‘Ratchet’ New EP From Bloc Party And Their Plan To Deliver ‘The Nextwave Sessions’ in August
After announcing that they would be going on an indefinite hiatus, Bloc Party has released a new visual/single titled “Ratchet.” They also announced their plan to release a new EP entitled The Nextwave Sessions, on August 13 via Frenchkiss Records.
One of hip-hop’s biggest buzz words over the past couple of years is also the title of the cornerstone song from Bloc Party’s latest release. The wiry U.K. rockers have announced they’ll release The Nextwave Sessions EP on August 13 via Frenchkiss Records.
Opening track “Ratchet,” one of two songs here produced by Dan Carey (Bat for Lashes, Hot Chip), premiered today on BBC Radio 1 (above). Frontman Kele Okereke said the disco-splashed rager has proved to be a hit at live shows. “‘Ratchet’ really came together whilst we were on tour in 2012,” he said in a statement. “We started slipping it into the sets at the start of this year just to try it out and the reactions were insane. We knew we had something special.”
