The Stockport five-piece have told Radio X's Gordon Smart about the time drummer Joe Donovan's monitor cut out.

Blossoms have recalled the last gig that sent a "shiver down their spine".

Asked by Radio X's Gordon Smart about the worst show they'd ever played, drummer Joe Donovan revealed: "I go Pj Mollys. My monitor cut out and I started like half a bar (early) It was awful."

Talking about the intimate Scottish show, he added: "But then the next night I messed it up again. My monitor was fine. I had it stuck in my head then. 

"Every time we played that tune I hated it."

Meanwhile, the Stockport five-piece have announced the details of their second album, Cool Like You, while releasing its first single.

The album - which is set for release on 27 April 2018 - is the follow up to their UK No.1 self-titled debut, which includes hits such as Charlemagne and Blown Rose. 

Speaking to Radio X's Gordon Smart about the difference between their first and second LP, frontman Tom Ogden said: "We think it's more of an accomplished body of songs and it sounds more like a whole album, whereas the first one was like singles built up over three and a half years.

Watch them talk about the records here:

On Cool Like You's "soundtracky" new sound, he added: "It's a lot more upbeat this album. We consciously did that with the songs, because we wanted to take the live set up a level."
