The Up and Down week of Bloc Party

Bloc Party have had a pretty turbulent week - here we re-cap what as been going on, if you might've been on the site within the past week you might have seen a few different posts, here's what actually happened. 

17th March
Today I bring to you good news! Bloc Party have started recording their fifth album. In an interview with Australian radio Triple J this morning, Kele Okereke has said that they have 18 news songs, they've already started recording and he even went on to play a new track!

"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. I said if there was a guitar it was a sign ... I'm going to play a song from the new record; this is called 'Exes'."
