Praise for Bloc Party + HYMNS:

"HYMNS, represents yet another rebirth, this time with a new rhythm section and a fresh batch of digital tricks. Okereke holds it all together with his warm croon and penchant for writing lyrics that search for spiritual salvation..." - Entertainment Weekly

"Okereke entertains atmospherics and many moments of melodic calm. Meanwhile his lyrics are amongst the most starkly emotional he's ever sung." - Noisey 

"Flirting with euphoric synth-pop and gospel" - OUT

Bloc Party are excited to announce new North American spring tour dates! Touring on the heels of their stunning new record HYMNS, the four piece will also be playing select festivals including SXSW in Austin, TX, Shaky Knees in Atlanta, GA, and Governors Ball in New York, NY.
