- Bloc Party finally play 'Skeleton' for the first time in yonks during the Providence leg of their 3rd US tour of the year!
- Stop-gap single, 'Flux', is premiered on radio and television...fans get worried that Bloc Party might be about to write an album of euro-techno. Then the Power Rangers / big rubbery alien video is revealed, and we realise they're probably just having a laugh.
[November & December]
Highlight: For Flux sake...the nation goes 'Flux' crazy. It makes Radio 1's top playlist, gets released as a free remix EP with NME and becomes the band's fourth top 10 single to date (and it's still hanging around in the charts now, a month later). Don't expect the success of 'Flux' to lead to a techno-tinged third album though...according to Matt, the one-off single was an experiment to "broaden their horizons".
So that's Bloc Party's 2007! All that remains is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year. BlocParty.net will be back in 2008...happy holidays!
