Boy Band O-Town Releases New Single After More Than 10 Years
With NSYNC reuniting for a stage performance, the Backstreet Boys going on tour with New Kids on the Block, and Lance Bass attempting a solo career, it looks like a ‘90s boy band revival is in full force.
Cashing in on this trend is O-Town, a group formed on Making The Band when it aired on ABC in 2000 and later managed by Lou Pearlman. Although the group was one of the “lesser” acts of its time, they put out two albums – O-Town and O2, the former of which went platinum – and had two singles in the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10 (“Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing”).
News emerged this week of a new single, a track called “Skydive.” The song, which can be heard on their Soundcloud page, is the first cut off their upcoming third studio album, titled Lines & Circles. The full-length release is scheduled to be out by August 3, and a supporting tour will begin in the fall.
O-Town officially called it quits in 2003, but in 2011, four of the original members -- Dan Miller, Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, and Trevor Penick – started getting back together to perform. Ashley Parker Angel has since been missing from the lineup.
The new track follows two singles released in 2003 from O2, “These Are The Days” and “I Showed Her.” Out of these two, only the former made it into the Billboard Hot 100.
