details become available about the new Backstreet Boys album, check back with SeatGeek to keep up with the latest BSB news!

Backstreet Boys Discography
The Backstreet Boys new album In a World Like This will be BSB's eighth new studio production. Their first two albums sold over 28 million copies worldwide, propelling them to the top of the music industry. Their third album was certified platinum thirteen times over, a remarkable achievement.
