Bloc Party announce 3Arena date for October

Bloc Party have announced that they will play their seminal debut album "Silent Alarm" in its entirety on a European tour later this year.

The six-date run begins October 15 in Amsterdam, and will make stops in cities including Paris, Berlin and London.

You can see the dates in full below, with tickets going on sale this Friday and available here. The tour will conclude with a show at London's Alexandra Palace on October 24. There are now no confirmed plans to bring the shows to North America.

Silent Alarm was released in February 2005 and peaked at Number 3 on the Official Albums Chart.

It's not too unfair to label Bloc Party one of the great "diminishing returns" acts, as each new album sounded less and less immediate and by the time 2016's rather awful Hymns arrived, the band resembled a shadow of its former self with only half of the original line-up in place.
