Kasabian say their new album will ‘sound like a new born baby’ – watch

Tom Meighan and Serge Pizzorno discuss their sixth album at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas

Kasabian have given a prediction of what their next album might sound like.

The group spoke to NME at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas earlier this week (February 18), where they won Best British Band supported by Marshall and Best Album.

When asked what their follow-up to last year’s ’48:13′ would sound like, singer Tom Meighan answered: “Like a new born baby,” with guitarist Serge Pizzorno adding: “Wow, can’t put it any better than that.”

Kasabian also gave their picks for who should top the bill of this year’s Glastonbury Festival, which they headlined in 2014, choosing Dexys Midnight Runners (whose singer Kevin Rowland presented an award to the band on the night) and rap group Cypress Hill.

The Leicester band scored the two prestigious gongs at the ceremony earlier this week at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. They were presented with the award for Best Album – for 2014’s ’48:13′ – by Rowland.

Kasabian were also named Best British Band supported by Marshall, presented by magician Dynamo. “Everybody, this is fucking Dynamo. Hello Dynamo,” Meighan said. “We’re very humbled, privileged and proud to win this award because we’ve been doing this since we were 16. Thanks very much NME. God bless.”

The line-up for the NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas includes Palma Violets, Fat White Family, The Wytches and Slaves. The tour began last night (February 19) and tickets are available now.
