The two boy-band members are calling themselves Nick and Knight and together, they are ready to once again take over the world of pop!
Today on ABC’s Good Morning America, Nick Carter & Jordan Knight announced their new venture and added that they have already been recording and will take their act on tour this year. “… me and Nick have combined our talents, our superpowers, and we are now a new group.” The two also spoke about Nick’s wedding, and their preference between boxers or briefs.
During an interview with HuffPost Live, Knight explained their new sound is defined by a “rhythmic, sexy, funky RnB style.” On GMA, Carter added that it also includes tones of “pop, rock, … and urban.”
Carter certified on the morning talk show that they are “pretty much done with the [eponymous] album,” but until then, fans can get a little taste of what’s to come with their first single “Two of Us” which comes as a free download when you pre-order the duo’s album, debuting Sept. 2, from nickandknight.com.
As huge as this news is, it also has fans bitting their nails as it might look like a sign of a breakup of Backstreet Boys and NKOTB, but worry not. “Both of our groups know what we’re doing,” Carter told The HuffPo. “This has been in the works since the start of the NKOTBSB thing, so everyone is on the same page. [Jordan] is on tour right now, I’m on tour right now with the boys, and I think it’s probably going to be one of those natural things to guess … but it’s not, we know that our group helps us out and hopefully this will help our groups out at the same time.”
The pair’s 39-city tour kicks off on Sept. 15 in Nashville, Tenn and concludes on Nov. 22 in Calgary, Canada. They will make stops at New York’s Best Buy Theater (Oct. 10), Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theater (Oct. 11,12), Orlando’s Plaza Live Theater (Oct. 21), and Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution Live (Oct.22).
