Bloc Party show their concern as the city they're in slips slowly into the sea...

Bloc Party blow fans away

New tunes for Teenage Cancer Trust
30 Mar 06 - Bloc Party brought the house down last night at the Royal Albert Hall with five brand new tracks.

The follow up to their eagerly awaited debut album Silent Alarm looks to be getting in shape as the band hit the stage, and 6 Music can exclusively reveal it should be ready by the end of the summer.

Songs they unleashed at the charity bash included Waiting for the 7.18, Uniform, Blue Moon, Hunting For Witches and Wet.

Kele from the band told us they have still got a bit of work to do on the record though:

"We're going to do some more writing at the end of this week for two weeks, and hopefully get about eight to ten more songs and then we're gonna have the record definitely."

"The main theme is about life in the city."
Probed a little more firmly by our 6 Music mole he also gave us more details on what the theme behind the tunes is this time round:

"One of the main ones is about life in the city, life in the Metropolis and leisure, how people unwind. So that's what I'm thinking the title of the album should be, but I've got to speak to the others first really!"

Kele also told the crowd it wasn't the first time they'd played the venue during their hour long set:

"Last time I was here I played with the school district choir when I was 12 years old."

Some lucky fans were treated to a hug, before Okereke jumped up on top of an amplifier to play his guitar at one point.

Tonight looks set to be another fantastic night with Razorlight, Boy Kill Boy and Dogs on the line-up, and Roger Daltry let it slip to 6 Music he's planning on teaming up with Jonny Borrell and the boys for an old Who track.
