Now that Kevin Richardson is back with the Backstreet Boys, the group is planning big things for 2013. Kevin tells E! Online that he, Brian, Howie, Nick and AJ will go into the studio next month in London and start recording a brand new album together. It'll be the first to feature all five members since 2005's Never Gone.
In addition, next year will mark a big milestone for Backstreet. Kevin tells E!, "Next year in 2013 will be our 20th anniversary. April of 2013 will be 20 years. We're going to release the album and put together a tour, a world tour. I'm sure on that day we'll have some kind of a big bash as well."
Asked what advice he'd offer the latest boy band on the scene, One Direction, Kevin told E!, "Really enjoy the moment. And stay true to yourself. It's hard when things get so big and successful like that and the wheels are rolling. You've got all kinds of people pulling you in all different directions. Managers, agents, record labels. But stay true to yourself and savor every moment and have a blast."
