The price of gas doesn't have Bloc Party singing the blues because the band will be expanding their summer tour dates for all to enjoy. Not only are the lads performing at Toronto's Olympic Island Festival and Vice's Intonation Festival in Chicago, but they will also be touring into August with none other than Mew (finally!), Broken Social Scene and Secret Machines, depending on the date.
Members of Bloc Party's fan club, Marshals, will be able to get in on an exclusive pre-sale for these dates on May 15. Tickets for the normal folk will be available on May 20, except for the Berkeley date, which goes on sale May 26.
