Kasabian are currently working on the follow-up to 2014’s ’48:13′ album. As they gear up to release their new album, guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno has said it features “one of the best tunes he’s ever written”.

Last year, rumours started to circulate that the band would be headlining Reading & Leeds 2017. When asked for a response to the rumours and the band’s current activity, a Kasabian spokesperson simply replied: “The band are currently finishing their new album.”

Meanwhile, Interpol have confirmed that they are working on a new album, and issued a due date. They have also announced a 15th anniversary tour for their classic album ‘Turn On The Bright Lights’.
