UK post punk band Bloc Party is set to release their sophomore album early next year.

The band's self-titled debut was released last February to critical acclaim being voted album of the year by UK music magazine NME. In August the album was released again, this time with each of the tracks remixed by artists like Mogwai, Ladytron and the now defunct Toronto indie band Death From Above 1979.

Their upcoming album A Weekend in the City is set for a February 6 release with the first single "The Prayer" hitting radio stations on January 29. If you've had a chance to see the band live you may have heard a new song or two like "Waiting For the 7:18" or "Hunting for Witches".

Here are the rest of the tracks:

"Song for Clay (Disappear Here)"
"Hunting for Witches"
"Waiting for the 7:18"
"The Prayer"
"Where Is Home?"
"I Still Remember"

The band will soon head out on the road with American indie band Panic! At the Disco and Jack's Mannequin they'll make these Canadian stops:
