PRNewsfoto/Epic RightsYou may love *NSYNC‘s music, but would you want to dress like they did in the 90s and early 2000s?  Apparently, someone thinks you would.

In preparation for the 20th anniversary of *NSYNC’s first single, “I Want You Back,” which arrived in the U.S. January 20, 1998, the band has signed a deal for a brand-new line of merchandise.  It will include a line of retro 90’s inspired clothing, as well as accessories, electronics, seasonal and home decor, games, collectible figures, slot machines, and more.

In a statement, group member Lance Bass says, “The band is thrilled to create an exciting new line of new merch…in celebration of our 20th Anniversary.” 

An exec for Epic Rights, the company that’s developing the merchandise, adds, “With a 90’s pop culture revival underway, we anticipate enormous demand for products that remind us all that *NSYNC was the band of the decade, influencing the musical style and taste of a generation, and that legacy lives on today.”

The group will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of its debut album in March of 2018, and they’re scheduled to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this coming year as well.  As for a reunion, we can only hope that Justin Timberlake invites his old pals to join him for his Super Bowl halftime show in February.
