DID YOU KNOW?

Bloc Party are an English indie rock band, composed of Kele Okereke on vocals and rhythm guitar, Russell Lissack on lead guitar, Gordon Moakes on bass guitar and Matt Tong on the drums. Their brand of indie art rock has been compared to bands such as Radiohead, The Cure, Blur, The Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies and Joy Division.

The band formed in 1999 after Okereke and Lissack decided to form a band at the Reading Festival. They went through a variety of names, before settling on Bloc Party in 2003. Moakes joined the band after answering an advert in the magazine NME, and Tong was picked out from an audition. Soon after, Bloc Party got their break by giving BBC Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq and Franz Ferdinand lead singer Alex Kapranos a copy of their demo, "She's Hearing Voices", which was then released as a single.

In February 2005, the band released their critically acclaimed debut album Silent Alarm in the United Kingdom, which NME later made their Album of the Year.[1] The album went on to be certified platinum in the UK a year later. The band built on this success with the release of their second studio album, A Weekend in the City, on February 5, 2007, in the UK and February 6 in the United States. The album reached a peak of #2 in the UK and #12 in the Billboard Hot 200.
