Bloc Party returning to the studio

Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack has told Spinner.com that the band are returning to the studio in September, ending their two year hiatus.

Three of the four took on musical projects during the break. Lissack has been touring with Ash for their last tour as well as working on Pin Me Down, Kele released The Boxer and bassist Gordon Moakes formed Young Legionnaire.

In a separate interview with NME, Lissack said “Kele and I started working on Bloc Party stuff. We’re having a bit of a break until the festivals are over, because people have commitments during the summer, but we’re going to get back properly in September and sit in a rehearsal studio to work on new band material.”
