The string of gigs, which will see the boys jet set around the UK and Latin America with their number one hits, will also see the former X-Factor contestants entertain their fans in a landmark Wembley Stadium slot, where the band held a press conference to announce the news to the media.
"We came to watch Take That here on their stadium tour and couldn’t believe how big it was so we want to emulate that," said the group.
The band's third album will see the boys venture into a new direction.
"It's a slightly rockier album." teased the singers.
"We've written a lot more of the songs this time and we've made it slightly edgier."
Speaking about their success, the boys added: "We can't believe all the things are happening at once, it's mad."
The group are currently charming Europe as part of their Take Me Home world tour, which will see them play Madrid later this month after having sold out all the tickets three months ago.
Selling more than 14 million singles and 8 million albums, the boys have given a new definition to boy band mania. Thanks to the global success of hits Kiss You and That's What Makes You Beautiful, the boys are now worth a whopping £25million collectively.
Modest as ever, the boys said that the riches have not changed them.
"It's all about trying to keep our feet on the ground at the moment," said the group.
