Bloc Party‘s 2005 debut album Silent Alarm will be remembered on a European tour later this year.

Kele Okereke’s latest line-up, which saw Justin Harris and drummer Louise Bartle replace Gordon Moakes and Matt Tong for the campaign behind their most recent studio album Hymns, will play gigs in Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin and London in October, performing Silent Alarm in full.

We were at the Bloc Party show in Leeds during their Hymns run, and found then that ‘the real showstoppers are Silent Alarm’s powerhouses‘.

“This Modern Love is not an obvious choice, but like an old friend you’ve not seen in a long time, everything settles back into place and you leave wondering why you’d left it so long to catch up. And there’s Helicopter, which even after all these years is completely unstoppable. This is why people watch Bloc Party, for their ability to marry absolute ferocity with real moments of beauty.”
