Biography

Leicester, England, United Kingdom (1997 – present)

Kasabian are a band from Leicester, England, United Kingdom. The band consists of Tom Meighan (vocals), Sergio Pizzorno (guitar, synths, vocals), Christopher Edwards (bass), Ian Matthews (drums) and current touring guitarist Tim Carter. The band has been compared with the likes of Primal Scream, with their similar electronica-indie rock fusion and Oasis, with whom they share their confidence, vision, swagger and rough vocal style.

The band formed in 1997 in Leicester, England and are named after Linda Kasabian, who was the getaway driver at the Tate-LaBianca murders committed by members of the Manson Family. Their eponymous first album was released in 2004 and received average reviews. However, tracks such as Cutt Off and L.S.F. (Lost Souls Forever) reached the UK Top 10, and with two more Top 20 hits and the album peaking at #4 in the UK Album Chart, they defied the critics.

The second album, Empire, was released on the 28th of August 2006. The first single from the album, also titled Empire, was widely regarded as a musical success, with its change of beat and its catchy chorus. This was then followed by the release of the singles Shoot the Runner and Me Plus One.

The third album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, was released on the 5th of June 2009. The hit single off the album Fire reached #3 in the Official UK Singles Chart, making it the band’s highest charting single to date.

    I present to you a list of reasons why Kasabian and Oasis are basically the same thing! Have a read and see if you agree with me http://amusicaltimetravellingdiamond.wordpress.com/2014/07/20/kasabian-are-just-another-oasis/

    sleepyheadtM,you are the man mate!If you ever run for a president i ll vote for you. Some people think of entertaining music as a guilty pleasure or something. Kasabian are the best.I'm glad they have fans like you.

    @I_Am_Kid_A, i cringed throughout your review. you just tried too hard to sound like a pitchfork writer and failed big time. btw kasabian admitted they never tried to sound or act smart they know what they are made of they got swagger and attitude which is enough for me to get pumped up about pretty much everything. if you listened to the record looking for fun or fuzzy electronic rock you would've loved it, they are not geniuses and they absolutely are not "oasis wannabees". but they are fuckin awesome at what they do and they dont even need me to defend them so i'll stop now

    @I_Am_Kid_A, stopped reading after "Oasis wannabees". Hate biased reviews. OT: I think the new album is ok... It's not their best (which is WRPLA imo). Lyrics are pretty crappy but I never listened to Kasabian for great lyrics to begin with : )
