Kasabian - Custom House Square, Belfast - 23rd August 2017

Kasabian announce Custom House Square show with Blossoms

UK rock giants Kasabian have announced a return to Belfast at Custom House Square on Tuesday 22nd August 2017 with special guests Touts.

Kasabian are back with an explosive, career best album brimming with confidence, swagger and huge tunes. ‘For Crying Out Loud’, their sixth studio album, is due to be released April 28th on Columbia Records.

Written and produced by Kasabian wizard Serge Pizzorno, and recorded at the Sergery, his Leicester studio, ‘For Crying Out Loud’ features 12 tracks that encapsulate everything that makes Kasabian one of this country’s best ever bands. First single ‘I’m In Love With A Psycho’ is a big, fat pop song with an irrepressible hook. Other highlights include the soon-to-be-summer-anthem ‘Bless This Acid House’, the contagious ‘Good Fight’ and the rock steady angst of ‘’Ill Ray (the King)’. Lead singer Tom Meighan has never sounded so good, wrapping himself around the addictive hooks.

“I decided to give myself six weeks to write an album like they used to do back in the day and that became really inspiring” Serge recalls. “I made sure there was no fat on anything, it was going to be classic songs, no self-indulgence, nothing was going on there that shouldn’t. I’d heard Berry Gordy had said if you’ve not got them in the first four bars then you’re finished, so I went in with this old school attitude of song-writing.”

Following the more electronic direction on 2014’s ‘48:13’ Kasabian were keen to make a truly great guitar album. “There was an ambition to save guitar music from wherever the hell it’s going. We’re trying to save it from being written off as just old music. We wanted to make a very positive album full of hope with guitars to remind people that it’s still relevant.”

Kasabian have four UK #1 albums to their name and have sold over 5.5 million albums worldwide. They’ve won a Brit, seven NME awards, four Q Awards and have headlined Glastonbury Festival, as well as V Festival, T in the Park, and numerous festivals worldwide.
