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."
Bloc Party will be releasing their single "The Prayer" on January 29th internationally through Wichita Recordings. It comes in several forms which you can check out below. No word yet on an American release. You can stream the single here.
