EDIT: The band and their management have denied that these reports are true.

Bloc Party recently entered the studio without telling singer, Kele Okereke, and they have now confirmed that they will be looking for a new lead vocalist.
Kyle Huntington on 09/28/11 - 06:21 AM
Kele Okereke has hinted that Bloc Party are ready to return this summer.
From The InterviewThere are some plans for new stuff. I'm not sure what I can say... I'd be surprised if there wasn't some new stuff before the end of the summer.

Bloc Party is apparently not impressed with Panic! at the Disco after their recent tour dates together. Drummer Matt Tong said, "I couldn't make an accurate summation [about Panic] based on the three-minute conversation I had with the lead singer [Brendon Urie]. But to me, there should always be an inherent difference between playing music and expressing yourself without considering business factors, and the music becoming a means to an end and not being to entertain people or attain some sense of creative self-worth. You know, to be a rung in the ladder...of a business empire."
