Iconic English rockers, Block Party have unveiled details surrounding their forthcoming sixth studio album, Alpha Games. The record marks the bands first full-length release since 2016’s Hymns.


The announcement is accompanied by the release of a brand new track, Traps. Produced by Nick Launay & Adam Greenspan (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, IDLES), the release is a welcomed return to the post-punk sonics the four-piece explored on their earlier releases.



Speaking of the track, singer, songwriter and guitarist Kele Okereke shares: “From the moment we wrote Traps, we knew it had to be the first thing people heard from this album; playing it in soundchecks on our last tour before it was finished and hearing how it sounded in those big rooms and outdoors.”


Alpha Games is out April 29, 2022. Listen to Traps below.
