It's a touching story...

CHIKINKI saved the day when touring partners KASABIAN hit trouble over the weekend.

The two future-pop bands have been out on a co-headline tour together, which was due to finish up at Southampton Joiners on Sunday (March 7).

However, when Kasabian’s van broke down they were unable to make the gig. Thankfully, Chikinki spent the afternoon learning the parts to Kasabian track ‘Processed Beats’ for all the Kasabian fans who turned up.

Meanwhile, Chikinki have announced that their debut album will be called ‘Lick Your Ticket’ and will be released on May 31. The original title for the album was to be ‘Take Me Out’, until Franz Ferdinand scored a Top Three hit with their single of the same name.
