PostSubject: A Weekend In The City    Sat Dec 18, 2010 9:52 am

2007, Bloc Party headlined on the In New Music We Trust stage at the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in Preston.[45] They also performed at the UK leg of Live Earth on 7 July 2007 at Wembley Stadium.[46] Furthermore, the band played sets at T in the Park and Oxegen 07 that same weekend,[47][48] as well as Glastonbury and the Reading and Leeds Festivals later in 2007.[49][50] Bloc Party announced a tour of Australia and New Zealand in August 2007, which would include a special appearance at the Splendour in the Grass Festival on 5 August.[43] On 17 September 2007, they recorded a set for the PBS show Austin City Limits.[51] a day after playing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival.[43] On 27 October, the band performed a set at London's The Roundhouse with the Exmoor Singers, a London based choir, as part of the BBC Electric Proms. The set included songs from both Silent Alarm and A Weekend In The City along with the first UK live performance of "Flux".[52]
[edit]Intimacy (2008–2009)
"Mercury", the first single from Bloc Party's third album Intimacy, was played as an exclusive on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on 7 July 2008,[53] before being uploaded to the radio station's website fifteen minutes later.[54] The song had a similar electronic sound to the previous single, "Flux".[55] The exclusive had followed a countdown timer which had replaced the band's entire website for three days prior to Lowe's radio show. Many fans were angered by the stunt.[56] After the first play of "Mercury", Okereke stated that previous producers Jacknife Lee and Paul Epworth would be working on the new album.[57] It was also revealed that the single was to be released on 11 August 2008.[53] A music video was unveiled along with the single.[58] Bloc Party's third studio album takes an experimental, electronic direction, despite Okereke suggesting this would not be the case,[59] having said that the sound will have the "rawness" of Silent Alarm, but the "experience" of A Weekend in the City.[60]
