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

Los Angeles, CA – December 17, 2018 - BBMAK, Mark Barry, Christian Burns and Stephen McNally who recently reunited after a fifteen year hiatus have announced they are currently finishing work on a new album that will be released April 26, 2019. The as-yet-untitled album is the first new music from the pop group in over fifteen years. BBMAK will launch a Pledge Music campaign today which includes exclusive items such as; handwritten & signed lyric sheet for one BBMAK song of your choosing, signed polaroid photo (no two are alike) of the band and, of course, the new album signed by the band and much more.

We are so happy to be working with Pledge this year in support of our new record!

This is the first album of new material that we’ve released in fifteen years and we are incredibly excited to be back. The support that you have shown us throughout the years is so very appreciated, and we can’t wait to get back out on the road and to play this new music for all of you.”said the band

The first single from the upcoming album is scheduled to be released in February followed by a late spring and summer North American tour.

In addition, the band’s new holiday video for the Nat King Cole classic, “The Christmas Song” was released today. The song captures the smooth harmonies the band is famous for as they sit together with just an acoustic guitar next to a festive holiday display. View here: https://youtu.be/1qrcVrAHkXM

The multi-platinum selling English pop group has sold more than three million albums, and had hit singles worldwide between 1999 and 2003, when they disbanded.

Best known for their self-penned infectious guitar driven hits “Back Here,” “Out of My Heart“ and “The Ghost of You and Me,” BBMAK was one of the few bands from that genre to play their own instruments. Billboard Magazine recently named “Back Here” the 9th Greatest Boy Band Song of All Time.
