Kasabian preparing ‘hypnotic techno ’60s road movie’ album

Band speak about forthcoming third album

Kasabian have talked about their forthcoming third studio album, revealing that techno and road movies have been big influences.

The Leicester said they were feeling confident about the studio sessions, claiming the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Empire’ will be their best effort yet.

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno said, “The music we’re making is rooted in techno and dance music but it’s also influenced by the 60’s.


“The new stuff is sounding really hypnotic. The tunes we’ve done so far remind me of a really good road movie.”

Pizzorno confirmed that limited-edition EP release ‘Fast Fuse’ will make the tracklisting, plus ‘Silver Bullet’. “There’s a duet on there as well which’ll fuckin’ blow everyone away,” he said.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, singer Tom Meighan confidently added, “This is the best record we’ve made so far – of course, I’m always gonna say that. We’ve got to compete with a title like ‘Empire’ so we’re not making it easy for ourselves.”
