London, March 7 (IANS) Pop group Steps have announced a reunion with a new album and Britain arena tour.
It was back in 1997 that Claire Richards, Faye Tozer, Lisa Scott-Lee, Ian "H" Watkins and Lee Latchford-Evans formed the group. Steps split in 2001 and had a brief reunion in 2011. But this year they are back with their new music.
Their new single "Scared of the dark" will be released on Friday, reports mirror.co.uk.
The single will be followed by their new album "Tears On The Dancefloor", which will be out on April 21.
"This is the album we think our fans have been waiting for," Steps said in a joint statement.
"It was very important for us to have a hint of the past but to try to blend it into modern day music. We think Steps are a little bit of what everyone needs right now. We can't wait to take the new album plus all our favourite hits out on the road," the statement read further.
Steps will follow up their new album with the Party On The Dancefloor Tour.
