Britpop band Blur confirmed the news with the release of a video posted to their social media accounts on Wednesday. 

The live album and concert film come after their 2023 tour, which was in support of the band’s ninth studio album The Ballad Of Darren. 

News of another documentary release by Blur follows their announcement of a feature-length film that documents their recent reunion.

The band shared a trailer for Blur: To The End on their social media channels on Tuesday, revealing that the movie will be shown in UK and Irish cinemas from July 19. 

Directed by Toby L, the film goes behind the scenes as the iconic English rock band came back together after almost 10 years.

The band, made up of Graham Coxon, Alex James, Damon Albarn and Dave Rowntree, went on hiatus in 2015 and then announced their reunion news last year before performing a string of gigs at Wembley for the first time ever.

In the trailer, the camera cuts between shots of the band performing at a packed-out gig reunion gig and more serene scenes of them wading in the sea and talking about their lives post-fame.

Speaking in the film, bassist Alex James, 55, said: ‘We’ve barely communicated for the last 10 years… I mean even when we really split up, it didn’t take this long to make a record.

‘But what’s wonderful is as soon as the four of us get in a room together, it’s just exactly the same as it was when we were all 19.’

Graham Coxon, 55, lead guitarist and secondary vocalist for the band, chimed in with: ‘In the ’90s, it was a very intense time. On the same sort of level as a relationship, or marriages and things like that.

Frontman Damon Albarn, 56, added: ‘I think it’s okay to say that time apart was taken up with other friendships and just sort of recuperating or doing other things.’

‘I don’t think any of us thought we’d make another record, especially not a record like this. I suppose that’s why I wanted to try and make it as good as possible.

‘We all have hugely involving and complicated lives and we’re so lucky that we get to spend this time together, just the four of us. And that’s the beauty of it.’
