Members of the Posies and Mercury Rev have formed a new group called Tears of Silver and covered an Al Kooper classic.
The Posies endured the tragic losses of two bandmates in the past year. Now they're reemerging with renewed purpose.
The power-pop veterans will return with a album this May, and in the meantime, they have announced tour plans and shared the earwormy lead single "Unlikely Places."
Big Star's Jody Stephens has planned another tribute concert to the power-pop outfit's 'Third/Sister Lovers,' and Jeff Tweedy, Mike Mills and more will make appearances.
The Seattle scene fixture died over the weekend following a two-year battle with prostate cancer.
The Posies guitarist and vocalist Ken Stringfellow: "He was at home. He was loved very much by many people; we're still struggling to cope with the loss."
