While Keanu Reeves is known worldwide today as one of the most famed actors in Hollywood, he actually once had a previous career.
In May, a black-and-white photo of the band with a city backdrop was posted to the band's Instagram account confirming their return.
The caption to the post read: "Last set up on the roof in Lincoln Heights for @dogstarband photo shoot. Exciting news coming soon. Thanks for being so patient."
While at the time the band didn't announce any new music, fans were just happy to see the group were still friends.
Now, the three-piece band comprising of Reeves, vocalist Bret Domrose, and drummer Rob Mailhouse have confirmed a new album is on the way alongside a tour.
On Tuesday (18 July), Dogstar did perform at The Roxy in Hollywood, though fans suspected that was just a one off performance.
But they couldn't have been more wrong, as Dogstar will kick off their headline tour in North America and Japan next month, with fans able to purchase tickets from Friday (21 July).
Alongside a photo of their upcoming records cover, the band wrote on Instagram: "WE ARE BACK!!! Thank you to everyone who came out to The Roxy last night…
"We are so excited to announce our new album Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees out on October 6th on our label Dillon Street Records.
"Next month, we kick off our 25+ date headline tour in North America & Japan. Get tickets this Friday at 10am local time."
The band also released the album's lead single, 'Everything Turns Around', with the group calling it a 'fun summer song'.
"It has an uplifting message and a positive vibe that hopefully makes your day a little bit lighter," they said.
"It’s one of our favourite songs to play live and can’t wait to share it on our upcoming tour."
Dogstar was originally active from 1991 to 2002, with them actually doing many live performances in that time.
However, it wasn't all good for the group and Reeves, being pelted with 'oranges and other fruit' by 'unimpressed audience members' during the band's 1999 Glastonbury set, according to a review from the Guardian.
And in 2002, the group went their separate ways, as Reeves started to make an even bigger name for himself in Hollywood.
