Backstreet’s back, all right.

The Backstreet Boys – featuring all five original members, including Kevin Richardson who officially returned to the fold last month – have finished a new album “In a World Like This,” due out July 30, and will start a tour Aug. 2 to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The tour, featuring Jesse McCartney and DJ Pauly D as openers, will stop at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 13. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster.

“Our goal is always to push ourselves as much as possible,” said AJ McLean in a statement. “We want Backstreet Boys to keep setting the template and raising the bar.”
