On May 3, the week after the album’s release, the band will head home to Stockport’s Plaza Theatre for the premiere of a new film, also called Ribbon Around The Bomb and directed by Arctic Monkeys‘ Creative Director, Edwin Burdis, who worked on the band’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ and ‘AM’ albums, as well as the videos for Blossoms’ new album campaign.
Following the film premiere, Blossoms will play the new album in full. Tickets for the show and premiere are on sale from 10am BST on Thursday (April 7) here.

Speaking of the new film, Blossoms frontman Tom Ogden said: “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.”
