Bloc Party announce UK dates
After a two-year absence, Bloc Party have announced their live return to the UK with a trio of intimate dates in June.
The London four-piece will play the Garage in Glasgow (June 19th), The Ritz in Manchester (June 20th) and London's KOKO (June 21st), before embarking on a busy summer festival schedule. Tickets are on sale now, available through Bloc Party's website.
Front man Kele commented about the shows this morning: "I know it’s been a long two and half years since Bloc Party last performed in the UK. Well it seems that wait is over, we are happy to announce a short run of intimate shows for our friends in the UK and our friends in the US. We will be playing choice cuts from our new record as well as some more familiar jams. We hope to see you soon."
The band recently announced their signing to Frenchkiss Records and are currently at work in the studio on their new album.
