Bloc Party tours the world with Mogami ‘Cable for Life’ cables
After a long hiatus, several side projects and a solo album, the four members of British indie rock band Bloc Party regrouped in NYC last year with producer Alex Newport (Death Cab For Cutie, The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In) to record their first album since 2008’s ‘Intimacy’.

Following this summer’s release of their latest album ‘Four’, the band has found themselves back in the charts and on a world tour with Mogami ‘Cable for Life’ packaged cables. 

HHB Communications supplied the band with Mogami Premium Guitar, Studio Accessory and Premium Microphone cables for a string of festival and tour dates that brings them across Europe, America, Japan and Australia, including performances at Pukkelpop, Lollapalooza, Ibiza Rocks and three sold-out headline shows at NYC’s Terminal Five.

Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack comments: “I really didn’t pay much attention to my cables until I started using Mogami. I am surprised at the amount of stress you can put on them night after night without losing any signal or breaking the cable, and they are very transparent.” 

The Mogami 2524 Premium Guitar Cable utilises a high-density shield and conductive PVC layer to eliminate handling noise. This shielding, combined with an oxygen free copper core, allows the true tone of a guitar to ring through. Mogami Microphone and Studio Accessory cables use the same high-quality oxygen free copper core combined with a balanced quad structure that reduces electromagnetic induction, which results in a very high-quality, low-noise, transparent and accurate cable.

Mogami cables are truly a ‘Cable for Life’, backed by a lifetime warranty. The cables and connectors are hand soldiered rather than crimped. They are made from Mogami’s high-quality bulk cable and assembled in the UK with packaging comprised of 90 per cent recycled materials.

Mogami ‘Cable for Life’ products are high-quality cables available in a single-cable package with terminated ends. The line includes a total of 46 cables, including Reference Microphones Cables, Premium Studio Accessory Cables; Premium Guitar Cables, Premium AES/EBU Interface Cables; Analogue 8-channel multicore cables, and Digital 8-channel AES/EBU multicore cables.
