No band is making quite the push to define the summer like Blossoms are. Following a supporting slot at Kasabian’s homecoming gigs at the King Power Stadium, the Stockport five-piece are set to follow it up with an even bigger shot of exposure at The Stone Roses‘ shows at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester later this month, before heading off on a string of festival dates including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and more.
In between all that, they’re also set to put out their self-titled debut on August 5. Produced by The Coral‘s James Skelly, ‘Blossoms’ will feature arguably their best song to date, the bouncy ‘Charlemagne’ as well a few new cuts we’re yet to hear.
But before they undertake their massive summer, the group cut their teeth with a headline slot on the Vevo Stage at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton last month. The band have also been so kind to premiere two videos from that set with NME, which includes a live version of the aforementioned ‘Charlemagne’ and the Tame Impala-esque stomper ‘At Most A Kiss’.
