An instant classic on release and still sounding as vital and emotionally resonant as it did back in 2005, Bloc Party ’s mammoth debut record Silent Alarm will be revisited in full at a hotly anticipated show here in Auckland later this year. Bloc Party will be joined Indie rockers The Beths as their special guests on this tour.
Back in 2004, Bloc Party were four Londoners emerging into a post-Strokes world buzzing with a newly discovered love of angular guitars. Lead by the compelling, impassioned yelp of Kele Okereke and his stunning descriptions of love, helplessness and life in the early aughts, they drove centimetre perfect incisions into the bedrock of indie song-craft.
More than your ordinary garage band, Bloc Party have left a legacy of scope, vision and incendiary pop songs for their fans to pour over in the 13 years since Silent Alarm was released.
Bloc Party are Kele Okereke (vocals, guitar), Russell Lissack (guitar), Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums).
