1-2-3-4 Go! have announced their plans for an upcoming tribute to The Replacements. While a hard date has not been set, the label is aiming for a summer release. They had this to say about the project:
Against Me!, This is My Fist, Whiskey Sunday, Drag The River, The Obsoletes, The Tim Version, North Lincoln, Thomas Barnett/Rob Huddleston (Holy shit! Inquisition semi-reunion sort of but not really!), Hi Ho Six Shooter, Off With Their Heads and The Modern Machines have already recorded and turned in their songs. There's a whoooole lot of other people who are recording in the next month or two but I'm not one to count chickens before they hatch. Well I am, but I'm trying not to. This is obviously going to be fucking amazing.
The Replacements formed in 1979 and released seven albums. The band, along with HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ and Soul Asylum helped define the then fledgling Minneapolis punk rock scene with its distinctive and influential sound.
