March 20, 2015

Following the ten year anniversary of their debut release’Silent Alarm’, news has surfaced that British band Bloc Party are reuniting. Frontman Kele Okereke confirmed the news on Australian radio – currently in the country promoting his solo album, ‘Trick‘. Okereke told Australia’s Triple J radio, “I guess it’s the first time that I have talked about it but we are making a record at the moment. It’s sounding like nothing that we’ve done before but that’s what everyone always says. We’re at the writing/recording phase. We’ve started recording — I think we have about 18 [song] ideas and we’re going to lay them down properly in the next few months.” Read more on the story here and watch some throwback Bloc Party below.
