The Bangles, who’ve been going strong since reforming in the early ’00s, released a digital-only compilation of ’80s-era rarities, demos, live recordings and more, including their debut single when they were still called The Bangs. That comp, titled Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bangles, will be out via Omnivore Recordings on June 24, 2016. Watch a trailer for the compilation and check out artwork and tracklist, below.

Prince, who sadly passed away last week, wrote their hit “Manic Monday,” which was #3 on Billboard this week in 1986 (Prince’s “Kiss” was #1).

The Bangles also appeared on Gilmore Girls shortly after reuniting, like many others. Gilmore Girls returns this year on Netflix, hopefully with some equally great musical cameos.

Watch a clip of The Bangles in Gilmore Girls and listen to “Manic Monday” below.
