New video for 'Truth'. It's cute. I like it. Waaaaaaaaaaaay better than the last video they released (for 'Kettling').

http://youtu.be/p1CSMdDIRGg



Bloc Party will release their new single 'Truth' on the 25th of February, just before the band take the stage at their now sold out biggest headline UK show of their career - the 19,000 capacity Earl's Court.

The single will be a digital-only release featuring remixes by Jerome LOL, A Chat and IO Echo.

My God, I either have a horribly dirty mind, or it just seriously looks like every person in that video is masturbating furiously.

No, you're not alone. A lot of the comments I was reading yesterday said the same thing. One guy posted that the face at 3:36 is the best O-face ever! Hahaha

I can't check to see at the moment but if it's Kele I agree. He had a pretty fabulous o-face the entire video

A bit late but I really enjoyed the show. Nicely balanced setlist. Good performance all around. Enthusiastic crowd, during the older songs at least. I was hoping for Like Eating Glass instead of Positive Tension and I got it. Was also happy with Waiting for the 7.18. Flux was another highlight. The best moment however was Song for Clay + Banquet. I've seen them twice now and that's been the obvious highlight both times. Most of the new songs are great live. That riff in Coliseum is beastly.

One negative point are their setlist choices in the encore. They opened both encores with really slow songs. They played a new version of Signs (without glockenspiel and Kele didn't attempt the falsetto either) which wasn't very good to open the first encore. They opened the second encore with a new song. It was nice but extremely slow which killed the mood.

Fun. They definitely have a lot of energy on stage and they can rock hard. The bassist even headbutted a cymbal at one point. The sound wasn't very good and the crowd was largely disinterested. Both those things are to be expected of course, but still disappointing.

Seems these four just can't seem to get along on the road.

A drum tech has been filling in for Matt during the past few gigs... Let's hope he's just ill or something.
