Blossoms UK Tour & Album
Following the release of their highly-anticipated debut album, out August 5th, Blossoms will embark on a headline UK tour, taking in 11 venues across the country including London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town and The Academy in Manchester.
Ahead of the tour, Blossoms will perform a hometown show at the Stockport Plaza at midnight on August 5th (Thursday night!). The band also recently announced two special album launch shows at Manchester’s Gorilla, one of which will be a matinee performance, on Sunday August 7th – the shows sold out in just 3 minutes.
“Massive riffs and surging singable choruses that’ll make you feel 10ft tall”. – NME
“Mancunian pop perfection” – Shortlist
The forthcoming self-titled album was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, produced by the band’s sonic mentor, The Coral’s James Skelly and Rich Turvey. The pair produced early EPs Blown Rose and Charlemagne (No 1 in iTunes Alternative Chart as well Christmas No 1 in the UK Vinyl Chart), their first release of 2016 – the dark future-glam of At Most A Kiss (No.1 in the iTunes chart) and current radio hit ‘Getaway’ (playlisted across Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, Radio X and Absolute).
Band member, Tom Ogden, says;
“James has been really important for us, He can listen to one of our songs and instinctively know what bits to push forward. He’s got an amazing ear for a good pop melody. He just brings out our best, and makes it a little bit weird in the mix as only he can. Being fans of The Coral anyway, having him produce our debut album is a perfect marriage.”
Blossoms are currently performing at festivals across Europe and have already appeared at Glastonbury, Field Day, Bilbao BBK, Rock Werchter, The Great Escape, T in the Park, Parklife and Isle of Wight Festival. The band will also be appearing at Reading and Leeds, Kendal Calling, Festival No.6 and more.
