Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has revealed he has several songs ready for his band's sixth studio album

Kasabian are working on a new album.

The band's frontman Tom Meighan has teased that he's started penning tracks for the group's next offering, which will be the follow-up to 2014's '48:13', after he was inspired by their recent surprise set at Leicester City's Premier League victory parade earlier this month.

Speaking to NME magazine, the 35-year-old singer said: "I'm not supposed to tell ya, but we've got some new songs and things ready for the future. This euphoria is bound to channel into it. We're in such a good place right now."

Songwriter-and-guitarist Serge Pizzorno - who is also joined in the band by bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews - had previously shared how he'd been stockpiling guitar riffs, melodies and lyrics for their next record, but admitted a lot of it was "utter nonsense".

He previously said: "I'm mooching about. I've got a little studio at home so I'm always in there, just escaping from reality ...I hate phones, I can't stand them but the one thing that I use is the voice recorder. The problem is I've just got thousands to sieve through and most of it is complete and utter nonsense. It's me in the middle of the night, recording like a melody, and then going in the next day and it's just like a load of noise - oh, it's terrible!"

Meanwhile, the 'Fire' rockers' next gig will see them perform at the stadium in their hometown on May 28 to throw the "ultimate party" for the football club's fans.

Serge said: "There's such an energy in the city at the minute. In a way it feels like we're almost centre of the universe. Everyone is watching. We've always wanted to play at the King Power and after this season ... we had to do it. No matter how it goes, we're going to need a place to all stand together and reflect on what's happened because it is just unbelievable. In the stadium, with us playing our music. There is no better way. We're so proud."
