Bloc Party will return to the States this Fall for more dates in support of their sophomore LP A Weekend in the City.
â€œThis is a rock band for whom the swell of excitement, the surge of the crowd and the clang and clank of distorted drums and guitars remains a pure fuel. We’re just trying to find new ways to express it,â€ bassist Gordon Moakes writes in his blog.
Fan Club presales for the shows began earlier this week while public sales begin on July 14th.
