Never miss another 'Bloc Party' show
Bloc Party + Theme Park
With their new album 'Four', released on August 20th, Bloc Party head out on a UK headline tour in October.
'Four' is the London four piece's first full-length since 2008's acclaimed 'Intimacy'. The Autumn tour gives fans the chance to enjoy material from the new album, alongside more familiar tracks from the band's 10 year history.
Support on all dates will come from Theme Park.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Birmingham, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Reared on a diet of pop culture and good music, Bloc Party met through the small ads of the music press to create a band who went on to make the headlines. After a short hiatus in 2013, Kele Okereke returned refreshed in 2015 with a new line-up: original guitarist Russell Lissack joined by new recruits Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums)
Ask them their influences, and they say they've been influenced by it all. Live, Bloc Party '...rip through new classics...like they've written them 20 minutes before the gig - the ferocity and adrenaline of youth shines through the angular rhythms and layers of effects.' (bbc.co.uk). They also play regular DJ slots up and down the country.
Bloc Party tour dates
A series of single releases and extensive touring throughout 2012 gained the London trio a wealth of fans and supporters. The band released their eponymous debut album via Transgressive Records in February 2012. Think Talking Heads and Bombay Bicycle Club with a healthy helping of sun-kissed calypso!
