Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno claims the band feel they have been "training 10 years" to make their new album
Kasabian feel they have been "training 10 years" to make their new album.
The band - made up of frontman Tom Meighan, guitarist Serge Pizzorno, drummer Ian Matthews and bassist Chris Edwards - launched their new record '48:13', named after the record's running time, at Abbey Road Studios in London yesterday (01.02.14).
Serge, who wrote and produced the album, said: "We kept everything direct musically and tried to combine electronical, hip hop and late 60s rock and roll.
"It feels like we've been training 10 years for this. I hope you enjoy the record."
Tom joked it was the "speech of the year" and later spoke of his excitement ahead of the band's debut headline set at Glastonbury Festival this summer.
Asked about rumoured fellow headliners Metallica, he said: "They're amazing, who [else] do people want, The Beach Boys?"
The experimental new record features tracks including 'Bumblebeee', which was named by Serge's three-year-old son Ennio, along with 'Glass' and 'Treat'.
Songs 'Explodes', 'Clouds' and 'Bow' are some of the stand out tracks on the record, along with new single 'Eez-eh' and S.P.S, which Tom claims is about Serge's love for him.
The band's fifth album '48:13' will be released on June 9.
