Bloc Party Return for a 'Weekend in the City'

Published: 2006-12-22
Bloc Party has returned after a failed tour and a band ailment.

The band was scheduled to be the opening act for Panic! At the Disco's tour this year, unfortunately drummer Matt Tong's lung collapsed. The band pulled themselves from the tour giving Tong time to recuperate.

However, hype is still high for their sophomore album, Weekend in the City. The new album will focus on 'youth being co-opted by corporations, the loss of identity in the modern world, the loneliness of life in a megapolis.'

The band has been working in Dublin with producer Jacknife Lee (Snow Patrol). And once the new album is released, a tour is promised.
