    There will be a new Bloc Party album in 2012.

    Kele Okereke has confirmed that an album is due in 2012.

    The band's frontman told Radio 1 that their fourth album, which will follow 2008's Intimacy, is on its way. The band is currently rocking and working in New York.

    The Party didn't get here easily, though! Okereke intimated that he was busy with his solo career, and during that period, his mates auditioned new singers so they could keep momentum going. The band told NME they were looking to fill the Okereke void, and then quickly backpedalled.

    Management denied the claims, with some members of the media suggesting the band tried to pull a fast one on and to "punk" the media.

    Are you excited for a new Bloc Party album?
