About Kasabian

Originally known as Saracuse, UK indie outfit Kasabian signed with a major label in 2002 and debuted with their current name, inspired by Linda Kasabian of the Charles Manson cult.

∙ The band’s first two albums, Kasabian and Empire, were coproduced by Jim Abbiss, who went on to work with Adele, Arctic Monkeys, and Bombay Bicycle Club.
Empire topped the UK charts in 2006 and kicked off the band’s run of five straight No. 1 albums.
∙ 2009’s “Fire,” their highest-charting single, debuted at No. 3 and became the theme song of the English Premier League in 2010.
∙ They have been nominated for dozens of BRIT, NME, and Q Awards (winning more than a few), and their 2009 LP, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.
∙ Many of the UK’s top festivals have tapped Kasabian as headliners, including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and T in the Park.
∙ To celebrate the unlikely 2016 Premier League championship of their hometown Leicester City F.C., Kasabian performed two stadium concerts and a surprise gig at the team’s victory parade.
