Blossoms To Play Special Launch Show At Stockport Plaza at Midnight on August 5th For The Bands Self Titled Debut Album Released The Same Day
Blossoms will celebrate the release of their highly anticipated debut album at the Stockport Plaza. Fans who pre-order a copy of the album via the official store by midnight on Wednesday 14th July will be in with a chance of seeing Blossoms play a special home town show at Stockport Plaza at midnight on 5th August (Thursday night)! Full details on the official store. Tickets limited to 2 per person.
“The Stockport band’s cathartic sing-alongs hark back to the region’s pop greats.” The Guardian
“Mancunian pop perfection” Shortlist
“Minor key moodiness with the kind of bravado not seen since the glory days of The Stone Roses and The La’s” The Times
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.
Blossoms have been carefully carving out their position in the canon of Great British Rock’n’Roll ever since the start of the year where they were listed as No. 4 on The BBC Sound Poll list and tipped as ‘ones to watch’ on countless other lists.
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). “James has been really important for us,” says Ogden. “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.”
Taken from the debut album, ‘My Favourite Room’ is now available as a download for anyone who pre-orders the album. Watch the band perform an acoustic version of the song at The Great Escape earlier this year here
Having sold out shows at London’s Scala and Manchester’s Albert Hall Blossoms are currently performing at Festivals up and down the country as well as in Europe. Having already performed at Glastonbury, Field Day, 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.
