Bloc Party: 'We might never make a record again'

Kele Okereke says he doesn't know what the band will do next

Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has admitted that he doesn't know what the future holds for the band.

Speaking backstage at Australia's Splendour In The Grass 2009, Okereke confirmed that the band have no concrete plans on when their next album will be released, reports Triple J.

The band's third and last LP, 'Intimacy', was released in 2008.

"We don't know what the future holds," he said. "It's weird, we're out of contract now so... we might take a year off, we might take three years off.... we might never make a record again or we might head straight back in and do a record. We'll see how we feel come the end of this touring cycle."

Bloc Party are set to release new single 'One More Chance' on August 10.

maybe they SHOULD take a break ... they seem to tour and record nonstop!

Somehow, I'm not too worried about them never making a record again. I just don't think that will happen.

I love how they take that part of the sentence, where he's really just saying anything, and make it a headline.

Yeah, me neither. As far as I know, they all get along. So really there's no reason to not make another album down the line. People that ambitious, driven and hard-working, and who get along well with each other are not going to just take three years off. I don't see it.

Kele's obviously grown and changed a lot since their start, but they seem cohesive and like they're all friends and having fun on stage every night, I would assume we haven't seen the last of them, but the past 2.5 years have been kind of nuts.

i don't know if it's this place's influence, probably is, but i was really digging intimacy there for a while, now i don't think it's all that great, aside from a couple of tracks. i went through a big bloc kick a while back, but haven't listened to them in a while. not a fan of the banal new single either.

having said that i would have given absolutely anything to go to splendour...

This year's line up was rather average I thought.

I do not know much about this band other than every song that appears on my Pandora radio, I love. I guess I should read though this thread and educate myself about them and their music.

Doooo it! Immediately!



My top 3 favorite bands (U2, Radiohead and Underworld) I've loved for years and years and years. But Bloc Party . . . I just discovered them in 2007 and in two short years they have rocketed to my #4 spot! I've seen them 8 times in the last 2 years and they are just absolutely PHENOMENAL live!

That is off the first album, Silent Alarm, which is the best place to start.

They only have three albums, so I'd just start at the beginning and go from there.
