Bloc Party have announced plans to take “a break from recording” their fifth album in order to play LA’s FYF Fest.
The festival runs from 22nd-23rd August, and this will be the band’s first show in over two years, their last being Latitude Festival 2013.
Earlier this year, Kele Okereke confirmed the band were recording their fifth album, saying it sounds “like nothing that we’ve ever done before.” Drummer Matt Tong has already left the band, and bassist Gordon Moakes has said he’s not involved in the new album.
FYF Fest will also host Frank Ocean, Morrissey and Flume in 2015. Purity Ring, Run the Jewels, Mac DeMarco are also set to appear.
Tickets for the two-day festival are available here.
