  • Former boy band 98 Degrees is releasing a new album and going on tour this summer. Now that they’re clearly grown men, member Nick Lachey says the group figured that if they were ever going to reunite, it needed to be now. The group’s last album, Revelation, was released in 2000. That’s quite a hiatus. [Rolling Stone]
