Nineties babies rejoice! All Saints are making a comeback this year

While the Spice Girls won us over with their girl power anthems, it was All Saints who we would turn to for clever lyrics and edgy fashion (no one else looked that good in combat trousers and vest tops).

So we're incredibly excited to hear they're making a comeback this year.

A new video on the band's YouTube channel announces: "Britain's coolest girl group All Saints are back and better than ever...The girls are set for huge things in 2015 and beyond".

It features a compilation of clips and photographs of the foursome throughout the 90s backed by their anthem "Chick Fit".

The girl group, consisting of Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis and sisters Natalie and Nicole Appleton reunited last year to support the Backstreet Boys on their comeback tour.

They sang their biggest hits from Never Ever to Pure Shores, and went on to play major sets at V Festival and Manchester Pride in 2014. Apart from that, their reunion has been relatively inconspicuous.

The cargo-trouser wearing foursome were one of the most successful pop groups of the 1990s, with nine top ten singles on the UK Singles Chart, including five number-ones. 

Unfortunately, they split up in 2001 after a dispute over a combat jacket in a photoshoot - yes really.

In an interview The GuardianLewis said she had been allotted it for a photo shoot and one of the others wanted it. "I would never in a million years have put money on the group ending over a jacket incident. But when that incident happened, it fired up so strong, it had to be over." 

"The way I was then, the state we'd got into then, there was no way she was getting that stupid jacket," she said at the time.

It's unknown what the girls have planned for their officially return but a new album is expected. Brace yourself for a serious nineties throwback and watch their announcement video below. 

And if that wasn't enough, here are three of their biggest hits...

Never Ever

Pure Shores 

Lady Marmalade
