Bloc Party have hinted that their new album 'Four' could be their last.

Speaking to Australia's Triple J magazine, frontman Kele Okereke said that when the band took a break in 2009, he believed it was the end of the group.

"When we took a break in 2009 I was in the mindset that we were done," he said. "Our relationships were in such a difficult place that this was it, this was the end." He added: "I don't know where we'll go from here. I don't know what will happen. But I know if this is the last thing we ever do, then we've done everything I wanted to do."

Last week (July 29), Bloc Party unveiled a new track titled 'Day Four', which is the second track to be taken from their new album 'Four'. You can listen to the track below. Earlier this month (July 10), the band premiered the track 'Octopus', which you can also hear below.

The band will tour the UK in October, playing a total of eight shows. The dates kick off at Newcastle's O2 Academy on October 12 and run until October 20, when the band headline Cambridge Corn Exchange. The run also includes gigs in Leeds, Glasgow, Southampton, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester.
