Kasabian: ‘Velociraptor!’ is our best album yet’ – video

Band reveal all on their NME cover shoot

Kasabian have called their new album ‘Velociraptor!’ their best album yet.

In the video which can be seen above, the band discuss their new album which was released on Monday (September 19). Singer Tom Meighan calls it the album they have been “waiting to make”.

He added that is was “going to surprise some people. We’ve never had an album with massive anthems on. I know it’s going to be massive and if I’m wrong cut my head off”.

Serge Pizzorno says: “Altogether it’s the best one yet.” You can go behind the scenes on Kasabian‘s cover shoot by clicking on the video at the top of the page. For the full interview, get the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now (September 21) or available digitally
