Bloc Party Announce Massive Tour

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
The Bloc Party party is coming to the US at last, after a collapsed lung for Matt Tong forced the band to cancel last fall's US dates. Our boy is back in the saddle, and the band will back on the road. And in the air. And all over the globe, really, look at the dates!

There's a lot of bands coming along at various stops along the way, including Albert Hammond Jr. (the Strokes), Sebastien Grangier (DFA 1979), Final Fantasy, the Like, & Smoosh.

The new Bloc Party album is due out on February 5th in Europe (via Witchita Recordings) and February 6th in the US (on Vice Records) . It's called a Weekend In The City. If you can't wait that long, Witchita is releasing the Prayer as a single in CD, vinyl and download formats, starting on January 29th.
