The girl group called it quits in 2001, but are now back with new album ‘Red Flag’.
All Saints are back with their first new album since 2009 and let’s hope this time around the foursome are getting along better.

“We are really looking forward to performing together as guests of the Backstreet Boys on their tour. We can't wait,” they said in a statement announcing their reunion. "We're singing a lot of big songs like Never Ever and Pure Shores which will be amazing.”
