Kasabian are the great heretics of British rock; 21st century renegades with a romantic’s heart, a poet’s lust for life and a lysergic vision to sear the eyeballs of anyone who would doubt them.

“The third record is the one you’re judged on” says Serge Pizzorno, referring to the band’s extraordinary new album The West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum.

Stardate: Summer 2006. As these words are being written, Kasabian are jetlagged, but happy. Three days ago, they returned from Mexico City, where a disused supermarket full of saucer-eyed devotees treated them like returning heroes. “They even sang along to the keyboards in Processed Beats,” exclaims Serge Pizzorno.

Can a record be legendary before it has even come out? You might think you know Kasabian.

KASABIAN are true stars; funny, articulate & passionate about what they believe in. In a time of faceless plastic pop and lightweight indie jangle its refreshing to hear an album that is so unique, complex, and different from anything else around. KASABIAN’s eponymous debut album is a multi-layered blend of full-on rock’n’roll, dark electronics, widescreen atmospherics, hard hip-hop beats, acid house euphoria, and terrace chant catchiness. No surprise since they grew up during the height of the hardcore rave scene and Oasis, and are well into their football, being longtime fans of Leicester City. KASABIAN released their debut album KASABIAN on 6th Sept. It features their Top 20 hit, Club Foot, and new versions of it’s limited edition predecessors, Reason Is Treason and L.S.F. (Lost Souls Forever), as well as upcoming single Processed Beats (out 11 Oct). Catch them after their V and Reading/Leeds Festival appearances on these headline shows.
