Live4ever Exclusive: ‘The United States Of Kasabian’

Posted on 06 Oct 2014 at 7:28am

 

The biggest week of the biggest year in the decade since Kasabian released their eponymous full-length debut happened this past June, a week bookended by a massive hometown gig at Leicester’s Victoria Park and a triumphant headlining slot at Glastonbury.

They’ve since reduced their scope, playing a few weeks of shows in the United States ahead of the US release of their latest album 48:13′.

Victoria Park saw the band – singer Tom Meighan, guitarist Serge Pizzorno, bass guitarist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews – perform to 50,000 people; Glastonbury, including its live feed, was even larger. But as is often the case, a tidal wave which crushes the British Isles is often reduced to a ripple along the shores of America.

Oasis, who Kasabian have often lazily been compared to, were playing Madison Square Garden by the time they imploded in 2009. Arctic Monkeys have seen their stock rise over the past several years, playing large arenas in primarily support slots but looking like they belong there. Yet Kasabian, with their natural bluster and genre-mixing canon, should be even bigger. Instead, they’re selling out Boston’s Paradise Rock Club (capacity: 933) and New York City’s Terminal 5 (capacity: 3,000), and absolutely killing it.

It’s been tough for Kasabian in America, an often deflating experience that’s had little to do with an inability to connect with the audience; the problem, as Meighan and Pizzorno see it, has been with the people in the States who they feel should have been working harder to get the word out.
