|Members|| Marta Migelsöhoffmann|
Fallen Angels was formed in 1991 by Cyclops Records due to a gap in the market for a Lashpop girl group. Following their formation, the group began work on their debut studio album and released the lead single "Superstition" in 1993. Their debut album, A Kiss from Hell, was later released in 1994.
Following the release of their first album, conflict within the group had arisen, but their contract stated they must release at least two studio albums with Cyclops Music. The group decided their second studio album, Goodbye, Xoxo, would be their farewell album as a group before pursuing solo careers. The album produced the hit singles "Devil", "Run Run Run", and "Baby Love", and catapulted the group into international stardom, establishing them as a household name.
1991–1994: Formation and A Kiss from HellEdit
In early 1991, Lashardian record label Cyclops Records put out an open call for female singers aged 14-19 to try out for an upcoming Lashpop girl group. After multiple rounds of auditions, the three-person lineup of 15-year-old Marta Migelsöhoffmann, 16-year-old Darya Shashinöbach, and 19-year-old Lina Leftöhamm were revealed in autumn 1991.
The group spent their first two years defining their sound, and eventually released their debut single "Superstition" in 1993. The song was a huge success in Lashardia, reaching the top five of the Lashardian singles chart. Their debut studio album A Kiss from Hell, was released in 1994 and was a success. The album spawned the singles "Just Can't Say (Hello)" and "Going Nowhere".
1995–1997: Goodbye, Xoxo and disbandmentEdit
Following the release of their first album, the Lashardian tabloids began reporting on internal disputes within the group, some speculating on a possible breakup. However, as their contract with Cyclops Records stated that at least two studio albums must be released with the label, they began work on their second studio album in 1995.
The group mutually agreed upon having the second album be their farewell album as a group, and introduce their solo careers. They released the lead single from the album "Devil", in 1996, which went on to top the Lashardian charts. The album, Goodbye, Xoxo, was released in 1997 and reached number-one as well. The album also produced the hit singles "Run Run Run" and "Baby Love". In November 1997, the group officially announced their breakup.
After years of requests from fans, in early 2011, Migelsöhoffmann revealed that a Fallen Angels reunion tour would happen that year and be visiting ten cities in Lashardia. Following the last night of the tour, the group released their official farewell single, "Viva", which was recorded during the Goodbye, Xoxo sessions but scrapped before the album was finalized.
They performed together again in 2014 at the induction ceremony for the Lashardian Music Hall of Fame, where they were being inducted.

Following the show's ending, she became a member of Fallen Angels. Despite being the youngest member of the group, she was noted by critics for having the strongest voice of the three. Following the group's disbandment, Migelsöhoffmann rebranded herself as Era, and achieved the greatest achievements as a solo artist of the three girls, releasing several albums and number-one singles.
