Blossoms Announce Stockport Premiere For Ribbon Around The Bomb Film And Live Show

Wednesday, 06 April 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Blossoms have shared details of a film based around their upcoming LP, 'Ribbon Around The Bomb'.

The Stockport quintet will release their fourth album on April 29, followed a week later by a special event at their hometown's Plaza Theatre, where they'll premiere an accompanying film, also called Ribbon Around The Bomb, directed by Arctic Monkeys' creative director Edwin Burdis. 

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on April 7. Blossoms' Tom Ogden commented:

"What a joy it was making this film with Edwin Burdis. It was also great to work with my cousin Daniel Rigby, a BAFTA award-winning actor, who brilliantly plays The Writer who is trying to put on his new play Ribbon Around The Bomb. Edwin’s unique style and vision really took the film to surreal corners, using editing techniques I’ve never come across before! The outcome is a quirky, dream-like film that we absolutely love."

Burdis added: "We created a script for this film so that we could rip it up…It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Blossoms and such diversely talented practitioners and performers on this project. The Stockport Plaza was a joy to work in and it very much became an unexpected central character of the piece. Whilst a lot of time and care went into crafting the script, the cast and crew had full permission to improvise, which really allowed creativity to flow."

They'll also play two previously announced album launch sets at Manchester's Band On The Wall on April 30. The summer will see them appear at various festivals, including Y Not?Truck Festival, and Glastonbury, alongside dates supporting The Killers. They'll also visit Kingston to play at Pryzm for Banquet Records.

The singles already unveiled from the record include The Sulking Poet, Ode To NYC, Care For and its title track.

Blossoms Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Sat April 30 2022 - MANCHESTER Band on the Wall
Tue May 03 2022 - STOCKPORT Plaza
Thu May 05 2022 - KINGSTON UPON THAMES PRYZM Kingston
