Atomic Kitten is a reformed English pop girl group, formed by Andy McCluskey in 1998, hailing from Liverpool, England, United Kingdom.

Frontman Andy McCluskey of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark formed Atomic Kitten in 1998 with a line-up consisting of Liz McClarnon, Kerry Katona, and Heidi Range. Atomic Kitten’s earliest songs were principally written my McCluskey including the No. 10 UK single “Right Now” released in November 1999. Prior to the release, Heidi Range left the group citing artistic differences and moved to the fellow pop charting group the Sugababes, replaced by Natasha Hamilton.

The group’s subsequent single “See Ya” proved an even greater success reaching No. 6 in the UK single chart, followed by their first No. 1 hit in Japan “Cradle”, which led to a tour of the UK and parts of Asia. Atomic Kitten’s debut album “Right Now” arrived in October 2000, spawning the two further singles “I Want Your Love” and “Follow Me”. The single “Whole Again” became the group’s first No. 1 single in the UK, along with 18 other countries, including a 27 week stint at the top of the charts in the Republic of Moldova.

Due to pregnancy Kerry Katona left the group following the release and was replaced by former Precious singer Jenny Frost. With the swap, the album “Right Now” was re-packaged, re-recorded and re-released including the songs “Eternal Flame” another No. 1 hit, “You Are” and “Tomorrow & Tonight”, and was later certified as double platinum.

With the success of “Right Now” Atomic Kitten recorded and released “Feels So Good” in 2002, half way through of which Andy McCluskey departed due to an increase in tension between him and the band. The album spawned the singles “It’s Okay”, “The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling)”, “The Last Goodbye” and “Love Doesn’t Have To Hurt”. By this time the group were attracting a buzz in the U.S., often drawing comparisons with The Supremes and the Spice Girls for having over a dozen singles hit the No. 1 spot in the charts.

The group made their U.S. debut with a self-titled album released in April 2003, which turned out to be unsuccessful and led the group to focus on European, South African and Asian markets. Atomic Kitten’s subsequent album “Ladies Night” was released in November 2003 featuring the single of the same name; a collaborative duet with the band Kool & the Gang. The album peaked at No. 5 in the UK album chart and was later certified platinum, spawning the singles “Be With You” and “If You Come To Me”.

After the subsequent tour and the release of their “Greatest Hits” album, Hamilton left the group to focus on her family. In 2012, however, the group, including Hamilton and Katona, reunited for a summer tour. The band later announced they were returning to the studio to record new material and toured alongside East 17 and All Saints in 2014.
