Biography

Kasabian are an alternative rock band from Leicester, England, United Kingdom. The band consists of Tom Meighan (vocals), Sergio Pizzorno (guitar, synths, vocals), Christopher Edwards (bass), Ian Matthews (drums) and touring guitarist Jason Mehler. The band has been compared with the likes of Primal Scream, with their similar electronica-indie rock fusion and Oasis, with whom they share their confidence, vision, swagger and rough vocal style.

It has been speculated that the name "Kasabian" is taken from the getaway driver (named Linda Kasabian) for the Tate murders committed by the Manson Family.

The band formed in 1999 in Leicester, England. Their first album was simply "Kasabian", and in 2004 received lacklustre reviews. However, tracks such as Cutt Off and L.S.F (Lost Souls Forever) reached the UK Top 10, and with 2 more Top 20 hits and the album peaking at #4 in the UK Album Chart, they defied the critics.

The second album, "Empire", was released on the 28th of August 2006. The first single from the album, also titled "Empire", was widely regarded as a musical success, with its change of beat reminiscent of "Take Me Out", and its catchy chorus. This was then followed by the release of the single "Shoot The Runner" and most recently, "Me Plus One".

The third album, "West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum", was released on the 5th of June 2009. The hit single off the album "Fire" was one of the Top 5 singles in the UK charts at the time, reaching #3 in the Official UK Singles Chart.

"Switchblade Smiles," the first single from Kasabian's fourth album, Velociraptor, was debuted during Zane Lowe's show on BBC Radio 1 on June 7, 2011.
