The Pop/Rock sister duo Aly & AJ ( Alyson, 20, and Amanda Joy, 18) most known from Disney, recently went for a name change which was announced earlier this month. The sisters who just recently completed a new album explained the reasoning behind their name change and what it means.
According to Alyson Michalka, the 7 and 8 are their lucky numbers and voilet is their alter ego.
78Violet reportedly represents everything that is going on with them now and the changes that they have gone through.
Alyson goes on to state that they don’t care if no one likes the name, stating “this is us” and they haven’t changed as individuals, this is just a new turning point.
As for the album, Alyson says you should be expecting a newer Aly & AJ.
78violet’s self-titled album is expected to release at the end of 2009 or early 2010.
