On the eve of the third album release, Bloc Party this evening performed 'Mercury' and 'Flux' on Steve Lamacq's 6 Music show. Kele and Matt were also interviewed about 'Intimacy', which, according to this article, is Kele's break-up album (relationship-wise, not with the band). The production of the album was spread 50-50 between Paul Epworth (songs already pre-written) and Jacknife Lee (tracks which were written in the studio during the recording process).
Those on the ball will be able to download the new album in all its digital glory at 9am tomorrow morning, so get writing your sick notes now. It feels like Christmas Eve, aged 12, all over again!
