Look who’s back! It’s been 16 years since O-Town dropped their debut album, so they’ve learned a lot. The band — now a foursome — sat down with HollywoodLife.com to talk all about their new sound, their ex-bandmate, their late manager Lou Pearlman, and yes, pelvic thrusts.

O-Town just dropped their first single off their upcoming EP, but “Empty Space” is just the beginning. This is the first time they’re releasing music completely independent from a record label, and things are changing a bit. HollywoodLife.com sat down with the guys — Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrada to find out everything you wanted to know.

O-Town is back with a vengeance!

The four remaining band members told RadarOnline.com exclusively that they penned a song about their dead former manager, Lou Perlman, called “Shady Business,” laying bare his secrets once and for all.

“We came from a ‘Rewind Con’ convention and it went terrible for us,” Jacob Underwood said of their new hit. “For everybody there, business-wise. So long story — it came from that situation happening right into a writing session. And it was within a couple months of Lou’s passing and everybody kept asking us what we thought and what we think and what it means to us.”

He explained the song is about how they got taken advantage of in their careers, but fans will have to wait until the song is released this summer for the specifics!

As Radar previously reported, Perlman died behind bars from cardiac arrest in August 2016. He was in the middle of a 25-year-sentence for running a $300 million Ponzi scheme.

Although he managed the group (originally consisting of Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller and Ashley Parker Angel) from 2000 to 2003, it is not known how much money — if any — that he took from them. Members of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC have slammed him in the past for shady business practices.

As for Angel, he’s not with the group this time around.

Penick revealed to Radar that the men recently ran into Angel at the same Rewind Con, but they have not spoken since.

The men agreed that they don’t miss having Angel in the band since he’s “not in our life anymore.”

“It would be weirder to have him than it is to have him out now,” Penick added.

“I don’t remember having a fifth member!” Underwood joked.

"O-Town Discusses Why the 'All or Nothing' Chorus Was an Instant Classic: 'It Has an Awesome Key Change'" - Billboard

Interview with O-Town discussing "All or Nothing" after it being named 16th greatest chorus of the 21st century. Read below for O-Town's portion or click here to go to the full article.

In July 2001, just as the "boy band renaissance" of the late '90s and early '00s was quickly winding down and *NSYNC released what would be its final album together, one Making The Band-made band, O-Town, came through and delivered what could be considered a parting shot of the era. Even if debut single "Liquid Dreams" made you skeptical of the reality-show group, there was no denying that the band's second single, "All or Nothing," was immediately a step up. Their biggest hit to date, a power ballad that peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and at No. 1 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, is now one of the most iconic modern boy band singles.

Sixteen years later, four of the five original O-Town members continue to make new music as a group, but even still they love paying homage to the song that changed everything for them. As Billboard celebrates the best choruses of the 21st century, we sat down with O-Town (Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrada) to discuss the history of "All or Nothing," and what made its chorus so memorable.

16. O-Town, "All or Nothing"

If there's one great kind of chorus the 21st century is largely lacking in, it's the planet-sized power ballad with a refrain so sweeping and high-stakes that you have to raise an entire blowtorch to it; the kind of chorus you need to craft an entire summer blockbuster around just to have the appropriately dramatic moment for it to soundtrack. Well, O-Town's "All or Nothing" didn't get the hit movie -- Pearl Harbor was already taken, sadly -- but it certainly got the rest, with a chorus that peak Bon Jovi or Bryan Adams would've traded years off their life for, and a climactic key change that took the song higher than Scott Stapp could ever have dreamed. -- A.U.

O-Town, minus heartthrob Ashley Parker Angel, is back at it again with a brand new single called “Empty Space,” and you can stream it right here!

The track is the first to come from the group’s – made up of the four other original members Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick and Dan Miller – upcoming two EPs, which was funded by fans via Kickstarter.

“They’re the most supportive fans that any band can ask for,” Jacob said in a statement. “We went straight into the studio to record our fourth full-length studio album. We’re going to be splitting it up and releasing it in two parts. It’s as contemporary as we could be. This is music that would be out on the radio. This is music that we listen to. It’s very much a dance-club fun vibe. Topically, we’re moving a little bit away from just boy-girl love.”

Guess who's back? Back again?... Remember a little band called O-Town? A group of musical mavericks who provided the 2001 hit "Liquid Dreams"? These guys are back in town, because the '90s never really went anywhere. But, they may or may not give audiences the nostalgic journey they were hoping for, and there are a few reasons why. The band released a new song "Empty Space" on Tuesday, and it doesn't seem to come from the O-Town I love and remember. How times have changed.

Since rising to fame as the first group to win MTV's Making the Band in 2000, the boy band had a few albums under its belt in the late '90s to early '00s, before splitting up in 2003. Each member went on to pursue solo careers, but none really took off. Perhaps the most successful was Ashley Parker Angel (who performed in Broadway's Hairspray) and his thriving Instagram with a plethora of shirtless selfies.

In 1999, ABC began airing one of the first reality shows in major network history, Making the Band, which chronicled the formation and rise to success of the boy band, O-Town. The public tuned in to watch as Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Ashley Parker Angel, and Dan Miller signed with Clive Davis’ J Records, and achieved platinum success with their debut album.

Despite their success, the band broke up in 2004 both to escape an unfair record contract and to pursue individual endeavors. However, they are finally back, 16 full years after the release of their debut album, and ready to unleash a new single plus a forthcoming new EP for fans to enjoy.




Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the single, “Empty Space,” which the band notes is “O-Town, true to form.”

O-Town have been trying out their new music during select live appearances. If you’d like to keep up with their schedule, check here.

This year, the optional theme will be "Rockin' Through the Decades," a celebration of music, fashion and culture on the rolling waters of the bay. The two concerts will fit the theme well, officials said.

Gaynor was an icon of the 1970s disco era, and O-Town released two albums near the end of the boy-band fad of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The group disbanded in 2003, but four members reformed the group a few years ago.

In 1999, ABC began airing one of the first reality shows in major network history, “Making the Band”, which chronicled the formation and rise to success of the boy band. The public watched Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Ashley Parker Angel and Dan Miller sign with Clive Davis’ J Records, release the No. 1 singles “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing,” and achieve platinum success with their debut album.

The boy band O-Town reformed as a quartet in 2013.

O-Town teams up with Cabrera, a Platinum-selling singer and songwriter who became known for his 2004 album "Take it All Away," which included noteworthy singles "On the Way Down" and "True."

He will release his fifth full-length album later this year.


Ryan Cabrera is best known for hits such as "On the Way Down" and "True."

The Music Pier will be set up for a dance concert for the O-Town and Cabrera show. $15 tickets are also on sale for a “meet and greet” with O-Town and Cabrera noon to 1 p.m. Saturday on the Music Pier.
