Blur Share Trailer For ‘To The End’ Documentary

Blur recently released a trailer for their upcoming new feature-length documentary, called Blur: To The End.

The documentary, which is directed by Toby L, follows the band’s first album in eight years. It tells the story of the bandmembers getting back together for their 2023 album The Ballad of Darren.

The documentary will come to U.K. and Irish cinemas beginning July 19.

According to a press release, the documentary will “follow the unique relationship of four friends – and bandmates of three decades – Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree as they came together in early 2023 to record new songs ahead of their sold-out, first-ever shows at London’s Wembley Stadium in July last summer.”

Speaking in the film, Alex James 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..”

“To The End is an intimate glimpse into relationships, motivation and mortality, the sights and sounds of long-term friendship unearthing a fresh new conquest to overcome together,” said Toby L.

“On the subject of capturing a band that has been so well documented, we sat down at the start of the project and agreed that the film had to tell a new story, be shot entirely on location, and crucially, be honest. In To The End, that’s what I hope people can see, and most importantly, feel,” he continued.

Josh Connolly produced the documentary via production house Up The Game.
