Following the release of their latest single and video for “Your Girlfriend” [listen HERE], chart-topping British band Blossoms have announced they will be making a welcomed return to North American shores in November. Starting in Washington, D.C on November 5, the Stockport five-piece will be joined by Dublin band Inhaler as support, and will be making stops in Brooklyn, NY, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“Your Girlfriend” was released last month alongside the rousing B-side “Torn Up.” Produced by James Skelly, Rich Turvey and the band at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, the The Talking Heads-inspired track was accompanied with an official video directed by James Slater and hilariously features all members in costume, with band member Myles Kellock playing the main love interest of front-man Tom Ogden.
Following a SOLD-OUT North American tour back in 2017 — including critically acclaimed appearances at Coachella Festival in California and Lollapalooza in Chicago – Blossoms have gone on to amass almost a quarter-of-a-billion combined global streams, with North America being their second biggest market in the world.
In other news, Blossoms launched their ‘Blossoms Pubcast’ this year. The podcast, which has topped the iTunes podcast charts, is based at The Blossoms in Stockport – the pub that gave the band their name. [Listen on Apple and Spotify)
