Well, that sounded promising. Here's hoping for a vast improvement over the debut.

I'm pretty pumped. His first solo album was rubbish but he released this track last year that no one remembers (it's not even on wikipedia) but it's amaaaaazing. If the album is anything like this track it'll be top five of the year for me for sure

They just posted a teaser video on Facebook. So they're recording!

It seemed so. Especially when Matt Tong didn't do the last part of their last tour. I'm still unsure wether he's still in the band.

I did some Twitter searching and apparently Moakes and Tong have left the band.

I remember most of us (myself included) liking the last album, but I don't remember anything about at this point!

I think we all liked it but it's one of those albums that just doesn't stick. Happens to me with tons of albums every year.

We'll always have Silent Alarm

A Weekend in the City is still my favorite of theirs. I know I'm in the minority, and I like Silent Alarm a lot....but AWITC just feels more cohesive to me......

I wouldn't argue with that actually... Silent Alarm is quite long and it's a bit all over the shop. Just can't beat the songs though. For me.

I like both quite a lot, but Weekend took me years to come around to for some reason. Took me a long time to get over judging it for what I'd wanted it to be, not what it was.

I saw them on their initial US tour!

Yeah, Matt left the band in '13 and Gordy left this year or late last year. So it's just Kele and Russell. When all the news dropped a couple months ago, I couldn't find any info on who-or-if anyone was replacing Matt and Gordy.

I've heard every Bloc Party album and I think my Rushmore would be all Silent Alarm songs...

I'd say probably my top six or seven Bloc Party tracks would be from Silent Alarm.
