After the rumour Kele had left the band, then the rumours the band were auditioning for a new front man (I didn’t quite get through to boot camp), then the band posting a cartoon suggesting Kele hadn’t left the band and Kele releasing a solo album and EP in 2011, the Bloc Party front man has confirmed the band are back in the studio working on album number four.

According to his interview with Zane Lowe on Radio 1 breakfast this morning the band have recorded 2 tracks with another seventeen in the demo phase. Lets hope that the 18 month hiatus sees them return to the Silent Alarm form that shot the band to fame.
