The Bangles are backandplan to release their first album in eight years.
Susanna Hoffs and sisters Vicki and Debbie Peterson have teamed up with new label Model Music Group to release Sweetheart of the Sun in September.
The band split in the late 1980s after dominating the charts with hits like Walk Like An Egyptian and Eternal Flame, and officially reformed in 1999 to record Get The Girl for the soundtrack of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, which was directed by Hoffs’ husband Jay Roach.
They released Doll Revolution in 2003 just before bass player Michael Steele quit the band for good. The trio has continued with guest bassists ever since.
