New & Future Releases
Schedule for Blur and
Dave: Blur in 2015
Introduction to Blur
are an English rock/pop band formed in 1988 under
the name of Seymour. They were one of the most
significant bands of the 1990s in Britain and the important part of the so-called Britpop
movement. Many remember Blur from the infamous Britpop
battle against Oasis.
The band have
released eight studio albums plus two compilations, which have
sold around 15 million copies worldwide. Their breakthrough
album Parklife was released in 1994 and featured the
hits "Girls & Boys" and "Parklife". The band's other popular
songs include "Song 2", "Beetlebum",
"Country House" and "Coffee & TV".
However, Blur are far more than
Britpop and the hits you may have heard. If you include their
solo projects, it's hard to come by with a musical style they
haven't covered. Their music is usually an
inventive mixture of different styles. Every album the band have
released is unique and musically different.
Guitarist Graham Coxon
left Blur in 2002, but reunited with the band five years
later. The reunion resulted in live tours, where they mainly played their most loved songs.
Blur's latest studio album
The Magic Whip - the first in 12 years - was released in
2015. The band supported it with live shows around the world,
including London's BST Hyde Park festival and
New York's Madison Square Garden.
As of 2022, the promotion for
The Magic Whip is over and unfortunately the band have no
firm plans for the future. However, Damon recently expressed his
interest to record a new Blur album: "Yes, I have some songs
that I carry with me, not physically, metaphorically and I hope that next
year  we can do something. It would be very nice to make another
album, it would also be good to do some concerts. I've been very
busy," he told Rolling Stone
México in last September.
