The Backstreet Boys are so pleased with new material they're currently recording for a new album, they're lining up an autumn tour (04).

The group have spent the past two years working on solo projects, raising families and sorting out personal problems - but now they feel ready to return with a bang.

Singer Aj Mclean, who has been working on his sobriety after a battle with booze addiction, says, "I've gotten into a lot more Seventies rock and funk.

"We're all bringing more inspiration to this new record and we're not limiting ourselves."
