Two years ago flamboyant frontman Tom Meighan left KASABIAN following personal problems. The announcement came via this statement from the band: “Tom Meighan is stepping down from Kasabian by mutual consent. Tom has struggled with personal issues that have affected his behavior for quite some time, and now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track.”

But the Leicester group is back. New album The Alchemist’s Euphoria will see the day
of light on 5th August. The band’s songwriter Serge Pizzorno, who occasionally sang Kasabian songs in the past, is the new vocalist.

To celebrate their return, they already played some big festival
slots with more to come as well as an extensive indoor tour.

They’re on FIRE again as shown at this year’s
edition of the legendary Isle Of Wight.
