Bloc Party unveil new single 'The Girls Are Fighting'

With their long-awaited new album due out in the coming months, Bloc Party have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'The Girls Are Fighting' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, filmed at the legendary Repton Boxing Club, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Traps' in previewing their new LP 'Alpha Games', which drops on the 29th April via Infectious / BMG.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Kele Okereke said, “There was no specific incident that inspired this song – it was more a composite of lots of things I've seen over the years when being in clubs and seeing violence erupt with feuding love rivals. I've always had a slight obsession with those sorts of moments; like a fuse being lit, when actions turn from words into violence. You can learn a lot about who people really are in those moments. I think 'The Girls Are Fighting' is kind of self-explanatory – someone's been selling dreams to someone they shouldn't have and it's caught up with them. I just wanted to capture that moment of going from naught to ten in an evening, in a sweaty nightclub. I'm really pleased with the arrangement for this track because it has this 1970s glam rock feel meets Adam Ant feel. I love what Louise is doing on the tom toms.”
