LONDON, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, the two surviving members of The Who, have agreed to revive the band for the coming year and beyond.

Townshend is currently involved in setting up a team to do a 5.1 remix of "Quadrophenia," which will be released along similar lines to the upcoming "Tommy" release.

An extended version is also planned for the same release, opening the story up for future theatrical and DVD versions.

Townshend's main creative work will be songs for a new Who album. These will be based on his story, now complete, "The Boy Who Heard Music."

He and Daltrey plan to demo the new material before the end of the year prior to going into record the album in March 2004. This will be the band's first studio album since 1982's "It's Hard."

The proposed release date for the album is early next summer with a U.S. and British tour to follow.
