Â Kasabian make a welcome return to St Georges Market on Monday 22nd June. Tickets are limited and available now from usual outlets. â€˜West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylumâ€™ is the third chapter in Kasabianâ€™s magnificent journey so far, which began in 2004 with their debut self-titled album.
The new album is a mash-up of towering melodies, electro-punk riffs and psychedelic lullabies, fused with Tom Meighanâ€™s searing vocals, Serge Pizzornoâ€™s bar-raising musical vision, Chris Edwardsâ€™ driving basslines and Ian Matthewsâ€™ galloping drums.
â€œIt’s the soundtrack to an imaginary movie. We want to encourage people to listen to it as whole. We wanted to make an album which takes the listener on a journey,â€ says Serge.
â€˜West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylumâ€™ attacks from the off with opening track â€˜Underdogâ€™, which sees Tom pushing his commanding vocal to its limit. The first single â€˜Fireâ€™ out June 1st is a real party tune and comes alive when the chorus kicks in.
â€˜Vlad The Impalerâ€™ is another turbo-charged rock anthem and was available as a free download from March 31st for 4 days only on www.kasabian.co.uk. â€œVlad is a total chaos tune,â€ enthuses Serge. â€œItâ€™s a call out to all our people, the ones who are tuned into our radio station.â€
