Known for their excellent festival performances the band has never been one to take any prisoners. The songs lyrics which are borrowed from warfare and gang fights will be banded around on the massive winter tour that the band will produce. The band have been busy preparing for the arena tour for several months.
The band have named their latest album after a pre-historic killer, the work which has been completed on their new album will be named Velociraptor. The bands much awaited new album will be released on September 19th, Kasabian have revealed they are hoping for a number one selling album.
