The Replacements’ 1985 album Tim will receive a 4CD/1LP reissue this fall that will feature a new mix of the record, a bevy of previously unreleased alternate takes and more.
The Replacements — as they’re wont to do — have been teasing something on social media over the past couple days, tweeting a photo of tape reels on Wednesday and, on Thursday, an image of Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson with the date “7/23/19.” Check out the full tracklist right here.
Singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield, the onetime member of the Blake Babies who saw breakout alt-rock success in the early ’90s, will pay tribute to one of her own favorites with a collection of covers of songs by Olivia Newton-John, the chart-topper who starred in the film version of “Grease.” Check out the full tracklist.
Leave it to Paul Westerberg to go off-schedule: After a string of Saturday song drops via his anonymous Soundcloud account, the former Replacement snuck out this week’s new song early, releasing “Come Hither,” a rollicking ode to morning coffee, last Wednesday. Stream it right here.
After dropping three new songs over the last three Saturdays, Paul Westerberg today doubled up, releasing the electric rocker “Dead Sick Of” via his anonymous Soundcloud account, plus a cover of Hank Williams’ “Someday You’ll Call My Name.” Listen to both right here.
For the third Saturday in a row, Paul Westerberg has released a new song via his anonymous Soundcloud account — and this time it’s a twangy, acoustic shuffle called “Felin’ Good” that’s the most conventional of the batch of new songs he’s released over the course of this month. Stream it here.
As The Replacements build suspense about something “coming soon,” Paul Westerberg today released the second new song in a week from his own mysterious new project, a bouncy pop number called “Got it Made” that rides along on synths and a simple drum-machine beat. Listen to the full track here.
Two years after their reunion fizzled out, The Replacements’ sporadically used Twitter and Facebook accounts recently began teasing… well, something… by sharing photos of the band performing in 1986 — the most recent of which bore the caption “Coming soon.” What’s it all mean?
Paul Westerberg slipped an odd, seemingly home-recorded new song titled “2HAWK_1” out into the world early this week via an anonymous Soundcloud account that may just be the precursor to a new album from the once-again-former frontman of The Replacements. Hear the full song here.
We’re thrilled today to debut a new partnership with the “Rockin’ the Suburbs” podcast that will bring exclusive, uncut versions of their interviews with musicians of the ’80s college rock era to Slicing Up Eyeballs. And who better to inaugurate the whole thing than Tommy Stinson of The Replacements.
Finally, a real tour: The Replacements — having performed festival dates and a handful of one-offs since reuniting in 2013 — today announced a 13-date U.S. tour this spring that will find the band performing at theater-sized venues across the country. The U.S. dates will precede the band’s trip to Europe.
Perhaps fittingly, The Replacements capped off last night’s triumphant hometown gig — their first in 23 years, and the band’s first non-festival date since reuniting last summer — with a performance of fan favorite “Unsatisfied,” the first time the Let It Be classic has been dusted off since the ‘Mats got back together.
