Bloc Party announce new EP ‘The High Life’

Their latest EP will land next month, and will include their recent collaboration with KennyHoopla.

Following their tour recent alongside Paramore, Bloc Party have announced details of a brand new EP.

The quartet - who recently completed their second run of shows supporting the Nashville trio, this time over in North America - have confirmed plans to release ‘The High Life’ next month, on 21st July via BMG / Infectious.

It’s set to include recent single ‘High Life’, and their collaboration with KennyHoopla, ‘Keep It Rolling’, which landed earlier this month.

“When we were invited on the Paramore tour, we really wanted to get together and capture where the band was at and share that music,” the band’s frontman Kele Okereke has said. “We got in the studio with our friend Charlie Andrew and this EP was the result – we’re very proud of these four tracks and they hopefully offer a little bridge between Alpha Games and what’s next for the band. To me, it’s the sound of coming out of the wilderness and re-embracing life.”

The band are also set to play a handful of festivals this summer.

Check out their two recent tracks, and their upcoming live appearances, below.

21 Tramlines - Sheffield
