The Stone Roses are officially broken up…again

Silvertone RecordsHugely influential British band The Stone Roses have once again called it quits.

In an interview with The Guardian, guitarist John Squire was asked if the beloved English rock outfit was truly done. He simply replied, "Yeah."

When asked about his relationship with Stone Roses vocalist Ian Brown, Squire explained that the band had made a pact not to talk about that, adding, "...and I'm going to honor that."

The Stone Roses are known for singles including "Love Spreads," "She Bangs the Drums" and "I Wanna Be Adored."  They released two albums -- 1989's self-titled debut and 1994's Second Coming -- before breaking up in 1996. They then reunited in 2011 for a run of tour dates, and in 2016, they released two new songs: "All for One" and "Beautiful Thing."

The last show The Stone Roses played was in June 2017. During the concert, Brown declared, "Don't be sad that it's over, be happy that it happened," leading to speculation that the group had indeed broken up once more.
