Bloc Party To Perform ‘Silent Alarm’ Album in Full in Australia

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 performed live and in full for the very first time in Australia with hotly anticipated shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in late 2018. Click through for all the official details.

As tickets to the European leg of the tour were snapped up with frenzied excitement, Australia will be given a rare opportunity to experience an album recently described by Complex Magazine as “a long-overdue reminder of how urgent and exciting rock could be” and by the NME as “one of the best albums of all time.”

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.

The record was an immediate hit as it burned up the English and American album charts, inspiring breathless reviews wherever it was heard.

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.
The chance for Australian audiences to revisit these classics with the band as they perform the album in full will be too good to pass up.
