Today marks a significant moment for fans of indie rock band Bloc Party as they make their 2005 single ‘Two More Years’ available on digital streaming platforms for the first time. Originally a standalone release, the track was later included in the re-release of the band’s debut album, Silent Alarm, but has been absent from streaming services until now. Alongside this digital debut, the two original B-sides for the single – ‘Hero’ and the Streets’ remix of ‘Banquet’ – are also being made available to listeners for the first time.

This announcement coincides with Bloc Party’s achievement of selling out their largest show to date at Crystal Palace Park in London, scheduled for Sunday, July 7, 2024. With 25,000 attendees expected, very limited VIP tickets remain for what promises to be a memorable summer event in South London.

In addition to their monumental London show, the band has revealed plans for two new headline performances in Ireland this summer, commemorating two decades of Bloc Party. These special shows will take place at Belfast’s The Telegraph Building on Thursday, July 4th, and Dublin’s 3Arena on Friday, July 5th. Tickets are currently available, offering fans the opportunity to experience a celebration of the band’s 20-year journey, featuring a complete performance of their seminal debut album Silent Alarm, along with other fan favorites.

The release of ‘Two More Years’ digitally follows the recent unveiling of the Little Thoughts EP last month, marking the beginning of a series of releases that will see Bloc Party sharing a plethora of rare tracks, deep cuts, and fan favorites on streaming services, ensuring their entire catalog is accessible to fans worldwide for the first time.

Bloc Party’s impact on the indie scene has been profound, with recent achievements including a co-headline tour with Interpol in Australia and supporting Paramore. From their hooky post-punk beginnings to ambitious genre-mashing endeavors, the band’s artistic evolution has been constant since the early 2000s. Lead by the passionate frontman Kele Okereke, Bloc Party’s initial EPs played a crucial role in shaping British indie rock for years to come. Their experimentation with electronic textures in their musical style, culminating in their groundbreaking debut album Silent Alarm in 2005, solidified their status as trailblazers. Subsequent albums such as A Weekend in the City (2007), Intimacy (2008), Four (2011), Hymns (2016), and their most recent record Alpha Games (2022) have further showcased their innovation and enduring relevance in the music landscape.
