Even though everyone (or just about everyone) in America doesn’t appear to know who the The Stone Roses are, they’re an iconic band in their home country – the U.K. Their reunion meant a lot to the British, especially to documentary filmmaker Shane Meadows (This Is England), who decided to make the four-piece band the main focus of his new film The Stone Roses: Made of Stone. Watch the riveting trailer below.

Fans of animated pop bands that you kinda sorta only enjoy because you miss Blur so badly, rejoice—Gorillaz, despite rumors to the contrary, have not broken after all.

Because teasing me and raising my hopes to Herculean levels and then crushing them brutally by never touring America is his cruel game, Damon Albarn has been dropping hint that Blur may be reuniting for the second time in two years. But, before your hopes start shooting for the sky, according to Spinner, the project will be “small”:

Last week we shared the news of Gorillaz‘s “Escape To Plastic Beach” World Tour which includes a ton of North American dates. However, the when and where details were only recently revealed. As previously mentioned, they’ll be kicking it off on October 3rd in Montreal at the Bell Centre and making sure to stop by the major venues such as New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 8th and Los Angeles’ Gibson Amphitheatre on October 27th.
The Gorillaz frontman also shared his thoughts on how much better their headlining experience at Glastonbury could have gone and give some hope to hard core Blur fans. More details are after the jump!

Lifelong revilers of all things Gallagher brothers, rejoice – NME reports that current Gorillaz frontman/ maybe-still Blur frontman Damon Albarn has stated that, given the success of Blur’s reunion 7” single, “Fool’s Day” (recorded as a limited edition track for Record Store Day), he’d like to leave the door open for more new Blur tracks to be recorded and released in the future. One thing, though—don’t expect an album length reunion, or a slew of tracks to be released anytime soon.

Vinyl fans it is time to rejoice–Record Store Day is upon us tomorrow, that special day when our favorite artists release a dizzying array of obscure or unreleased material on vinyl for their hardcore fans and record fetishists.
Rolling Stone took time out from obsessing/ cultishly worshiping (with goat sacrifices and everything!) every retirement-age rock star within spitting distance to list a few late, but very exciting, additions to Record Store Day release lineup:

When Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon said they’d be more than up for a reunion and perhaps a new album as well, we music geeks who adored the British band in the 90s didn’t know what to do with all the euphoria.
Blur has had a run of successful concerts, but now it sounds like they’ll be following Pavement‘s footsteps where they’ll play for us but remind us that they’re not back together for good. Why, 90′s, oh why do you just come back to tease us?

Blur fans were more than happy to hear about the band’s reunion. It seems like Blur was just happy to see them too. Since their reformation late last year, they’ve been playing tons of comeback shows this summer.
However, what’s greater than having one of your favorite bands from the 90s reunite? A new album, that’s what. According to NME, Blur’s Graham Coxon says he’d be “Up for it, up for doing another. It’d be a really interesting thing to do.”
