THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Kasabian make a most welcome return this summer with a high-octane new album fuelled by their trademark swagger.

Of the new album, the band’s seventh, singer-guitarist Serge Pizzorno says: “One thing about this record I feel over the other ones, is it definitely feels like a body of work that belongs together. It was a beautiful moment in mastering hearing it as a piece. I think it really holds up in our seven albums … The Magnificent Seven. It’s definitely music to make you feel like anything’s possible. And it feels really exciting because, like always, this band can go absolutely anywhere.”

Look no further than first single and standout track Scriptvre, which was written by Pizzorno, produced with Fraser T Smith and mixed by Spike Stent and written by Serge. “Scriptrve is about rewriting the story you tell yourself. Editing your own script,” Pizzorno explains.

In addition to Pizzorno, Kasabian include bassist Chris Edwards, drummer Ian Matthews and guitarist Tim Carter. The Alchemist’s Euphoria is their first album since the 2020 departure of original singer Tom Meighan, who left the band for personal reasons.”
