Kele reveals Bloc Party will be back with a new album

2012 has got off to the best start (as far as I am concerned), Bloc Party ARE OFFICIALLY recording their 4th album. Kele Okereke spoke to Zane Lowe this morning on his Breakfast show today (3rd January 2012). Kele confirms that they have already recorded 2 brand new songs and have already demoed 17 songs! We've been tracking their return to the big stage as early as Christmas 2010 when they were pictured together in a festive photo, to random tweets by record producers to even Kele and Russell having fun with NME.

Kele has apologised for that fiasco, but the NME were fuming over this, so it's exciting to think that this year they will be releasing a new record. I hope they will have the album out in time for the festivals, but we shall see. After seeing them band in James Ihas studio last month it's no surprise the album is going to be more 'Rock' than previous LPs, I reckon we will hear some new material soon, and maybe some live dates!
