They may have been "damaged," but these former Danity Kane members figured out how to "fix it."
Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex announced a new chapter in their career, banding together as the duo Dumblonde. The two revealed the news on Sunday before making an appearance at the iHeart Radio Music Awards.
"We went through ten years of Danity Kane to bring us to this point," the girls told us on the red carpet. "And we are so thankful for our past and we are so excited about our future."
DK, who got their start on MTV's "Making The Band," officially called it quits last August after a physical fight broke out between O'Day and former member Dawn Richard. This happened nearly one year after the group announced their comeback at the 2013 Video Music Awards. Dawn recently dropped her own solo album, Blackheart, earlier this year.
And it seems like the girls, who are releasing an EP next month, are leaving the past in the past, flaunting a new look and sound that will make you want to jump to your feet and dance.
"We're going to have a ton of content for our fans and really show them a new era, a new sound," Aubrey said. "We've been taking from the past-- a lot of 70s, 80s references-- bringing it into the future with current sounds of dance and alternative music. Our new sound is more similar to The Ting Tings, La Roux. So we're taking an alternative dance route. That's what felt comfortable and natural to us."
