Kele Okereke hints at new Bloc Party material for the coming months

Brand new Bloc Party songs are on the horizon

Bloc Party‘s Kele Okereke has hinted that the band will release fresh material this summer.

Speaking exclusively to NME at Latitude, the singer said that band were poised to release “new stuff.”

Okereke said: “There are some plans for new stuff. I’m not sure what I can say… I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some new stuff before the end of the summer.”

The band’s guitarist Russell Lissack confirmed earlier this year that Bloc Party would get back together in September.

He said: “Kele and I started working on Bloc Party stuff together and separately. We’re having a bit of a break until the festivals are over, because people have commitments during the summer, but we’re going to get back properly in September and sit in a rehearsal studio to work on new band material.”

But now it looks the band could be releasing new material sooner than we thought. Bloc Party last played live in 2009 and have been on hiatus since. Okereke has been working on a book of short stories since 2009.
