Billboard Magazine names BBMAK's song "Back Here" 
the 9th Greatest Boy Band Song Of All Time.  See here:

Mark Barry, Christian Burns and Stephen McNally -- BBMAK, derived from their combined surnames -- engineered one astonishingly effortless pop-rock single during their time in the spotlight as guitar-toting counter-programming to *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys. No, they didn’t have dance moves or Timberlake looks, but BBMak had loaded their fairly straightforward mash note with a pristine balance of catchiness, charisma and cathartic sing-along moments; to that last point, the landing of the “Until you’re BACK here baby” chorus opening is only rivaled by the bridge’s echoing falsetto (“And I wonderrrr (wonder, wonder)...”). “Pleasant” is a word that could describe “Back Here,” but that sells short how successful it is at being aw-shucks likable and worthy of return. Few pop songs in general hit their mark as cleanly as “Back Here,” and for that, this British trio and earned a place in boy band history. -- J. Lipshtuz

We are very busy in the studio putting the finishing touches to our third studio album, which is coming April 26th. We are so thrilled to be hitting the road for a full tour in May since we absolutely loved our first few shows in November, and were blown away seeing all the fans come out after all those years away. We’re excited to get back on stage and play, as we have a special set of shows planned, which will include brand new BBMAK music. Our fans have really stood with us and we can’t wait for them to hear it!” said Ste, Mark & Christian
