Kasabian promise edgy new album

Singer Tom Meighan has compared Kasabian's forthcoming fifth record to the follow-up to 2011's Velociraptor!

Speaking to NME magazine, Tom said: ''The process starts simple. Serge [Pizzorno, guitarist and songwriter] gets a demo and then we build on it, and then he mutates it with rocket fuel and liquid nitrogen and it's crisp and its crack and its smack. It's a dangerous, dangerous, dangerous, dangerous drug we've created.

''I can't get my head round it. It's rock 'n' roll, it's got the rawness and its edgy, but we've gone back to electronic and we've gone beyond leftfield. What else can we do? ... This is hardcore. We want to put it out there and let people stew in it. Let them worry about it. Then tour the ************ hell out of it.''

The Shoot The Runner hitmakers are hoping the album - whose name is being kept secret until its release - will prove their critics wrong and outdo their rival bands.

Tom further added: ''This is the most excited I've ever been. The album is a real '**** you' to anyone who ever dared criticise or snarl at us, and say we can't do music like this.  There are a lot of bands who try to do this kind of music but fail because they've got no songs.''
