The Replacements gearing up for new album?

Replacements 2013

Rumours are rife that The Replacements are planning a new studio album.

It would be their first since 1990’s All Shook Down and, according to Rolling Stone, the Minneapolis legends already have several songs written.

Frontman Paul Westerberg has apparently revealed two new song titles, including “Are You In It For The Money?” and “Dead Guitar Player”, perhaps a reference to the group’s original lead guitarist, Bob Stinson, who died in 1995.

Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson last year teamed up with drummer Josh Freese and guitarist Dave Minehan for a set of North American dates, including a headline slot at April’s Coachella and RiotFest.

Replacements confirm reunion lineup

ReplacementsReunionThe Replacements have confirmed the lineup for what will be their first live shows together in 22 years. The first gig will take place in Toronto next Sunday, 25th August.

Founder members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson announced in June that they would play some reunion shows as The Replacements for the first time since 1991. They will be joined by drummer Josh Freese and guitarist Dave Minehan.

Freese and Stinson have already played together as part of the Guns N Roses lineup that toured and recorded in the late 90s, and Freese and Minehan have played with Westerberg as part of his solo shows in the early 90s.

The Toronto gig is one of a three-show headlining slot as part of the American alternative rock roadshow, Riot Fest. The second leg comes in Chicago on September 15th and the third in Denver on September 21st.
