Bloc Party have announced that they will play their seminal debut album Silent Alarm live and in full at six huge shows across the UK this summer, including three outdoor shows in Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, alongside a date in Brighton. It will be the first time they have performed in the UK since a one-off show at London’s Alexandra Palace, which sold out in minutes, in October 2017.

That show, alongside a handful of others on their acclaimed European tour, was recorded for a special live edition of Silent Alarm, which was released on 12th April on 12-inch, CD, digital download and special edition bundles.

Silent Alarm was released in 2005 to widespread critical and commercial success, achieving multi-platinum sales and earning Bloc Party a Mercury Prize nomination. The album has since been heralded as one of the most influential and important of the decade by outlets as diverse as Pitchfork, Q, Newsweek, Spin, Complex and Clash, and was named in numerous lists collating the best albums of the decade, whilst NME named it as one of the best of all time.
