The biggest hurdle most bands face in their careers is trying to better their debut album or at the very least match it. After all, you have a lifetime to write your first record but about six months to write the follow up – at least if you want to keep up the momentum.
There aren’t many that can say they’ve had to face the problem of topping their third album. Kasabian are one of those bands. ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’ did for Kasabian what ‘Screamadelica‘ did for Primal Scream in terms of musical fulfillment. Granted, they were already pretty damn successful, but that record catapulted them to the next level. It may not have had the same level of impact as ‘Screamadelica’, but it mirrored the change in Primal Scream’s career, whereby musically everything came together on their third release and they went massive; finding their sound and making an album they’d been gradually working towards since their conception. It was the complete Kasabian album.
Arctic Monkeys could start a mega-money scrap for their services once current contractual commitments to Domino Records have been completed.
The Sun newspaper claims the Sheffield band’s management are ready to listen to new offers from major labels following the completion of duties surrounding fourth studio album ‘Suck It and See‘, but have also apparently left the door open for a stay at their current home.
Kings Of Leon were forced to cancel a gig in Dallas last night (July 29th), after frontman Caleb Followill left the stage mid-set due to apparent problems with his voice.
Not long into the show, Followill expressed his discomfort to the crowd, saying: “I’m trying my best to sing but I haven’t got a voice, I’ve got nothing here.”
