Speaking to NME.com yesterday at the Reading Festival, Gordy has confirmed that Bloc Party are already working on new material for the third album! They spent the past week rehearsing a dozen new tracks in London and will head into the studio tomorrow to do some preliminary recording with Jacknife Lee, producer of 'A Weekend In The City'. There's talk of a brand new single this year, but this will depend on how much progress they make next week. Either way, the band are definitely eager to keep their creative output ticking over.

I agree with the guy above me, the bad quality versions of waiting for the 7:18 and uniform sort of put me off a little :p Although I hope they play some new songs over the winter stadium tour, not sure if they would take that big a risk though on such a big stage.
yeah well if you read up on how AWITC was made, it took them just about a year from the start of the process to release it, so perhaps we can expect bloc party to headline reading and leeds next year, supporting the release of a new album? that would be awesome!
