Blossoms have announced details of two new album launch shows for this February in support of the band’s third studio album Foolish Loving Spaces.
Manchester’s O2 Ritz on the 4th February and Liverpool’s O2 Academy on 15th February have been added to two sold out shows in Preston and London and Leeds.
The new album, Foolish Loving Spaces, will be released on January 31st and was produced by the band’s consistent and talented team of James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool.
Frontman Tom Ogden’s increasingly direct lyrical range turns album three into a romantic page-turner of light and shade, while its divergent moods are supplied by Myles Kellock’s piano and keyboard lines, careering from urgent stabs of TV game show-theme synth to more classic, rolling notes.
The record’s multi-instrumental colour and widescreen sound is provided by pedal steel / lead guitarist Josh Dewhurst, while Joe Donovan on drums and Charlie Salt on bass bring fluidly danceable grooves throughout, complemented on occasion by a wall of gospel harmony.
Blossoms have racked up widespread success and acclaim including an ICM Award Track of the Year nomination in 2018 for ‘There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)’ and Best Music Video nomination in 2019 for album single ‘Your’ Girlfriend’.
The band will also head out on a UK tour in March, so if you can’t make the album launch dates, it’s no sweat. Tickets are on sale now.
