Bloc Party's New Album Heavier Than Last

Crossposted from MTVnews:

If Bloc Party were an actual block party, you might say they were broadening their guest list.

"This time around we've been more open-ended about our ideas, seeing them going in different ways," bassist Gordon Moakes

"It was about being quite conscious about saying, 'OK, we're known for those kinds of songs, but it's not necessary to keep doing them.' " — Bloc Party's Gordon Moakes said of the British dance rockers' second studio album (see "The Bloc Party CD Avalanche Continues — And A New LP Is Slated For '06"). "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."

Bloc Party have been writing new music since before their debut, Silent Alarm, even hit shelves, so the band entered the studio this summer with no shortage of confidence.
