, Staff

Bloc Party have revealed plans for a stateside tour in support of their forthcoming release, Four. The British group will cross the pond for a tour of North America that stops in Boston for a show at the House of Blues on Friday, September 14. Tickets for the show are available through Live Nation for $27.50 and $35.

Four, the band’s fourth studio effort and first since 2008′ Intimacy, will hit stores on August 21. Produced by Alex Newport (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In), the album was recorded and mixed in New York City. After a brief hiatus, in which frontman Kele Okereke recorded a solo album called The Boxer and other members pursued other music projects, the band reunited in the winter of 2011 to work on a new album together.

“It is the best thing that we have ever done and finishing this record has taken us on quite a journey,” declared frontman Kele Okereke of Four in a blog post to fans.
