Kasabian slam My Chemical Romance

Band describe Emo rockers as 'clowns'

Kasabian have slammed My Chemical Romance, labelling the band “clowns” who “don’t have anything positive to say.”

The Leicester five-piece criticised the Emo rockers as the band look set to go to the top of the charts with new single ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’, reports The Sun.

Singer Tom Meighan said: “It’s like ventriloquists’ music. It’s weird and dark. They don’t have anything positive to say. The only good news is that it won’t last. These clowns won’t be around for much longer.

“Their make-up will flake off and the scene will die out. And it can’t happen soon enough.”

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno added: “I just can’t relate to it. We are about decadence, having a good time and getting off your head. We champion youthful rebellion.

“We’re into peace and love, spreading harmony and having respect for people. But these people are the absolute opposite. It’s sad.

“These emo kids should get out more and try and have a good time instead.”

Meanwhile My Chemical Romance have announced a new UK tour for spring.
