Bloc Party Countdown Angers Fans

by | 07 July 2008

BLOC PARTY fans have been irritated with the conclusion of a cryptic countdown which appeared on the band's website.

It was thought that the band may have implemented the clock as way to give away new music when it hit zero.

However, when it did finally run out at 11am today (July 7th), it simply revealed a plug for Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show tonight.

The NME reports it has received numerous emails complaining about the stunt.

"It's a bit pointless," said one user.

"They could have just put up the info about the show on their website and not got our hopes up about the possibility of hearing new music straightaway."

Many fans are still hoping that new material may feature on Zane Lowe's show, perhaps providing details of the follow-up to last year's A WEEKEND IN THE CITY.
