Bloc Party Splits Up For 2nd Time

Music group, Bloc Party, have split up once again.

Since their reunion two years ago, the group have managed to release their comeback album ‘Four’ as well as perform at many concerts including Future Music Festival and Splendour in the Grass, before they decided to go their separate ways.

Guitarist Russell Lissack admitted to the National Post that he felt the band wouldn’t last for long as there were a lot of troubles backstage, “Maybe we’ll play an amazing show and we’ll be on a real high and then the next day some minor thing will happen and everyone hates each other”. The band will release one more EP in the next coming months before they part.

Picnic are taking things to the next level this November: We’ll be presenting the debut Australian performance of PILLOWTALK!

The San Francisco trio are seriously one of our favourite acts right now. Their sound hints at a million different influences rolled into one – smooth disco and R&B meets underground house and techno, from Frankie Valli to Theo Parrish, Beach Boys to Larry Heard – their sound is both classic and cutting edge. Whether bringing the sun on Visionquest, cruising between charming pop and deep house with Wolf + Lamb (their Far From Heaven EP is still constantly on repeat) or going deeper still on their Life and Death release, the band are completely infectious from the stunning vocals down to the perfect production.

On the road, the PillowTalk experience show is one mad party. All performed live, the band bring limitless energy to the crowd, engaging with their wit, charm and bucketloads of talent. They’ve been invited to play at some of the world’s biggest and best events like Croatia’s Garden Festival, BPM Festival in Mexico and the 2012 WMC in Miami, and they’ve always left the crowd beaming. Behind the decks they’re no less superb, billed alongside acts like Nicolas Jaar, Soul Clap, Simian Mobile Disco and Tale Of Us, and at the OAF they’ll be DJing both before and after their live set: a 3 hour total performance!

Support acts to be announced. Doors open at 10pm. Presale tickets to this monster gig are $40 through Resident Advisor and Moshtix. Get in quick because this will be off the charts!

Supports are Simon Caldwell (Mad Racket) and Kali (Picnic)
