Coinciding with their recently announced reunion dates, the British rockers will finally release a follow-up to 1994's 'Second Coming.'
The Stone Roses
The English alt-rockers' long-awaited third album will reportedly arrive around the same time as their upcoming reunion gigs.
When life hands you lemon posters, it apparently means a Stone Roses reunion is happening.
The apex of the Stone Roses' short career seems to have occurred in 1990, when they played to some 8,000 fans inside a giant tent at Glasgow Green, 25 years ago.
When the Stone Roses released their self-titled debut album in 1989, they were generally hailed as rock ‘n’ roll saviors by both British fans and press hungry for something new. Borrowing a little bit from late-‘60s psychedelia, late-‘70s post-punk and the druggy alt-rock swirl of their contemporaries, the Manchester-based quartet scored big with near-epic songs like ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ and ‘She Bangs the Drums.’
Much like fellow British rockers Blur, who recently announced plans to continue their comeback tour into next year, the Stone Roses have revealed their intention to keep their reunion rolling into 2013. The Roses, who reunited in May to play their first shows in more than 15 years, have lined up gigs at the Future Music Festivale in Australia next March.
The Stone Roses' reunion concerts over the summer in their hometown of Manchester, England, have set a Guinness World Record for the fastest selling rock concerts in U.K. history. Tickets for the three gigs in Manchester's Heaton Park at the end of June and beginning of July certainly sold at a swift pace, and all 220,000 were gone in a mere 68 minutes.
