Kasabian Live in Singapore

16 Jan


LAMC Productions is proud to announce, the gargantuan best band in Britain KASABIAN take their even bigger ‘Velociraptor!’ tour to Singapore on February 8, 2012 at Fort Canning Park!

One of the year’s most eagerly awaited releases, ‘Velociraptor!’, includes stompers ‘Switchblade Smiles’ and ‘Days Are Forgotten’. The band have been racking up those YouTube hits for the ‘Switchblade Smiles’ video and ‘Days Are Forgotten’ has already been chosen as the soundbed for the new Sky Sports football season TV ad.

The ‘last one’ was, of course, ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’. A psychedelic masterpiece which has sold almost a million copies worldwide (and a cool 730,000 in the UK), the band’s third album (and second UK number one) confirmed Kasabian’s place at British rock’s highest table.

As well as providing the new decade with its first de facto festival anthem with top three single ‘Fire’, it also brought some impressive mantelpiece clutter. Voted Best Album by Q and nominated for the Mercury Prize, the band also won Best British Group at The Brits, Best Album at the NME Awards and a host of other nominations. “The fact that we got kind of big off that record is amazing,” says Serge. “West Ryder was our Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake. Everything about it was perfect. But we’ve done that now and it’s time to move on. We’ve upped the stakes.”

KASABIAN are guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, singer Tom Meighan, bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews.

The Vaccines, which has drawn comparisons to everyone from Surfer Blood and the Drums to the Strokes and the Jesus and Mary Chain, released their debut album, “What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?” on the back of a huge UK buzz.

“What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?”, is 37 minutes of “Lo-fi, heart-grabbing rock ‘n’ roll” exclaims Q Magazine. NME raves that the record is a mix of “pop-punk, chillwave and classic good-time pop’n’roll.” The Fly explains that the bands “glimmering, lo-fi punk-pop laced with dreamy summertime hamonise,” will solidify that, “The Vaccines are the band to watch in 2011!”

The Vaccines were recently nominated ‘Best New Act’ at the 2011 Q Awards and ‘Critics’ Choice’ at the 2011 Brit Awards and are the best selling new band of 2011.

The Vaccines are the talents of Justin Young (vocals, guitar), Anri Hjorvar (bass), Freddie Cowan (guitar), and Pete Robertson (drums).
