Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson has said that he is appearing as a coach on The Voice to boost his band's career.

The frontman, who will make his debut on the BBC1 talent search show this Saturday (January 11), spoke to NME about his role on the show and the motivation behind appearing alongside fellow coaches will.i.am, Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones.

Speaking in this week's issue, which is on newsstands or available digitallynow, Wilson explains: "I love my band and I want our new record to get noticed. I know that everyone is going, 'He thinks he's going to sell more records and more tickets.' And that is why I'm doing it. I'm not a fucking idiot."

Kaiser Chiefs have recently revealed two new songs, 'Bows & Arrows' and 'Misery Company', both of which are taken from the band's forthcoming new album 'Education, Education, Education & War', which will be released on March 31.

The album will be their first since drummer and chief songwriter Nick Hodgson quit last year.
