Blossoms’ fourth studio album, ‘Ribbon Around The Bomb’, came out this April. The group’s new ‘Live At Sefton Park’ collection arrived last week as part of a ‘super deluxe’ edition of their latest record.

“On Sunday 2nd May 2021 it’d been 413 days since anyone had played a gig in the UK,” Blossoms wrote to announce the 17-track live album. “That night we played a headline show at Sefton Park, Liverpool.”

In a review of the landmark show itselfNME‘s Rhys Buchanan wrote: “There’s a sense of unity and messy unrestricted joy as we hear the likes of ‘There’s A Reason Why’ and ‘I Can’t Stand It’.

“The promise of punters being able to act like the pandemic never happened is clearly being fulfilled: mates are on shoulders, people bursting through the crowd towards the front. It really is business as usual.”
