Kasabian launch into 2010 with their explosive highly charged new single ‘Vlad The Impaler’, taken from their No.1 album of the year ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, which has sold over 500,000 copies so far.
The album is one of the biggest selling of the year and yielded the band ‘Best Album’ at this year’s Q Awards as well featuring highly in a whole host of magazine and newspaper’s album of the year lists.
Following Kasabian’s seismic November arena tour, which was preceded by a 20-date summer run and 9 massive stadium shows with Oasis, they resume touring duties in Australia for a series of New Year ‘Big Day Out’ gigs.
Wrtten by Serge Pizzorno and co-produced by Serge and Dan The Automator ‘Vlad The Impaler’ is one of many highlights on the record. A turbo-charged rock anthem and full on rant from start to finish sped along by Tom Meighan’s pulsing vocal, Serge’s bar-raising musical vision, Chris Edwards’ mesmerising basslines and Ian Matthews’ galloping drums.
“Vlad is a total chaos tune,” enthuses Serge. “It’s a call out to all our people, the ones who are tuned into our radio station.”
Kasabian – Serge Pizzorno (Songwriter, Guitar, Vocals), Tom Meighan (Vocals), Chris Edwards (Bass) and Ian Matthews (Drums) have recently been announced as the headliners for T in the Park next year. It’s already set to be one of the musical highlights for 2010.
