Gordon Moakes departs Bloc Party?

20 March 2015, 18:10 | Written by Laurence Day

Gordon Moakes (pictured far left), Bloc Party's bassist, has confirmed he is no longer "involved in the latest incarnation of Bloc Party".

Ex-drummer Matt Tong left last year, leaving only guitarist Russell Lissack and singer/guitarist Kele Okereke in the group.

Okereke recently confirmed that the band are currently working on album five. He also previewed a new track.

It is currently unclear whether Moakes will return at all in the future, or whether this hiatus is permanent.

Posting on Twitter as no-longer-a-side-project Young Legionnaire, Moakes confirmed his departure, at least for now.
