Washington (ANI): The 'Backstreet Boys' are hoping to follow in the footsteps of rock band 'Eagles' and never split.
Despite the exit of bandmate Kevin Richardson, the boy band has no plans to wrap up their 15-year career any time soon, for singer Howie Dorough insisted that they will stick together like the Eagles.
"We hope to be around, God willing, as long as the Eagles," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
The singer who is notable for his high falsetto, insisted that the band has always supported the individual career of any member but will always come back and sing together.
"Each of us have always said, since day one, we're gonna support each other and each other's individual endeavours and give each other the chance to spread their wings, kind of like what the Eagles did and come back together every so often and do group records," he said.
"We're really tight, we're like a family," he added.
Meanwhile, the band, which held a sway over the world of pop music during the 1990s, is gearing up to release their sixth album on 30 October, which marks the group's 10th anniversary with record label Jive Records.
