Bloc Party toured their debut album ‘Silent Alarm’ in full last year, including a London show at Alexandra Palace, and they’ve been drip-feeding new shows for 2019 where they’ll play the album in full.

The set is due to come to a handful of UK headline shows as well as a select number of festivals.

The band have now revealed that the tour will cross the Atlantic and land in North America for six shows split between September and November.

The run will begin on 16th September in Washington DC, before they play Philadelphia, Boston and New York.

They’ll then return in November for gigs in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
