After four years of radio silence from Bloc Party and frontman Kele embarking on a solo career, the group is finally dropping their fourth album, aptly titled Four, on 8/21. According to a statement from Kele’s blog, this will be the best one yet.
we have just finished mixing our new record. i am very proud of it. it is the best thing that we have ever done and finishing this record has taken us on quite a journey.
there have been babies, breakdowns, tantrums and hospitalisations but its finally here. we started making this record in NY in the winter of 2011. we didn’t want to let the world know so we told a lie that got out of hand but it made us laugh in the process, which brought us closer together.
Awww. Peep the trailer for Four, and be sure to check out their world tour dates, kicking off June 19 in Glasgow.
