Blossoms ANNOUNCE EXTENSIVE UK HEADLINE TOUR FOR EARLY 2015

THE BAND WILL RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘CUT ME AND I’LL BLEED’ ON MARCH 2

“Manchester’s Blossoms offer a lighter take on psychedelia, one that’s steeped in classic British pop songwriting” – NME

 
“Their effortless, flowing, woozy, guitar pop is perfect” – Louder Than War

“the kind of band that might just get their hometown into the charts” – Music Week

Psyche-pop riffs, vocal melodies, a film noir meets 60s aesthetic, a range of audible references from Arctic Monkeys via Abba to The Doors – Blossoms are Stockport’s newest (and arguably finest) musical export.

Blossoms have announced a huge UK headline tour that begins at the end of January, and runs through the whole of February and March, ending with dates at London’s Camden Barfly and Manchester Gorilla. Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 17th December.

Blossoms will release their psych-pop infused new single ‘Cut Me And I’ll Bleed’ on March 2nd through Skeleton Key Records. The track was produced by The Coral’s James Skelly at Parr St Studios in Liverpool and comes with a live version of ‘The Urge’ on B-side. The single will be available on download and a limited edition 7” vinyl.

The Liverpool / Manchester collaboration came about after Skelly saw one of the band’s early tracks, “You Pulled A Gun On Me” and invited them to his studio.  The band said:

“James Skelly from The Coral saw it [You Pulled A Gun On Me], loved it and was like, ‘You’s are f***ing boss. Come & jam with me’. When the man who who’s written some of the greatest guitar tunes in the last 10 years, invites you down the M62 to go to his house for tea, first you pinch yourself and then you ask, ‘do you want us to bring some dessert?’ and get down there.”

All five band members; Tom Ogden (Vocals/Guitar), Charlie Salt (Bass), Josh Dewhurst (Guitar), Joe Donovan (Drums) & Myles Kellock (Keys) live in Stockport and all played in several different local bands until, in their words, they “formed a, sort of, Stockport supergroup”.

The band released their debut single ‘Blow’ earlier this year. Watch the video here –
