Bloc Party background
The Bloc Party band members are Kele Okereke (singer/guitarist), Russell Lissack (guitarist), Louise Bartle (drummer) and Justin Harris (bass guitarist). Initially performing under the name Angel Range, Okereke and Lissack met at Reading Festival and decided to create a band together as they had similar musical tastes, inspired by the likes of Sonic Youth, Joy Division and the Cure.
Now playing as Bloc Party, the band received praise from the likes of Franz Ferdinand prior to the release of their debut album. Silent Alarm, released in 2005, was released to widespread acclaim and charted highly worldwide including peaking at number 3 on the UK album chart. Bloc Party songs like "Banquet" and "This Modern Love" proved hugely popular and to this day still receive millions of hits on streaming sites like YouTube and Spotify.
Their darker, more complex 2007 second album A Weekend in the City helped the band break into the US market, with follow-up efforts Intimacy and Four released in 2008 and 2012 respectively. By this point, Bloc Party were considered among the rock scene's most important players, and the band's intelligent songwriting helped to separate them from the rest of the crowd in a fiercely competitive market. The new Bloc Party album HYMNS was released in 2016 and features a more soulful, groove-driven approach to rock, standing out from the band's previous releases.
