Bloc Party Announce Summer Tour

Bloc Party fans had better be ready to get the party started again. Though they just wrapped a U.S. tour, the band is coming back in July for a handful of new dates.

The band will kick off the tour with a gig for fan club members (Marshals) on July 7 at New York’s Irving Plaza, and their shows will run through August 10 when they’ll close the tour with a show at Austin, Texas’ Stubb’s. Along the way, the band will receive support from Broken Social Scene, Two Gallants, Secret Machines, and Mew.
