Blossoms: Back To Stockport will be available to stream via Amazon Prime Video on November 8, the day after a 24-hour premiere on YouTube at 8pm GMT.
Directed by their longterm collaborator Charlie Watts, the feature-length will mainly focus on the indie quintet’s huge hometown show at Stockport County Football Club’s Edgeley Park stadium that took place on June 22, 2019.
There will also be behind the scenes footage, live performance clips of songs such as I Can’t Stand It, Your Girlfriend, Blow, My Favourite Room, There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) and Charlemagne, as well as candid, personal interviews with each member of the band. They said:
“We’ve worked with Charlie on and off since the band started really, so when the opportunity to make something together surrounding the homecoming show in Stockport came about, we jumped at the chance. We think he’s really captured the spirit of the band, and being a friend, he was able to get the natural moments you don’t normally see in a band documentary. We love the film and hope you do too!”
Watts added: “This is a project that has been very close to my heart for the last 18 months. Given my personal relationship with the band and the town itself, it was hugely important to me that the film delivered!
“I’ve been filming the lads since they started out, so it has been surreal to see their rise to such success – but not surprising! To be able to make a film about them playing to a sold-out show in our home tome of Stockport was something I’ll never forget. I think the film gives an intimate insight into the amazing bond and togetherness this band has. They grew up as best friends and it really does show on the screen.”
Blossoms put out their double album, ‘In Isolation/Live From The Plaza Theatre’, on October 23, hot on the heels of January’s number one LP ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’.
They’ll embark on a rescheduled UK tour in spring 2021. Original tickets are valid, and the remaining tickets are on sale now
