Bloc Party Announce New Album ‘Four’ + Teaser Video

Written by Brayden Darke on June 1, 2012

British indie outfit Bloc Party will be releasing their fourth studio album, titled Four, this August via their new label Frenchkiss Records, which they joined earlier this year after a run of three albums on previous label Wichita. A teaser for the album has also been released, which you can watch below.

The new album is the follow-up to their 2008 release Intimacy, and seperate 2009 single One More Chance, which then saw the band go on a hiatus with an unknown time scale for a new release. Kele worked on his solo albums The Boxer and The Hunter, and guitarist Russell Lissack briefly joined the live lineup of Irish rock band Ash.

The band had joked in an interview with the NME last year: when Okereke had suggested he feared that he was on the verge of being kicked out of the band, and Lissack joined in by stating that they would record new music as an instrumental group and perhaps get a new singer, before they revealed that it was all a joke by posting a comment on their website stating: “Bloc Party is still Bloc Party”.

Frontman Kele Okereke took to his blog to talk about the new album, mostly speaking about the unity between the group, and that it was good for them to get away from it all, but now they’re back together and he’s mostly happy with the new record, calling it “the sound that only the four of us could make”, and saying, “I am prouder of it than any record we have ever made”.

Bloc Party will be appearing on the Splendour in the Grass 2012 lineup this July.
