Bloc Party Falls Festival Sideshows Announced

For those Bloc Party fans who can’t make it to Falls Festival or Southbound or just want to see the band more than once, you’re in luck because the Brits have announced a handful of headline shows.

Bloc Party will play two sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney in early January at The Forum and Enmore Theatre respectively.

It’s the first time we’ve had the band in the country since early 2013 and in between then and now Kele and co have been working on a highly anticipated fifth record – the follow-up to Four.

The band teased new music in May and have since been trying out a few new songs live. It is hoped that they will bring a smattering of new tunes to the stages of Australia while also running through their ridiculously tight discography.

In March it was announced that bassist Gordon Moakes was leaving the band following the departure of drummer Matt Tong in 2013. This is a new look Bloc Party but by all accounts they are still thrashing it live.
