Right, time for some BIG Kasabian news. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin.
1. They've got a new album coming out. AWW YEAH.
It's called 'For Crying Out Loud' and the tracklisting looks like this:
Ill Ray (The King)
You’re In Love With A Psycho
Come Back Kid
The Party Never Ends
Are You Looking For Action
All Through The Night
Bless This Acid House
Put Your Life On It
“I decided to give myself six weeks to write an album like they used to do back in the day and that became really inspiring” Serge recalls. “I made sure there was no fat on anything, it was going to be classic songs, no self-indulgence, nothing was going on there that shouldn’t. I’d heard Berry Gordy had said if you’ve not got them in the first four bars then you’re finished, so I went in with this old school attitude of song-writing.” Sounds grand to us, pal.
'For Crying Out Loud' is set for release on 28th April through Columbia.
