Known for their smash 80s hit, “True,” Spandau Ballet broke up for 20 years — but they’re back!

The British band just put out their first single in 30 years and stopped by Dish Nation‘s Los Angeles studio to chat with hosts Heidi Hamilton and Frank Kramer about what it was like to be one of the most successful groups of the New Romantic era, and why the band reunited.

Composed of drummer John Keeble, lead singer Tony Hadley, guitarist Gary Kemp, bass player Martin Kemp and saxophonist Steve Norman, they’ve just released a greatest hits album along with a new documentary coming out, Soul Boys of the Western World.

“It’s a documentary covering the band’s very emotional journey…I don’t know if you know, but we split up for 20 years, which is rather a long time, ” Hadley said. “So it’s kind of like a historical journey really.”

“One hell of a ride,” Keeble chimed in.

Now that they’ve reunited, the band will also be touring the U.S. for the first time in 30 years.

“We were on a plane just coming from Australia and the hostess comes over and she says, ‘I’ve gotta tell you,’ she said, ‘You’ve got a gift from god, your voice,’ and then she said, ‘I’ve made love to so many fellas to your True.”

“She said this to me,” Gary said. “And I gotta tell you, really great love.”

“She’s about 70,” Hadley joked.
