“I decided to give myself six weeks to write an album like they used to do back in the day and that became really inspiring” Serge Pizzorno recalls. “I made sure there was no fat on anything, it was going to be classic songs, no self-indulgence, nothing was going on there that shouldn’t. I’d heard Berry Gordy had said if you’ve not got them in the first four bars then you’re finished, so I went in with this old school attitude of song-writing.”

Following the more electronic direction on 2014’s 48:13 Kasabian were keen to make a truly great guitar album. “There was an ambition to save guitar music from wherever the hell it’s going. We wanted to make a very positive album full of hope with guitars to remind people that it’s still relevant.”

Kasabian have four UK No.1 albums to their name and have sold over 5.5 million albums worldwide. They’ve won a Brit, seven NME awards, four Q Awards and have headlined Glastonbury Festival, as well as V Festival, T in the Park, and numerous festivals worldwide.
