O-Town is making a comeback!

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter, the group is gearing up to release a fourth album.

The boy band was able to raise more than $60,000 (and counting) to fund their new music.

“We’re ready to put out new music, and the fans have made it known they’re ready for it too,” member Jacob Underwood told Us Weekly“For the first time in our musical careers we’re faced with no label or funding to help us deliver.”

The kickstarted began on Sept. 30 and surpassed their goal of $47,500 in a few hours.

Fans looking for new music from Dan, Erik-Michael, Jacob and Trevor will have until October 30th to contribute.

“The music industry has changed. When we first started, if you didn’t have a label, you had nothing,” Estrada tells Us. “Now, the power of the internet and the support of your fans, that’s the true key to success. Our fans have stood by us for over 15 years, and this just goes to show that an era of music that many thought was over was really just a sleeping giant that needed to be awakened again.”

Fifth original member Ashley Parker Angel will not be returning.

Earlier this year, the guys joined 90s artists 98 Degrees, Dream and Ryan Cabrera on the My2K tour this year where fans could re-live their childhood.

They were formed back in 2000 during MTV’s successful show Making the Band.
