Anyone who dares to criticize them...
In an interview with NME, Kasabian revealed that their new album is a "real f**k you" to critics of the band.
Singer Tom Meighan said: "The album is a real 'fuck you' to anyone who ever dares criticise or snarl at us, and say we can't do music like this. It's a real fucking 'up yours'. There are a lot of bands who try and do this kind of music but fail because they've got no songs."
He also talked about the process of making a Kasabian song. He added: ""The process starts simple. Serge 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 it's crack and it's smack. It's a dangerous, dangerous, dangerous, dangerous drug we've created. I can't get my head around it. It's rock 'n' roll, it's got the rawness and it's edgy, but it's gone back to electronics and we've gone beyond left field."
Finally, he said that the band will tour to promote the new album later this year. He said: "This is beyond anything we've ever done. We've gone hard, but this is beyond hard. This is hardcore. We want to put it out there and let people stew on it. Let them worry about it. Then tour the motherfucking hell out of it."
