KASABIAN REVEAL ALL ABOUT NEW SONG

The band talk about their ’Stunt Man’…

Kasabian have spoken out the new song which the band debuted at last weekend’s Glastonbury (June 25).

Inspired by the dare-devil Evel Knievel, the group have written a track called ‘The Stunt Man’ to honour the man who once famously jumped the Snake River Canyon on a motorbike.

Speaking to NME.COM, singer Tom Meighan said: “That guy’s a legend and Serge (Pizzorno – guitarist) wanted to pen a song about him, “the white of the eyes of a stunt man”, what they go through every day. Because a stunt man is like a replica of someone that puts themselves in danger and they’re always living life on the edge.”

He added: “They could die at any moment and I’ve seen the documentary on Evel Knievel and I thought it’d be cool to do something about him. “The eyes of a stunt man” is Evel Knievel living his life, on the edge. Bang. What a finish. There you are.”

Kasabian are set to support Oasis on their US tour, which kicks off at Vancouver’s General Motors Place on September 8.
