Boy band 98 Degrees is reuniting for a summer after 10 years, RumorFix reports.

98 Degrees -- Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre -- is supposedly set to go on a 15-city tour this summer between July and August. Rumors of the boy band reuniting began after their website was updated for the first time in nearly a decade.

In February, Timmons told a local news outlet in the Philippines that there had been discussions for a 98 Degrees reunion, but nothing had been confirmed yet.

"We've been talking of 98 Degrees getting back together for a reunion show," he said. "Nothing's out of the question but nothing's solidified. We'll see."

Timmons formed the group in Los Angeles in 1995 with brothers Nick and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre. Despite meeting in California, all members of the band were from Ohio. Two years later, the group released its debut album, with the single, "Invisible Man."

98 Degrees would go on to release eight Top 40 singles, including "Thank God I Found You," which featured pop diva Mariah Carey, and "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)."

Since announcing an extended hiatus in 2002, the members of 98 Degrees have pursued individual projects. Drew Lachey won in the second season of "Dancing with the Stars," while brother Nick released two solo albums and is now the host of the a capella talent search "The Sing-Off." Jeffre ran for mayor of Cincinatti, Ohio, while Timmons also released a solo album and toured internationally.

98 Degrees isn't the only 90s pop group set to reunite in 2012. In March, S Club 7 announced their plans for a small UK reunion tour and two new albums. Meanwhile, the Backstreet Boys, who recently toured with New Kids on the Block, are also planning to release a new album in 2012.
