Kasabian stick it to their fans
Kasabian launch into 2010 with their explosive highly charged new single ‘Vlad The Impaler’, taken from their No.1 album ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, which has sold over 500,000 copies so far.
The album was one of the biggest selling of 2009 and yielded the band ‘Best Album’ at the Q Awards, as well featuring highly in a whole host of magazine and newspaper’s album of the year lists.
Following Kasabian’s seismic November arena tour, which was preceded by a 20-date summer run and 9 massive stadium shows with Oasis, they resume touring duties in Australia for a series of New Year ‘Big Day Out’ gigs. Written by Sergio Pizzorno and co-produced by Sergio and Dan The Automator ‘Vlad The Impaler’ is one of many highlights on the record. A turbo-charged rock anthem and full on rant from start to finish sped along by Tom Meighan’s pulsing vocal, Sergio’s bar-raising musical vision, Chris Edwards’ mesmerising basslines and Ian Matthews’ galloping drums. “Vlad is a total chaos tune,” enthuses Sergio. “It’s a call out to all our people, the ones who are tuned into our radio station.”
Kasabian - Sergio Pizzorno (Songwriter, Guitar, Vocals), Tom Meighan (Vocals), Chris Edwards (Bass) and Ian Matthews (Drums) have been announced as the headliners for T in the Park next year. It’s already set to be one of the musical highlights for 2010.
