Stone Roses' Representative Remains Silent On Split Rumours

Subscribe to Stone Roses alerts

A representative for British rockers the Stone Roses has fuelled rumours suggesting the band is preparing to split again by refusing to comment on the break-up reports.

A user on discussion forum I Am Without Shoes Too posted a message on the blog on Monday (19May14), claiming he had received insider information suggesting the Fools Gold hitmakers will officially reveal plans to disband next week (begs26May14).

The note read in part: "Just had word from a friend who works at (their label) Universal Records and announcement will be made next week regarding the bands (sic) future. Says the band's representatives and Universal's are working on ending the contract and the guys (are) going their separate ways..."

Frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield and drummer Alan 'Reni' John Wren have remained silent on the split speculation, and now a spokesperson for the group has also failed to put a stop to the gossip.

When approached for a response by editors, the representative declined, simply stating, "No comment".

The news emerges eight months after rumours surfaced alleging the Stone Roses were working on new material, with Mani raising fans' hopes of a 2015 release by saying, "Yeah we've been working on a few bits... 2015 man, 2015!"

The rockers reformed in 2011, 15 years after their original split, and embarked on a global comeback tour which kept them on the road throughout 2012 and 2013.
