98 Degrees to Release New Album
The group's first studio recording in more than 10 years will arrive on May 7.
Just what the world has been waiting for: 98 Degrees, the recently reunited boy band fronted by Nick Lachey, is releasing its first new album in more than a decade.
The record, titled 2.0, drops May 7 via Entertainment One's music label weeks before the group launches "The Package Tour" with co-boy banders NKOTB (aka New Kids on the Block) and Boyz II Men. The nostalgia-fueled jaunt starts May 28 in Uncasville, Conn., and winds through 46 other cities including Boston, Houston, and Anaheim, Calif., before wrapping up in Indianapolis on Aug. 4.
"We are really excited to bring our fans new music and get out on the road," Lachey said Wednesday in a statement. "This is a long time coming."
98 Degrees -- comprised of Lachey, his brother Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons - marked their first TV appearance in 10 years on the Today show's "Summer Concert Series" in August.
The Grammy-nominated quartet soared to radio success after their breakthrough album, 98 Degrees and Rising, went quadruple-platinum in 1998. They later released the follow-up Revelation, a Christmas album and a compilation album called The Collection before going on hiatus in 2002.
