Kasabian

Passed

This event has been and gone.

Fresh from their triumph at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend and scene-stealing performance at T in The Park, Kasabian are all set to take the roof off O2 Academy Brixton on August 20th, just days before their headline sets at Reading and Leeds.

The festival stalwarts are firing on all cylinders this summer with the release of blistering new turbo charged single 'Switchblade Smiles' (out now). Written and produced by Sergio Pizzorno, 'Switchblade Smiles' is a high-speed thrills ride through needle-sharp electro bass, haunting neo-psychedelic corners and Beastie Boys’ swagger.

Voted Best British Band at this year's NME Awards, Kasabian's new, 13-track live album 'Live!:Live At The O2' and DVD 'I Hear Voices' are out now and document last year's epic arena tour.

Featuring

Kasabian

Kasabian appearing at this event

A glorious synth-tinged melting pot of indie rock that will caress the eardrums. Formed in Leicester while still at school, they took their name from Linda Kasabian, one of the members of the Charles Manson cult. Their electronica-indie rock fusion akin to Primal Scream combined with the rough vocal style and unrepentant Mancunian swagger of Oasis has firmly established them as more than just a flash in the pan and injected a large dose of energy back into the Brit-rock scene.
