98 Degrees have reformed.

The group - brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons - are excited to be taking the stage together for the first time in 11 years later this summer as, despite varying successes with their individual projects since going their separate ways, they have missed working together.

Nick told KIIS-FM DJ Ryan Seacrest: ''I think we've all been lucky in the 11 years since we last performed together to go on and do stuff individually. Drew was the winner of 'Dancing With The Stars' season 2, and I've gone and done some solo stuff.

''But there really is nothing like coming together as a unit, as a group, as a band, on the stage, and I think we all miss that.

''We all miss the rush of being onstage together, performing together, and certainly the fans have kind of been clamouring for it, so it just felt right.

''We always said we were not broken up, we were just taking a break, and now it just seemed like the right time to put everything back together.''

However, Nick - who insisted earlier this year that the group wouldn't be getting back together - insists they are only reuniting for a one-off performance at the MixTape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in August.

He added: ''I didn't say we weren't going to do it, but there was some speculation about a full tour happening this summer and our fans have been kind of eager to see us get back together.

''I just wanted to make sure that they understood that a full tour wasn't happening this summer, but obviously [I'm] very excited to announce that we're doing this big festival in Hershey in August. So that will be our one and only appearance.''
