Blur to Release Documentary in January, No Further Plans to Work Together

Blur have been formally put on hold for a handful of years. And unlike certain other mid-decade phenomenons, they really haven't teased us with breakup after breakup after breakup. (I'm looking at you, Liam.) No indeed, after their demise, Blur members went on to promote new, cartoonish projects and generally kept their distance from each other. But as many of you may know, the boys of Blur decided they missed the old times and got a reunion tour going in the last year, playing shows all over England, while dutifully ignoring the United States. Whatever. I didn't want to see them anyway. (Yes I did.)

But although Blur has no plans to permanently reunite or record together again, they did put together a documentary that chronicles the band's beginnings and places special focus on the reunion tour. Titled No Distance Left to Run, the film is "a musing on Englishness and identity, and a portrait of friendship and resolution," according to Blur's label, Parlophone. From the looks of the trailer, I can mostly gather that many hugs, warm feelings, and ponies are afoot, as well as a stage dive here and a backstage peek there.

Arts Alliance Media plans to distribute No Distance next month in U.K. theaters, and we can expect the doc to make its worldwide rounds sometime after that.
