New Bloc Party LP Intimacy Is Out In Three Days

It’s been awhile since Bloc Party reminded everyone how good Gang Of Four were, with their highly impressive debut Silent Alarm. Since then the band has served to remind everyone how good Silent Alarm was, with A Weekend In The City and etc. But all that might change in just three days. According to the press release:

Bloc Party’s third album, ‘Intimacy’ will be available August 21. It can be pre-ordered now via the band’s website:

The album will also be available as a CD which will be delivered from October 27 and feature additional songs. Anyone pre-ordering the CD will also receive the digital album from August 21…

The album produced by Paul Epworth (Silent Alarm) and Jacknife Lee (A Weekend in the City) was recorded in Kent and London. Some songs are Bloc Party at their most wildly experimental, while other tracks are simply classic Bloc Party, fitting in seamlessly amongst fan-favourites ‘Helicopter’, ‘Banquet’ and ‘So Here We Are’.

They know which songs the fans like. This is encouraging. The first single … not as much. Fingers crossed! There’s a tour coming — dates are here.
