Bloc Party name their new album
Band will release their fourth studio album 'Four' on August 20
Bloc Party have announced that their new album will be titled 'Four' and will be released later this summer.
The album, which is the follow up to their 2008 LP 'Intimacy', will be released on August 20 and has been produced by Death Cab For Cutie/The Mars Volta knob twiddler Alex Newport.
The quartet have released a video trailer for 'Four', which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
The band will preview their new album with three low-key shows next month. The trek kicks off with a date at Glasgow Garage on June 19, followed by a show at Manchester's HMV Ritz on June 20 and wrapping up at London KOKO on June 21. They will also play a run of European and US shows throughout the summer.
Last year Kele courted controversy by claiming that while he was busy with his solo career, the remaining members of Bloc Party would be auditioning new singers to allow them to continue playing together. Bloc Party soon backtracked on the admission, which had been made to NME.
