Kasabian make a most welcome return this summer with a series of must see shows, armed with a high-octane new album fuelled by their trademark swagger. New single ‘SCRIPTVRE’ arrives in the wake of their snappy track ‘Alygatyr’ and heralds a brave new world from Serge’s magic kingdom.
Produced by Serge Pizzorno and Fraser T Smith, mixed by Spike Stent and written by Serge, ‘SCRIPTVRE’ is one of the many standout tracks on their eagerly anticipated new album ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’ unveiled August 5th on Columbia Records.
Serge says: ‘SCRIPTVRE is about rewriting the story you tell yourself. Editing your own script’.
Of the new album, Kasabian’s seventh, he adds: “One thing about this record I feel over the other ones, is it definitely feels like a body of work that belongs together. It was a beautiful moment in mastering hearing it as a piece. I think it really holds up in our seven albums….The Magnificent Seven”.
The band tore up the rule book when they toured the UK on a sold out,17 date UK tour last autumn, and are set to do the same this summer with a string of landmark live shows.
They are special guests to Liam Gallagher at Knebworth June 3rd and 4th and headline the Isle of Wight June 18th.
Kasabian are: Serge Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards, drummer Ian Matthews and guitarist Tim Carter.
“It’s definitely music to make you feel like anything’s possible,” Serge says of The Alchemist’s Euphoria. “And it feels really exciting because, like always, this band can go absolutely anywhere.”
Enjoy the ride!
