Kasabian planning to release new material before 2011 festivals

Serge Pizzorno's soundtrack for 'London Boulevard' could shape new songs

Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has said he is keen to release new material before the band play live shows next summer.

The Leicester band are already confirmed to headline RockNess and the Isle Of Wight Festival next June, with the guitarist telling NME fans should be expecting some new additions to the setlists.

When asked if Kasabian would be playing new songs at the festivals, Pizzorno replied: “Definitely. There may even be something out by then too. I’d like there to be. I’d love to [have something out], because it always gets you going when you’re playing the new shit.”

Pizzorno was speaking around the release of London Boulevard, the British film he has composed the soundtrack for. He said that some of the material from the soundtrack may influence new Kasabian songs.

“There may be a tune or so from the film that could surface too,” he said. “In some ways, the film and the score might be almost a little glimpse into what will happen with the band in the future.”
