One Direction may be on hiatus, but the Backstreet Boys are raring up for a comeback. Nick Carter confirmed that he and his fellow band members, Kevin Richardson, A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell, are reuniting for a stint in Las Vegas.

“We have a deal with Live Nation, the touring company, and we just signed a nine-show deal to do a test run in Vegas with a residency, so that’s definitely going to happen, but we’re going to do a trial run first,” Carter told Entertainment Tonight while on the red carpet to promote Dead 7, a post-apocalyptic Western movie starring various members of Backstreet Boys, O-Town, ‘N Sync, and 98 Degrees.

The trial Vegas residency isn't the only thing you can expect from the boy band. They're also working on new music. "We’re definitely in the studio recording a brand new album. We’re gonna do a world tour first," he said. Fresh tunes, a world tour, and a residency? Now that's what we call larger than life.
