Several previously unseen photos of The Replacements are featured in a new book on the Minneapolis rockers, USA Today reports.

Voyageur Press recently released the photo book "The Replacements: Waxed Up Hair & Painted Shoes -- The Photographic History," which features images of the group from 1979 to 1991.

According to the publisher, the 160-page "Photographic History" features "a rich repository of images snapped for alt-weeklies, fanzines and college newspapers and which, in a pre-Internet age, never saw the light of day outside of the cities in which they were shot."

The book also includes essays by Jim Walsh, who penned the 2007 oral history of the band, "All Over But the Shouting."

The Replacements' renaissance began this summer when band members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson announced in June that they would be playing three reunion gigs at RiotFest concerts in Toronto, Chicago and Denver.

Last month, the group was nominated for the 2014 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Organizers will announce next month which acts will be enshrined.

On Monday, the band released a two-disc benefit CD “Rockin’ Here Tonight: A Benefit Compilation for Slim Dunlap.” The proceeds will go to benefit former Replacements guitarist Dunlap, who suffered a debilitating stroke in February 2012.

The compilation features songs from the group as well as several other artists including Jeff Tweedy, Vanessa Carlton and Jakob Dylan.
