Seminal British indie-rock band, The Stone Roses, are set to release their first album for over 20 years, claims a new report.
The album will follow up 1994’s ‘Second Coming’, and is reportedly set to be released this summer to coincide with their tour dates, including four headline shows at the Etihad Stadium in their hometown of Manchester.
According to The Mirror, a source said: “Ian Brown and the lads have been busy getting their next album ready. It will be album number three. It’s a long time coming but they feel the time is right now. They’ve been back in the studio. Everyone is very excited about it.”
However, according to NME, a spokesperson for the band said there is no comment on the report. So it’s a matter of time until we know for certain whether there will be a third coming for The Stone Roses.
The Stone Roses were one of the pioneers of the Madchester movement that was active during the late 80’s and early 90’s, which was a music scene out of Manchester that mixed alternative rock, psychedelic rock and acid house music, which was the popular electronic music at the time. The band are widely regarded as one of the best and most influential British indie-rock groups, and went on to influence numerous other artists, most notably Oasis.
Here are the band’s current tour dates below for this summer:
June 2, 3 – Tokyo, Nippon Budokhan
June 15, 17, 18, 19 – Manchester, Etihad Stadium
June 30 – New York, Madison Square Garden
July 8 – T in the Park Festival
July 9 – Dublin, Marlay Park
