Is there anything to the rumors?
NME reports that The Stone Roses are refusing to comment on the rumors of the band splitting up on Louder Than War. According to the rumor, the band is preparing to split up.
Louder Than War is a music site run by The Stone Roses' friend and biographer John Robb. A post on the I Am Without Shoes Too discussion forum reads: "Just had word from a friend who works at Universal Records and announcement will be made next week regarding the bands future. Says the band's representatives and Universal's are working on ending the contract and the guys going their separate ways. According to a band source after all the gigs were finished trying to recreate magic between four very different entities as compared to their earlier incarnation just didn't work. The usual obligatory band statement will conclude with them all remaining good friends and ending for good The Stone Roses."
A spokesperson from the band declined to add anything to the rumor, saying, "No comment."
The band previously reformed in 2011 after breaking up in 1996.
