First the 98 Degrees reunion was announced, then it was postponed, then it was back on again when New Kids on the Block came calling. Now we learn the AMAZING news that the 90s boyband has recorded and is releasing a BRAND NEW ALBUM. Yes, folks all those wishes made on falling stars and prayers to various gods and goddess have come TRUE! At last! 98 Degrees is hittin’ us this Spring with an album titled 2.0. You may rejoice now.
Nearly a year after it was rumored that 98 Degrees would reunite, the guys have announced plans for a brand-new album. On May 7, the foursome will give their fans a spankin’-new album, 2.0, their first studio release since 2000′s Revelation. “We are really excited to bring our fans new music and get out on the road,” Nick Lachey said in a statement. “This is a long time coming” … In addition to dropping new music in May, the guys will also embark on the boy-band bonanza Package Tour, during which they will open for New Kids on the Block and will be joined by Boyz II Men. The trek will begin May 31 in Uncasville, Connecticut, and will circle its way around North America before wrapping up July 13 in Minneapolis. “Boyz II Men have not done an arena tour,” Donnie Wahlberg told MTV News last month. “98 Degrees is doing their first show together in 12 years, so it’s a big deal. We’re doing our first tour with just us [without Backstreet Boys] in three years, so we are going to put on our show, and they are going to put on theirs.”
I guess I can stop sacrificing chickens
and small children to the dark One now that my long held wish and desire is about to be fulfilled. I don’t know about you but I’m already counting on 2.0 by 98 Degrees to be the #1 album of 2013 … who’s with me?
