    Bloc Party have now signed to Frenchkiss, the label owned and operated by Les Savy Fav's Syd Butler.

    The Party, who had some drama last summer when it appeared as though frontman Kele Okereke was too busy with solo efforts forcing the band to look elsewhere for work, are currently working on the follow up to Intimacy, which dropped in 2008.

    For Record Store Day on April 21, the foursome will release "She's Hearing Voices," which you may recall was their debut single.

    They will also tour this summer.

    Tour Dates:

    06-26-30 Borlange, Sweden - Peace & Love Festival
    07-04 Gdynia, Poland - Heineken Open'er Festival
    07-08 Turku, Finland - Ruisrock Festival
    07-12 Bilbao, Spain - BBK Live
    07-13-15 Ferropolis, Germany - Melt Festival
    08-03 Los Angeles, CA - Hard Festival
