    maxresdefault (3)

    As part of a run of six European shows, Bloc Party will perform their debut album, Silent Alarm, at Dublin’s 3Arena on October 22.

    Hands down their finest hour, Silent Alarm was released to critical and commercial acclaim in 2005, best known for its singles, double A-side ‘So Here We Are/Positive Tension’, ‘Banquet’ and ‘Pioneers’, as well as 'Helicopters', their calling card. A microcosm of young adult life & global politics by frontman Kele Okereke, it's also wonderful manifesto for finding pleasure in mundanity - not to mention an early example of the melding of indie rock with unexpected genres, which the band, at the time, believed was the only way 21st century rock could survive. We can't say we disagree.

    Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.
