Stockport band Blossoms have announced an extensive tour to coincide with the release of their new single.

The psych-pop five piece will start in Hebden Bridge in January and tour throughout February and March before a gig at Gorilla in Manchester.

The band, who have recently played high profile support slots with James and The Courteeners, will release new single Cut Me And I’ll Bleed on March 2 through Skeleton Key Records, following their debut single, Blow, released earlier this year.

The single was produced by The Coral frontman James Skelly at Parr St Studios in Liverpool, and will be available on a limited edition 7″ vinyl as well as download, backed by a live version of the band’s track The Urge.

The band, comprised of lead singer Tom Ogden, bassist Charlie Salt, guitarist Josh Dewhurst, drummer Joe Donovan and keyboardist Myles Kellock, were invited to Skelly’s studio after he heard one of their early tracks.

The band said: “James Skelly from The Coral saw it [You Pulled A Gun On Me], loved it and was like, ‘You’s are f***ing boss. Come & jam with me’.

“When the man who who’s written some of the greatest guitar tunes in the last 10 years, invites you down the M62 to go to his house for tea, first you pinch yourself and then you ask, ‘do you want us to bring some dessert?’ and get down there.”
