Our history with the Leicester lads goes way back to 2000 when photographer Sam Jones snapped the fresh-faced foursome in a somewhat cosy rehearsal space.
Looking not altogether different to how they do on this week’s cover, Kasabian pose in 2004.
Serge perfects the smouldering death stare he’s rocking on this week’s cover, way back in 2004.
Pieter M Van Hattem headed out to Toronto in 2005 to shoot the band during a tour.
NME takes Tom and Serge down the pub in 2006 for a cheeky lager and Maker’s Mark chaser. Cheers!
Back in rock ‘n’ roll mufti during the same 2009 shoot. Looks like they preferred the dressing up box.
Later in the year Kasabian were back on the cover. NME travelled to San Francisco to shoot them stateside.
We caught up with Kasabian at Hookend Studios near Reading earlier this year. For a full, in-depth interview with the band grab this week’s mag.
