December 16, 2011 - 7:47 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — It's almost winter, but get ready for some surf and sun: The Beach Boys are reuniting.

The founding members of the classic rock group — Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine — announced Friday they are getting back together to celebrate their 50th anniversary. They're working on a new album and also plan a 50-date tour that will take them around the world.

Wilson said in a statement that he misses "the boys" and it will be a thrill to be on stage with them again.

The group also includes Bruce Johnston and David Marks, who had been with the band for decades.

The Beach Boys first concert is scheduled for April 27 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
