Kasabian To Release 'Epic' Album In October

Kasabian have promised fans an "epic" bout of new material on their forthcoming album.

Currently holed up in a studio in San Francisco, Kasabian are planning a number of festival slots this summer. Due to appear at RockNess, the Leicester group will also perform at Spain's Bilbao BBK.

Set to debut new material, it seems that the group's fourth album is almost complete.

Speaking to ThisIsLeicestershire, a rep from Sony / BMG explained that the group were at the mixing stage. Producer Dan The Automator has taken control, with sessions hidden away on the West Coast.

Continuing, guitarist Serge Pizzorno explained that the new album would be another "epic" instalment. "Well, it's epic," he claimed.

"It's big songs that make you feel like anything's possible. It's a really positive record. I suppose it's a combination of all three records but we've just taken it a bit further."
Continuing, the guitarist claimed that Kasabian aimed to improve with each record. "I'm really excited about it, because after the last record, people really liked it and wanted to know what was next, and I'm happy to say that it's got better. I'm excited about playing it live – there are tunes on there that are going to take people to a new place."

Kasabian are set to release their new album in October.
