First New Album In 6 Years!

"Alpha Games was conceived on the road, playing in front of amazing crowds on our last tour and then brought to life with the fire and the frustrations of 2020," says Kele Okereke on Bloc Party's first new album in six years.

This is the first Bloc Party album written and recorded as this four piece - adding the musicality of Justin Harris (bass) and the unbridled energy and power of Louise Bartle on the drums - to capture the spark of their live shows and to deliver the most exciting Bloc Party album yet.

"We wanted to can what was happening at those massive gigs in 2019, to showcase what Louise can do, what Russell is capable of and, most importantly, the electricity coming off the audience. We knew that Nick & Adam were the right choice of producers to do that, and the result feels like fire in a bottle."

Produced by Nick Launay & Adam Greenspan (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, IDLES), the 12 tracks of Alpha Games veer from the intense & confrontational ("Traps," "Day Drinker") to melodic and introspective ("If We Get Caught," "By Any Means Necessary") and marks a new and important chapter in one of music's most important voices (in Kele Okereke) and important bands (in Bloc Party).
