The London four-piece remain guarded on the details...
In an online exclusive interview with Bloc Party this afternoon, bassist Gordon Moakes revealed their second album will be released within the next six months.
Talking to DiS before their headlining performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, DiS gleaned a few details on album number two.
"In six months... we'll have the record out," stated Moakes cautiously, adding, "I think our pressure is to innovate more. I don't think anyone expects us to be more commercial. Our aim is to make the best music we possibly can."
The band revealed that no final decision had been reached on a producer though they were 'very close' to deciding.
Moakes also added that his work on the much-vaunted Yourcodenameis:milo collaborative Desert Sessions-esque album is already complete, "I don't know if Graham Coxon has done it or is going to do it," he said "Ross from The Futureheads did one and Lucas from Maximo Park was just about to last I heard. It'll be out when they've got enough for a mini-album or EP."
Bloc Party play the V Festival this August and Coachella Festival in the United States next month. You can read the full interview with the band on Drowned in Sound later this week.
