Backstreet’s back, alright!

As One Direction prepare to go on their first-ever hiatus, some of their predecessors are ready to take their rightful residence back in the spotlight.

The Backstreet Boys have had a pretty good year thanks to their documentary Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of ‘s theatrical handout and Nick Carter ‘s silver medal finish on Dancing With the Stars … but it looks like 2016 is going to be even bigger for the boys men.

That’s because four members of the five people have been wallpapering their social media reports this week with photographs of themselves back in studio along with the hashtag #NewBSB2016!

A.J. McLean , Kevin Richardson , Howie Dorough , and Brian Littrell have each posted at least one pic promoting their upcoming ninth studio album since Tuesday … but there’s no message for purposes of determining whether Nick will be joining them.

As you know, the most famous of the sons just plunged his solo album All American and is set to go on tour, but hopefully Nick will find time to work on both.

Ch-ch-check out the photographic evidence that the Backstreet Boys are surely coming back here( below )!!!

How spouted are U for new Backstreet Boys music in 2016 ??
