Kaiser Chiefs ‘not dropped by record label’

Ricky Wilson and co deny tabloid claims

Kaiser Chiefs have denied tabloid reports that they have been dropped by their record label.

A story in today’s (May 17) News Of The World suggested the band’s agreement with B-Unique had been terminated.

However, a spokesman for the band told NME.COM there is “no contractual change to report”.

“The band has two records left to run on an existing contract,” they said. “Kaiser Chiefs will take their first break in six years at the end of the summer. As with many successful artists, the band is considering creative options to improve the way their music reaches people ahead of their fourth album.”

The representative did confirm one part of the news report was true, however – that guitarist Andrew ‘Whitey’ White is to become a father “any day now”.
