Kasabian builds on the foundations laid by such names as Primal Scream and The Stone Roses in the 1990s: rock with beats, party music for the lads. By their second album ‘Empire’ (2006) they could do no wrong: it sold 600,000 units. The monthly magazine Q called the quartet the Best Act In The World Today. In 2014, Kasabian headlined the main stage at Glastonbury: pretty much the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a British band. From then on, the band became ‘the unstoppable Kasabian’. However, the machine ground to a halt in 2020 when frontman Tom Meighan had to quit. Guitarist Serge Pizzorno took on the role with aplomb. ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’ (2022) is the first album to feature his voice.
