has expanded its Intimacytour to include a handful of American dates, all on the West coast in December.
After the band's surprise release of its third studio album on BlocParty.com in August, the British foursome has been on tour, with only a handful of concerts in the U.S. The November through April schedule had Bloc Party traveling from South America through Australia, then on to a dozen European performances, most of which were slated to take place in the band's home country. But the physical version of the LP was released in the States last week, and along with the disc came news of five Pacific-state performances.
Keep an eye on the Bloc Party official site and MySpace, as both tour pages' information differs from the details released by the band's publicist:
10 - Los Angeles, Calif. @ Club Nokia
11 - Oakland, Calif. @ Oracle Arena
12 - Las Vegas, Nev. @ The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
14 - Tempe, Ariz. @ Marquee Theatre
16 - San Diego, Calif. @ House of Blues San Diego
