Stone Roses: 'no comment' on third album recording rumours
NME reported today (March 24) that a press representative for The Stone Roses has responded to reports that the band are currently recording their third album in London.
The band have been spotted at Paul Epworth's Church Studios in Crouch End, north London. One fan stated on social media that the group told her that new music could be coming "before June", however both Mani and John Squire allegedly denied this by telling another punter in a pub nearby that they were merely "rehearsing for gigs". It is worth noting that Church Studios is primarily a recording studio, not a rehearsal space.
NME took a trip to the studio in North London on Wednesday night (March 23) where Reni (real name Alan Wren) eventually turned up outside to pose for pictures with fans and sign autographs. When asked by NME if the band were recording a new album, he joked: "I'm recording," before adding: ."I can't tell you anything because I'll get my arse kicked"
However, a representative for the band has now replied to NME's request for a response to the reports, saying "There's no comment. Sorry not to be more help."
