Bloc Party announce ‘Silent Alarm’ live album and one off, intimate Leeds show

Are you hoping for a miracle?

Bloc Party have confirmed plans to release a live version of their seminal debut album ‘Silent Alarm’ next year.

The record will be released on 22 February 2019, and documents the band’s performances as they prepare to head out on a forthcoming six date European tour where they will perform the album live and in full for the first time.

Although the tour officially kicks off in Amsterdam on October 15, they’ll play an intimate show at Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on Saturday October 13. Register for tickets here.

NME’s review in 2005 stated: “‘Silent Alarm’ is the unpigeonholeable soundtrack to 21st-century life as a cast-off. In a world of posers, fakers and bandwagon-jumpers, Bloc Party are unquestionably ‘4 real’.

“They never shy away from showing their truest feelings, even if those are of vulnerability or weakness. It’s this honesty which has spoken to people and will speak to a hell of a lot more when ‘Silent Alarm’ rings out beyond the desks of music journalists.”

At the beginning of September, Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke announced details of his debut musical ‘Leave To Remain’.

Opening in January in Hammersmith, the show comes with songs penned by Okereke and  Matt Jones – telling the story of “a young gay couple suddenly faced with an uncertain future, told through a mixture of music, drama and movement”.
