Following the mammoth announce last week that sent shockwaves through Bloc Party fans as the band revealed they will be performing their debut album ‘Silent Alarm’ live and in full to Australian audiences for the very first time this November, Sydney fans have leapt at the chance to party like it’s 2005 completely selling out the Hordern Pavilion in record time.

Due to phenomenal demand, those Sydney-siders who missed out on snapping up one of these widely sought after tickets have another chance with a second Hordern Pavilion show added. Tickets on sale now, but you better hurry they won’t be on sale for long! Shows in Melbourne, Brisbane & Perth are also selling fast so get in there quick so you don’t miss out!

Ageing as well as anything released in the past 20 years (if not better), the jagged rhythms and disparate electronic elements of ‘Silent Alarm’ sound as crucial today as they did 13 years ago. Sound-tracking everything from all night raves to desolate breakups, the record has earned a special place in the hearts of its fans.

Fans and critics began to hop on board as ‘Silent Alarm’s first single, a double A-side featuring So Here We Are and Positive Tension (with it’s clarion call of “so fucking useless”), made a huge impact in their native UK, paving the way for a release in February 2005.

Singles Banquet, Helicopter and the aforementioned Positive Tension put Bloc Party’s technicolour ambitions on dazzling display as they joined bands like Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand in ushering in a new generation of English guitar bands to the world.
