New Kids on the Block to Reunite

Fri Apr 4, 7:03 AM ET

BOSTON – They may be pushing 40, but the New Kids are returning to the block. The Boston boy band New Kids on the Block, which sold 70 million albums in the 1980s and early 1990s, has reunited and plans to release a new album and go on tour. The reunion comes 20 years after the release of the group’s multi-platinum album, “Hanging Tough.”

The group released a new photo Wednesday and reportedly will appear on the Today show Friday morning — the same time an unmarked countdown clock on http://www.nkotb.com ends.

“The fan response to this has been incredible,” band member Donnie Wahlberg told the Boston Herald.

Wahlberg said he was convinced to get back together with his former bandmates — Joey McIntyre, brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood — when they decided to record new music. Wahlberg said he wrote 80 percent of the new material with McIntyre and Jordan Knight.

“I had no interest going out on a nostalgia tour and singing the same material,” said Wahlberg, 38.

But he added, “We absolutely will do the old songs for sure.”

Producer Maurice Starr formed the group in Boston in the 1980s, hoping to recreate the success he had with another teen group from the city, New Edition.

At the height of their popularity, New Kids sold out world tours, marketed millions of dollars in merchandise and spawned a Saturday morning cartoon.

The group disbanded in 1994. Wahlberg has acted on television and in movies, while Jordan Knight, McIntyre

    I think doing their old songs is a good idea to begin with but after that I hope they start new material. And their name…they are not “new kids” any longer. They need a name readjustment.

    I never liked them when they were a “boy band.” Now that they have theoretically grown up, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of new music the group comes up with.

    Becky I said the same thing!

    FX mom- Sigh… I really have no idea were I stand with this because, I had the biggest crush on Jordan when I was in high school BUT, then I grew up and didn’t Jordan Knight become a prick? Anyways… I just feel like maybe they might be caught in a time warp…

    Jenny- I did like them but, like I said in my other comment then I grew up… I dunno? I do think they ned to come up with a NEW NAME! HAHA
