Kasabian are making ‘annihilation music’

Kasabian’s upcoming seventh album will be “annihilation music”.

Kasabian

The band’s guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno has said he’s begun writing the material for the follow-up to 2017’s ‘For Crying Out Loud’, and thinks the record will blow people away, as the “few bits” that he’s written so far are explosive.

Explaining how his solo album – which will be released on Friday (30.08.19) under the name The S.L.P – has impacted work on the Kasabian record, he said: “I’ve started already, and from the few bits that are there already, I know that they would not have existed without this album. The wheels are turning. It’s annihilation music.”

Serge – who is joined in Kasabian by frontman Tom Meighan, Chris Edwards, and Ian Matthews – says working on his solo record has allowed him to “reset”, which has influenced the “next chapter” in Kasabian’s work.

He added: “The next chapter for [Kasabian] feels really exciting for the band because it feels like I’ve seen Earth from outer space. I’ve looked back in. I’ve got a whole new perspective on what we can do next. And we’ll see what we can get away with.”

And the ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’ hitmaker says the group intend to keep making music and will “turn it up a few notches”, thanks to some advice from former Oasis star Noel Gallagher.

Speaking to NME about the future of Kasabian, he said: “More of the same, really. Just turn it up a few notches. We were talking to Noel [Gallagher] the other day and he said – it might have been a Francis Bacon quote – ‘Go for the nervous system.’ “
