Kasabian mixing new album
Kasabian are mixing their fourth album.
The English indie group's label have confirmed they have completed recording and now putting the finishing touches to the disc, set for release in October.
A source at the band's record company, Sony/BMG, said: "They're still working on it, although it's nearly finished. They're mixing it. It's all secret - I can't even give you a clue about what it sounds like because we haven't heard it."
Kasabian are thought to have worked with producer Dan The Automator, who oversaw their last record, 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum', and recorded in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The 'Fire' hitmakers have talked about a number of different influences on the album, including grunge and punk, but said they will retain the psychedelic and electronic elements which have always been part of their sound.
Guitarist and main songwriter Serge Pizzorno recently described the record, saying: "Well, it's epic. It's big songs that make you feel like anything's possible. It's a really positive record. I suppose it's a combination of all three records but we've just taken it a bit further.
"I'm really excited about it, because after the last record, people really liked it and wanted to know what was next, and I'm happy to say that it's got better. I'm excited about playing it live - there are tunes on there that are going to take people to a new place."Posted on 27 Apr 2011 10:00 to category : Music News
