According to a press release, “One of the most influential bands to ever come out of the UK, The Stone Roses, surprised the world in 2012 by reuniting after 16 years apart. Best known for their smash debut album, the eponymous ‘The Stone Roses’, the band has taken their reunion a step further by allowing longtime fan and acclaimed director, Shane Meadows, intimate access into their world. THE STONE ROSES: MADE OF STONE is a revealing documentary about the life and times of one of the most revered bands in British music history. The band also headlined this year’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California, in front of thousands of adoring fans.”

“Featuring never-before-seen footage, a cameo by a gushing Liam Gallagher (Oasis), as well as rare glimpses into the personal moments between bandmates, Meadows brings unparalleled access to the record-breaking, sell-out tour and reunion concerts that took place in the spring & summer of 2012. The film culminates in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park, in front of 220,000 fans.”

BAFTA award-winning director Meadows, a lifelong fan of the band, muses “I know what it’s like to miss out on a Stone Roses gig and I know that a lot of the North American fans have been waiting to view this film since the summer, so I’m just glad we can finally share the film with them all. Throughout filming, my love for the music has just grown and grown and to be party to watching something grow is a real privilege. What I saw in those first rehearsals blew my mind, and yet when I returned a month later it was even better.”
