Kasabian want to keep reinventing themselves

Kasabian’s Tom Meighan has revealed that the band hope to keep “reinventing” themselves.

The frontman cited Radiohead as an inspiration in the way they keep changing their sound with each release.

“We always try to reinvent ourselves in the way that a band like Radiohead would do. Or we come at things from another angle,” he told Buzzine.

Meighan explained that the group’s latest album Velociraptor! had a much different concept to their previous LP West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum.

“West Ryder was our concept record,” he said. “We were gonna make our crazy, psychedelia record, which it was, with all these crazy songs in it and then Velociraptor! was back to normal, ‘back-to-basic’ songwriting. Good songwriting, good pop songs.”

Kasabian will headline this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals alongside The Cure and Foo Fighters.

Tom Meighan recently stated that there is a “drought” of rock music in today’s charts.
