Original Sugababes Reform As MKS
The original members of girl group Sugababes will reunite as Mutya Keisha Siobhan or ‘MKS’ for short, after three line-up changes, to perform a headline gig at London’s Scala.
The trio, who formed the group back in 1998, released their debut album ‘Touch’ in 2000 with London Records. Siobhan then left the group before they were dropped by their first label and signed by Island Records along with the introduction of Heidi Range. This line-up achieved a huge amount of success, with three multi-platinum albums and several hit singles including ‘Freak Like Me’, ‘Hole In The Head’ and ‘Round Round’.
Mutya was the next member to leave and was immediately replaced by Amelle Berrabah before the final original member Keisha left in 2011 after 11 years with the group. The current Sugababes line-up has had a nominal amount of success and went on a hiatus in 2012 before announcing the forthcoming release of new material at the end of 2013.
Keisha Mutya Siobhan have already debuted their first single ‘Flatline’ to critical acclaim. Written by the trio, the track has already been streamed 175,000 times and been described by Billboard as "one of the most immediately affecting pop singles of 2013". The Guardian also sings the girls’ praises by noting that they have "vocal ad-libs so on point everyone else might as well just give up".
It has been 12 years since the girls first performed together and their first show under their new name will include both hits and brand new tracks. Tickets for their Scala gig are on sale now priced at £12.50 and their new single ‘Flatline’ is available to pre-order on iTunes ahead of its September 1st release.
