Bloc Party Going 'Heavier, More Electronic' On Second LP


"This time around we've been more open-ended about our ideas, seeing them going in different ways", bassist Gordon Moakes said of the British rockers' second studio album to MTV. "The first record was songs we'd been playing a certain way for a number of years. With this stuff, we've taken it heavier in places, more electronic in places, just wider-sounding."

"It was about not limiting ourselves and being quite conscious about saying, 'OK, we're known for those kinds of songs, but it's not necessary to keep doing them,' " Moakes explained.

Bloc Party enlisted former Compulsion guitarist Garrett "Jackknife" Lee, who has produced albums for Snow Patrol, Kasabian, Editors and Aqualung.

"He's definitely got an ear for what works in a rock way, and he's into the other stuff we're into too," Moakes said. "We were fairly confident in the song structures going in, but he did shape it more and give more structure to the songs."

A release date has yet to be determined, but Moakes expects the album to hit stores in the fall.
