Ninety Eight Degrees is the latest boy band to jump on the reunion bandwagon.  The group announced on Wednesday that they will be releasing their first album in ten years on May 7th, weeks before kicking off their joint-tour with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men. 

The group, comprised of Nick Lachey, his brother Drew, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons, made their official return back in August on the Today show. 

The album will be called 2.0.  In a statement, Nick says the foursome is excited to bring fans new music and the reunion is a long time coming.  


Ninety-eight Degrees' breakthrough album 98 Degrees And Rising went quadruple-platinum in 1998, which they followed up with a Christmas album and Revelation.

The Cincinnati-based Lachey brothers have remained in the entertainment industry since the group's hiatus started in 2006.  Nick pursued a solo career and made headlines for his high-profile marriages to Jessica Simpson and current wife Vanessa Minnillo.  And Drew was a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars." 

"The Package Tour" kicks off in late May and will hit 46 other cities before wrapping up in August.
