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 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.

    They're just trolling. Like vegans coming to a barbecue to shout at everyone that they hate sausages.

    @Randall-flagg You're right! Some people are allergic to one genre and they think that one band is crap only because is part of that. Funny thing, one account doesn't even have one scrobbling, it looks like someone just made an account to say crap about kasabian LOL. Yes, they're not boring and all their albums sound different. At least they don't do the same thing over and over again!

    I wonder how many albums or songs have heard people who say kasabian are crap. People use to have a wrong idea about this band. I think there's nothing more stupid than saying one band is crap when you only listened to one or two songs, lol. So funny.
