Bloc Party are currently in the studio, according to frontman Kele Okereke. Though he can’t be certain as they haven’t mentioned anything to him yet.

Okereke told NME: “I was actually having lunch about three weeks ago, just here on Eighth Avenue and I saw somebody walk past and I recognised the haircut. It was Russell. I was like: ‘Hey!’ but he didn’t see me and I followed him around the corner and then I saw Matt, Gordon and Russell all standing outside this rehearsal space. They all went inside”.

He added: “I hope I haven’t been fired. I don’t really know what’s going on, because we haven’t really spoken recently and I’m a bit too scared to ask”.

Kele is due to release a new solo EP, The Hunter’, on 31 Oct.
