One of the best-selling boy bands of the ‘90s, the group features Jeff Timmons, brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, and Justin Jeffre. Inspired to get back together during the pandemic, the band is scheduled to make their return to the stage in August as they begin their “98 Days of Summer” campaign. In anticipation of their return, the guys recently released their new single and video “Where Do You Wanna Go.” The vibrant, catchy pop song/video, the group’s first in eight years, was produced and co-written by DJ LUX and released under 98 INC / Johnny Wright Entertainment.
The “98 Days of Summer” campaign features 98 days of throwback photos, video clips and unreleased music on the group’s social media channels, culminating in the release of a remix EP titled “Summer of 98”, highlighted by new songs and remixes of the group’s most popular hits. The group also will be recording a new Christmas song LIVE with the Sequoia Symphony Orchestra in Los Angeles in August.
