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.

    The new album is great. Exactly what I expected. But WRPLA and Kasabian are still the best in my opinion.

    Velociraptor was probably more accessible. Especially GK got them loads of new fans, and it's not a "typical" Kasabian song, if there even is such a thing. But all of their albums are different, which I think is a major part of their appeal. They don't play it safe and repeat themselves just because something was successful once.

    48:13 is one of those rare albums that justifies the continued existence of a band, ten years after the fact. it makes me look back at their recent releases (which i've been 50/50 on) and enjoy them MORE. it's up there with s/t and empire. it's amazing.

    I_Am_Kid_A,we all understand that you didn't like it and it's your opinion.But I don't see why you're not bored of talking all the time about an album you dislike... If you ask me,I only talk about music I love.For the rest I don't give a damn.
