Bloc Party debut unheard material on live return, unveil new lineup

21 August 2015, 10:10 | Written by Laurence Day

Bloc Party have debuted new material and unveiled their new line up at a pair of recent shows.

The new-look Bloc Party played two sold-out shows in the U.S. - one at The Glass House in Pomona, and another at The Roxy in L.A.. They're set to headline The Lawn stage at FYF Fest this weekend.

Coming into the fray for erstwile sticksman Matt Tong - who's drumming with Algiers and in his own project Red Love - is Louise Bartle, while Justin Harris is now on bass after the departure of Gordon Moakes.

Frontman Kele Okereke has been speaking in a smattering of interviews down under about the band's forthcoming fifth record.

Bloc Party played a selection of new tracks at the recent sold-out shows, as well as classics from throughout their career.
