Happy Mondays - Shaun Ryder: 'Happy Mondays Won't Release New Album'
Recently-reformed British band the Happy Mondays have "absolutely no plans" to record a new album, according to frontman Shaun Ryder.
The group disbanded 19 years ago after Ryder's drug addiction spiralled out of control, but last month (Jan12) they announced plans to reunite for a tour in May (12).
But Ryder is adamant the band will not be putting out a new record to support the trek.
He tells Britain's Real Radio, "There's absolutely no plans at the moment for a new album."
Ryder also used his interview to dismiss speculation the Happy Mondays will be supporting The Stone Roses at their shows in their native Manchester, north-west England in June (12).
He adds, "I'll put this straight; there's no plans, it's absolutely garbage that we are going to be playing at Heaton Park with Stone Roses, that's rubbish."
