The Backstreet Boys are releasing a new album and embarking on a tour to mark their 20th anniversary as a band.

The Everybody (Backstreet's Back) hitmakers formed in Orlando, Florida in 1993, and to celebrate their two decades together they are heading out on the road.

The band announced the news on Ryan Seacrest's U.S. radio show on Monday morning (13May13), and singer Nick Carter declared, "That's right, baby! All five of us are back together. It's our 20th anniversary tour. We've got a brand new album coming out."

The trek will kick off in Chicago, Illinois on 2 August (13) and will feature Jesse MCCartney and Paul 'DJ Pauly D' Delvecchio.
