When Blur announced last year that they will be reuniting the band for a tour, it made veryone excited, including me who had never seen them live. But then it seemed to end abruptly without the band even coming to the US for shows. Now the band is releasing a documentary regarding the reunion titled No Distance Left To Run, named after their extremely depressing track from their 1999 album “13”. The documentary features footage of the band’s reunion concerts and shows the members talking about the band’s 20th anniversary. This is the statement Blur’s label Parlophone put out about the film:
With previously unseen archive material alongside new interviews and reportage, the film recounts the highs and lows of a very British band from the late 80’s to their headline return at Glastonbury and Hyde Park. The result is a musing on Englishness and identity and a portrait of friendship and resolution.
The film will be released on January 19, you can watch the trailer for the film below.
