New Bloc Party Album Coming Soon

Bloc Party have announced the details for their brand spanking new album ‘HYMNS’ today!

 

The new release is due to drop January 29th next year via Create/Control + Infectious Music/BMG in standard CD and digital formats, as well as deluxe CD, deluxe digital and limted edition double vinyl formats featuring four extra songs. They’ve covered all the bases really. Plus if you pre-order the album the opening song, The Love Within is yours to tide you over.

‘HYMNS’ is a rebirth for Bloc Party, after16 years as a band, four studio albums and a swag of world tours and awards, Kele Okereke and Russell Lissack are taking it back to where it all began. Lissack commented saying “Bloc Party started with just Kele and I, and we used to write the songs together, and we found other people and grew from that. It feels like that’s happened again,” says Russell. They started writing together, just the two of them, in 2014, and were joined at various stages by the two new members who have made Bloc Party a four-piece again: bassist Justin Harris, whom the band met in his previous guise as part of the Portland indie rock band Menomena, and drummer Louise Bartle, a 21-year-old that the pair discovered on YouTube, and who “blew us away. It’s good to have someone bringing that energy of doing it for the first time. It’s made us all excited about going forward.”

The result is a record that sounds like a band growing and changing, pushing new sounds via new approaches. You can catch the band at their upcoming Australian performances later this year and in the new year.
