Kasabian, one of the UK’s most successful and beloved bands, have revealed plans for a run of North American live dates in September -including stops in New York City, DC, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and more.
The band released their sixth studio album For Crying Out Loud in the UK on May 5th, landing them their 5th UK #1 album. For Crying Out Loud is available on all DSPs in the US now via RED. The band will release a physical version of the LP in the US via Third Man Records on September 1st. Lead singles “You’re In Love With A Psycho” and “Bless This Acid House” are buoyant, spirited sing-a-longs, bursting with the band’s renowned swagger and brilliant knack for rousing choruses.
Kasabian have firmly established themselves as British national treasures, with a flawless discography and legions of fans. In the space of their previous five album releases they’ve pocketed a UK GRAMMY-equivalent BRIT Award, seven NME awards and four Q Awards. Their euphoric live sets have taken them to the headline spots at multiple music festivals, including the world’s biggest: England’s legendary Glastonbury Festival. It’s been three years since North American fans were treated to a tour.
Watch the band perform “Bless This Acid House” live on the BBC’s Later With Jools Holland.
Following the more electronic direction of 2014’s acclaimed 48:13, Kasabian were keen to make a truly great guitar album. Serge Pizzorno says about For Crying Out Loud, “We wanted to make a very positive album full of hope with guitars to remind people that it’s still relevant.” The result is one of the most energetic and dynamic rock records of the year.
Kasabian are: Serge Pizzorno (guitar and vocals), Tom Meighan (vocals), Chris Edwards (bass), Ian Matthews (drums) and Tim Carter (Guitars).
