Yesterday Bloc Party announced that you’d have to wait just three days to hear their forthcoming third album. If that is too long for you, and you are on the internet so it’s fair to assume it is, you can hear a new single right now. As for sounds: The band promised that the new album would recall “fan favourites” like “Helicopter,” “Banquet,” and “So Here We Are,” although on first pass “Trojan Horse”‘s stomp and buzz-saw guitar hit a bit more like “The Prayer” than it does the Silent stuff. Have a listen at MySpace.
