Bloc Party return to the live stage
Bloc Party have announced they are to return to the live stage after a three year absence.
The indie quartet, who are currently working in New York on their follow-up to 2008’s Intimacy, revealed yesterday that they are to perform at the Peace & Love Festival in Sweden on June 29 and the Melt Festival in Germany from July 13-15.
In an email sent out to fans, guitarist Russell Lissack said: "Hard to believe it's been nearly three years since our last show.
“We're really excited to announce our first festival appearances for this summer, at which we'll be debuting material from our forthcoming new album."
The news comes less than six months after the band appeared to admit they were thinking of finding a replacement for front-man Kele Okereke in comments which they later back-tracked on.
