Bloc Party today debut their brand new single ‘Stunt Queen’ and announce a show at London’s prestigious Roundhouse, ahead of one of their biggest ever live shows at the legendary Hollywood Bowl this weekend.
‘Stunt Queen’ is Bloc Party’s first new material since the release of their fifth album ‘HYMNS’ at the start of this year, and their first song to be written and recorded by the line-up of Kele Okereke (vocals, guitar),Russell Lissack (guitar), Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums). The track was produced byBarclaycard Mercury Prize & Brit Award winning record producer, mixer Charlie Andrew (alt-j).
“Stunt Queen has its genesis in an idea that dates back to the Australian tour we did at the start of 2016,”says Okereke. “It was an idea that we worked on at sound checks and was one of the first ideas to come along after Justin and Louise joined the band. Playing the Hollywood Bowl feels like a significant milestone for the band and we wanted to mark it with a new release. We’re excited to be playing our biggest ever headline gig in the US and releasing new material in the same week.”
