Earlier this week Lance Bass took to twitter to play an April Fool’s prank on his followers. He tweeted that he and his fellow ‘N Sync band mates would be reuniting for a greatest hits album, which would include two new songs, and a 2015 world tour. He included in his tweet a link to a story on that furthered the prank by adding “details” like Miley Cyrus being featured on one of the new songs and the “Wrecking Ball” singer being the opening act for the tour. While this boy band reunion turned out to be nothing but a April Fool’s prank, we learned of another boy band reunion that is no joke at all.

Early 2000’s boy band O-Town announced on Monday that they have reunited and are working on a new project. Well four of the five original members anyway. Former member, and fan favorite, Ashley Parker Angel will not be taking part in the reunion saying that he is pursuing other opportunities. O-Town released  a rather well produced video announcing their reunion which you should check out below.

O-Town was formed in 2000 by Lou Pearlman and was the focus of the first season of the ABC reality show Making the Band. (Season 2 of Pearlman’s Making The Band  was continued on MTV. Not to be confused with Sean “Diddy” Combs’ version of the franchise, which aired on MTV from October, 2002-October 2009)  Pearlman was of course the mastermind behind putting together other boy band acts like  the Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync, and LFO. O-Town put out their self-titled debut album in 2001 and the first single “Liquid Dreams” was met with moderate success. It was the second single off of that album that the band is most known for. “All or Nothing” turned out to be the band’s most successful hit, reaching the #3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was also nominated in 2001 by the Radio Music Awards for Song of the Year.

So with the news that O-Town has reunited some ten years after they originally broke up, we remember their biggest hit “All or Nothing.” Enjoy!
