Guitarist/singer Susanna
Hoffs, guitarist/singer Vicki Peterson and
drummer/singer Debbi Peterson – aka The Bangles – will release
their first album of new material in nearly eight years on September 13 via Model Music Group. 

 

The title, appropriately
enough, is Sweetheart of the Sun and
will reportedly reprise the band’s trademark “sunny SoCal harmonies and Beatles/Byrds/Beach
Boys/Big Star godhead.”

 

Not along for the ride this
time is Michael Steele, who was on hand during the group’s hitmaking years
during the ‘80s; she split in 2005 (the group had broken up around the dawn of
the ‘90s but got back together in ’98 and have toured on and off since then,
performing their hits on the nostalgia circuit. Abby Travis replaced Steele but
for some reason is not listed as an “official member” of the group.
