Are the Stone Roses about to release a new album?

Social media is wild with speculation that indie pop legends the Stones Roses are about to make a big announcement.

Are the Stone Roses about to release a new album?

Rumours of a new album or single have been doing the rounds for weeks and with a string of tour dates for 2016 already announced it seems something is afoot in the Mancunian band's camp.

Lemons, the symbol of the Stone Roses with some appearing on the cover of their seminal 1989 debut album, have started to appear on billboards and advertising screens across the UK.

While their self-titled debut album is regularly voted as one of the best of all-time, their 1995 follow-up, 'The Second Coming' was met with a mixed critical and fan response on its release.

Could it be the third coming of Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani and Reni?

The band is set to play Marlay Park in Dublin this summer. The last time the Roses visited Ireland was as part of their comeback tour in 2012 at Phoenix Park.
