Kasabian rocker Tom Meighan says the group's new record 'For Crying Out Loud' mended him after a year from hell in 2016, which saw him split from his long-term girlfriend
Tom Meighan says Kasabian's new album made him "better" following his split from his girlfriend.
The 36-year-old rocker went through a sticky patch in 2016, when he suffered a secret meltdown and separated from his long-term partner Kim James, but he says 'For Crying Out Loud' allowed him to put the "s*** year" into perspective and he's feeling much more positive about the future now.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Tom - who has a four-year-old daughter called Mimi Malone with his ex-girlfriend - admitted: "I had a s*** year.
But sometimes s*** happens in life. You have to face the devil.
"It was just a moment in life and I'll look at it and think, 'Yes, that was s***'. But I've turned the corner. Now things couldn't be better."
On how the group - also comprised of Serge Pizzorno, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - are "stronger than ever" and how the record has made him feel rejuvenated, he continued: "No need to go into details but today I feel so alive.
"I've got my blue eyes back and I had red eyes for a bit. And I really think I'm better because of this album.
"We've had ups and down and s*** thrown at us before but you deal with it and personally, I'm back stronger than ever."
The 'You're In Love With A Psycho' singer says the group have become a solid family and are at their "very best".
He added: "People forget we've been together since being boys. All of us have been through a lot. We've grown up together, we've got kids, we're a family.
"And this album marks us being stronger than ever and at our very best."
