If you're anything like us, you've nearly worn out your copy of Bloc Party's Silent Alarm, one of 2005's breakthrough albums, with repeated listens. But now, thanks to Vice Records and a little help from their musical peers, there's a way to make all of Bloc Party's incredible songs sound new again – Bloc Party will be releasing Silent Alarm Remixed on September 13th!

Silent Alarm Remixed is just that – a track-by-track remix of their phenomenal debut. The album boasts reworkings by the likes of Ladytron, Pretty Girls Make Graves, M83, Mogwai, Death from Above 1979 and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The initial pressing of the album will also include a limited edition bonus disc with three b-sides previously unavailable in the US ("Storm and Stress," "Always New Depths," and "Skeletons"), and two acoustic versions of "Plans" and "Storm and Stress."
