England’s Bloc Party has released five albums in the 15 or so years of its existence, but it’s the band’s breakout debut, Silent Alarm, that has endured as its most memorable output. Named Album of the Year by the NME in 2005, the LP is chock full of tightly wound and focused rock songs, an album in which any of its baker’s dozen tracks could be singles. The riffs are frenetic-even the ballads snarl with angst—and singer Kele Okereke’s painfully earnest vocals are complemented by one of the greatest drumming performances of the decade, intense percussion that teeters on the edge of chaos without actually falling over. The band, sporting a new rhythm section since the 2015 LP Hymns, is playing the classic album in full for Summerstage as part of a six-date limited-run U.S. tour.
