It will premiere on May 3rd...

Blossoms have confirmed plans for new film Ribbon Around The Bomb.

The new film was directed by Edwin Burdis, who worked on the visuals for Arctic Monkeys' 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino' and 'AM' albums.

Working closely with Blossoms, the director has sculpted the music videos for the band's new album, 'Ribbon Around The Bomb'.

Out on April 29th, the LP is accompanied by a full film, which will premiere at Stockport's Plaza on May 3rd before Blossoms play their new album in full.

Tickets for the event are on sale now.

Speaking about the film, Blossoms’ Tom Ogden says:

"What a joy it was making this film with Edwin Burdis. It was also great to work with my cousin Daniel Rigby, a BAFTA award winning actor, who brilliantly plays ‘The Writer’ who is trying to put on his new play ‘Ribbon Around The Bomb’. Edwin’s unique style and vision really took the film to surreal corners, using editing techniques I’ve never come across before! The outcome is a quirky, dream-like film that we absolutely love..."

Director Edwin Burdis adds: "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..."
