Video: The Replacements debut new song – and have written several more


If you've been begging for new material from The Replacements since they ended their two decade hiatus in 2013, you've finally got your wish.

The Minneapolis-based alt-rock gods has been debuting a new song on its national tour the AV Club reports, and you can check out their version at the Hollywood Palladium here.

Called "Whole Foods Blues" the AV Club describes it as a "gloriously tongue-in-cheek" song about shopping at the nationwide fresh foods chain.

As Consequence of Sound writes: "The song isn’t the most serious thing in the world, but it’s still a new Replacements song, so who’s complaining?"

And the band's co-manager Darren Hill told Bloomberg that two recording sessions have yielded even more new songs – seven or eight by his count – but was circumspect when asked whether they are likely to be released.

"It's just a question of what the bands wants to ultimately do with them," he said.

The band is in the midst of a 12-city, 13 date tour which unfortunately didn't include another hometown gig to follow-up on the roaring success of their sellout show at Midway Stadium in September, 23 years after they last played in the Twin Cities in 1991.

However, they will make a return to the Midwest in the next week, with shows in Chicago and Milwaukee.

The Star Tribune notes that the band will also shortly be releasing two vinyl box sets spanning the group's complete discography.
