British band Bloc Party have been touring like mad recently and are also just about ready to drop their new album, Four.
The gang has already previewed ‘Octopus’ and ‘Day Four’ but now – ahead of the official release – they’re streaming the entire thing.
Four is a long time in the making; Bloc Party (Kele Okereke, Russell Lissack, Gordon Moakes and Matt Tong) entered the studio way back in 2010 and the result is one of the best albums of the year.
Okereke explained the band’s pseudo-hiatus like so: “I think if we’d made another record after Intimacy it would have been quite a poisonous head space for us all. Having time out was the best thing we could have done.”
