And they’re not just coming back with the old classics, but with a whole new material.
Now the fivesome have shared the first listen of their first new material since 2000, and it’s everything your inner-90s kid wanted.

The pop group, comprised of Lee Latchford-Evans, Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee and Faye Tozer, will hit the road in a national tour come November to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
None other than Abba’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus have written their first original song of the reunion.
Story of the Dark will be released this Friday, with a studio album coming up soon.
Lisa Scott-Lee told The Sun: “We’ve always had that comparison with Abba so it’s amazing to work with Benny and Bjorn.
“When we heard the special album track they gave to us we said, ‘that’s perfect’.
“It’s a bridge to where we were and it moves on nicely to where we’re taking the new music.”
And as if the new stuff isn’t exciting enough, they’re going to be joined on the road by none other than the VegaBoys on their national tour.
Steps said: “This is the album we think our fans have been waiting for. 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.”
