Girlschool are a British rock band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978 and frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead. They are the longest running all-female rock band, still active after more than 35 years.Formed from a school band called Painted Lady, Girlschool enjoyed strong media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the early 1980s with three albums of ‘punk-tinged metal’ and a few singles, but lost their momentum in the following years.
In the 1990s and 2000s, they focused on shows and tours and did few studio albums. During their career, Girlschool travelled the world, playing in many rock and metal festivals and co-headlining with or supporting important hard rock and heavy metal bands. They maintain a worldwide cult following and are an inspiration for many female rock musicians.Despite frequent changes of line-up, original members Kim McAuliffe, Enid Williams and Denise Dufort are still in the band. The only original member no longer in the band, lead guitarist and singer Kelly Johnson, died of cancer in 2007
Girlschool released their 13th studio album GUILTY AS SIN on the 13th November 2015 produced and recorded by Chris Tsangerides at his Ecology Room studio in Kent and remastered by Tim Hamill at Sonic One Studios in Llangennech, Wales.
November/December 2015 saw Girlschool go on tour in Europe with Saxon on Motorhead’s 40th Anniversary tour. The tour was meant to hit the UK in January 2016 with more European gigs to follow but sadly Lemmy passed away at his home in Los Angeles on the 28th December 2015
