Listen to The Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

The Rolling Stones are prepping fans for a special announcement.  The group launched a countdown on their website last Friday, with the message "5 Days & Counting..." along with a live video of their new song "Doom and Gloom." 

On Saturday the band posted "4 Days & Counting..." along with an image of their lips and tongue logo with the phrase "Start Me Up #STARTMEUPWEDNESDAY."  Sunday's "3 Days & Counting" message featured "#StartMeUpWednesday is coming...," along with a live video of "Sympathy for the Devil" and the web address 

Meanwhile, via their official Twitter page the Stones tweeted a link to their Tumblr site which is playing a 58-second film of band song titles and lyrics. 

The Stones are expected to announce an upcoming North American tour.  Last month reported that the band had struck a deal with AEG Live to stage an 18-date arena trek later this spring, with the details set to be unveiled in early April.
