The Kaiser Chiefs have insisted the release of their singles collection ‘Souvenir‘ does not mark the end of the band.
Released this week, ‘Souvenir’ contains the group’s first 14 singles, including the UK chart topper ‘Ruby‘, as well as two new tracks – ‘On The Run‘ and ‘Listen To Your Head‘.
And when speaking on BBC Breakfast this morning (June 6th), bass player Simon Rix insisted that despite the release of Greatest Hits collections often being seen as the precursor to a split, this will not be the case for the Leeds group.
“It’s a singles collection, it’s similar but different. It’s not a ‘Greatest Hits’, it’s not the end,” he said, while frontman Ricky Wilson added: “It’s always great to reminisce, nostalgia is fun. It’s really good looking back. We’ve had loads of big singles.”
Kaiser Chiefs will close the final night of this year’s Guernsey Festival of Performing Arts on June 23rd, following other scheduled artists including The Charlatans and King Charles.Just Published:
