Kasabian’s West Ryder 8th in Top 100
English rock outfit Kasabian charts at No. 8 on Top 100 Albums with its third set, “West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum” (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment). That follows a strong No. 1 debut in the United Kingdom (the band’s second in a row, after 2006’s “Empire’) on sales of 98,000. “Asylum,” which includes last week’s No.3 U.K. hit single “Fire,” is also new at No. 4 in Ireland. Kasabian’s U.K. dates extend through the summer and the band plays the Academy, Glasgow tonight (June 18).
