The Replacements to release covers EP, possibly reuniting

The Replacements

Last month, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson of the Replacements regrouped in a Minneapolis studio to record four covers, which will be released in the form of a limited edition 10-inch. The pressing will produce 250 vinyl copies to be auctioned off online. All proceeds from the release will go to the band's former guitarist Slim Dunlap ('87-'91) who suffered a severe stroke last February.

According to Westerberg, who was speaking with Rolling Stone, drummer Chris Mars didn't want any part of the session. When asked about the possibility of a reunion tour and/or album, Westerberg stated: "It's possible... After playing with Tommy last week, I was thinking, 'All right, let's crank it up and knock out a record like this.' I'm closer to it now than I was two years ago, let's say that."
