Bloc Party is an English indie rock band with artists Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, sampler), Russell Lissack (lead guitar, keyboards), Justin Harris (bass guitar, keyboards, saxophones, backing vocals) and Louise Bartle (drums). Their danceable rock music has made them one of London’s biggest hits.
The band has performed on the Late Show with David Letterman and the Tonight Show, been featured on multiple magazine covers, and performed highly-anticipated sets at major festivals such as Coachella.
The band’s fifth studio album, Hymns, the first to involve Harris and Bartle, was released in January 2016. They have collectively sold over three million albums worldwide.
