The (almost) all-new Bloc Party made their live debut this week, playing two gigs way over in California - at The Glass House in Pomona on Wednesday, and at Los Angeles’ The Roxy last night.
The band - who now comprise of Kele Okereke and Russell Lissack alongside bassist Justin Harris and drummer Louise Bartle - also took the time to perform two brand new songs - listed as ‘New 1’ and ‘New 2’ officially, but with reported titles of ‘Eden’ and ‘Exes’ according to some tenacious YouTubers in Pomona.

Their set list read:
Hunting for Witches
Waiting for the 7.18
Song for Clay
One More Chance
So He Begins to Lie
This Modern Love
