As Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke announces a solo UK tour, Getintothis’ Adam Lowerson has all you need to know.
Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has announced a full solo UK tour for later in 2017, including a date at Liverpool’s Arts Club Loft on October 21.
The tour comes in support of forthcoming album Fatherland, which will be released on October 6 and features guest performances from the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae and Years and Years’ Olly Alexander.
Fatherland will be Okereke‘s third solo effort, following on from 2014’s Trick. The name is inspired by the Bloc Party becoming a father for the first time late last year, and sees him taking on a more ‘organic’ sound.
