Fans of the 00s girl band rejoice, because Girls Aloud are back – and you only need to wait a few months to hear their new music.
Bandmate Kimberley Walsh revealed that the group will be releasing some new music, and it should be available to fans by May.
Last year marked 20 years since the girl group formed through talent show Popstars: The Rivals.
The spin off of Popstars, which was responsible for forming the 00s hit bands Hear’Say and LibertyX, put band members Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, and Nicola Roberts together to form Girls Aloud, with the girl group going on to win the competition.
The band released music over a 10 year period, with hits including Sound of the Undergroud, The Show, and Call the Shots, and were named the "Most Successful Reality TV Group" in the 2007 edition of Guinness World Records. The group had 21 top 10 singles and four top 10 albums, and amassed millions of fans over the years, becoming one of the most successful British girl groups of the 00s.
After 10 years of making music together, the group disbanded, with many of them going on to pursue solo careers, and officially called it quits on March 20 2013.
However, Kimberley Walsh has now revealed that the band are getting back together to celebrate their legacy, almost exactly 10 years after splitting up and 20 years after forming.
Kimberley, 41, told theMailOnline: "20 years is a long time and the love that we still feel for Sound Of The Underground and some of the songs from the first album are still huge."
The band plan on dropping some new material very soon, with the mum of three teasing that there was only a few months to wait until fans could hear their new releases.
She continued: "We've got some fun alternative versions of songs lying around and little re-releases just to kind of mark that because, you know, it's a big deal," Although the band will be re-releasing alternatives to their biggest hits, Kimberley did confirm they wouldn’t be creating any brand new material as a quartet, following the devastating death of bandmate Sarah Harding in 2021.
Sarah shared in August 2020 that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and that it had advanced to “other parts of her body.” Although she shared that she was determined to fight the disease, in March 2021 she shared that she had been told her cancer was terminal.
On the morning of September 5 2021, it was announced that she had sadly lost her battle with cancer, aged 39. Her bandmates were quick to share emotional, heartfelt tributes to the singer.
Last year the remaining band members re-released a 7 inch vinyl of their debut single Sound of the Underground, with all profits going toThe Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal , a branch of The Christie Charitable Fund.
Kimberley shared what fans can expect from their new releases, saying: "I think there's already been one re-release of Sound Of The Underground with different girls singing different lyrics, which is quite fun.
"I mean, if you're a fan, it's fun, I'm not sure how much fun it is if you're not really into Girls Aloud but yeah, just things like that."
