KASABIAN aren’t the type of band to make promises they can’t keep. So when this Leicester crew sing “Hit me, harder! I’m getting rewired. I flick the switch that make you feel electric, even faster than before…” you know they’re gonna do exactly that.
This year, as well as headlining Big Day Out, KASABIAN will also be playing two side shows in Sydney and Melbourne to keep you feeling electric!
In front of an audience, the songs of KASABIAN inspire a singalong “somewhere between a war cry and a mating call,” reckons UK broadcaster STV. Lead singer Tom Meighan has warned that once fans wrap their head around Velociraptor! and join in on its huge choruses, things are going to go to “another level.” Guitarist Sergio Pizzorno takes it even further: “It’s like, wow… any other band, anyone else in the world, has got to move out the way.” Modest couple of guys, huh?
Joining KASABIAN on these side shows as very special guests are fellow-country men THE VACCINES. Not yet two years old, this four-piece has raced from fervent whisper on the London indie scene to full blown hype courtesy of their first singles, ‘If You Wanna’ and ‘Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra),’ while their first live shows earned them tags like “indecently exciting” and “game changers.” With their March 2011 debut album, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?, packing DNA from ’60s pop to the dirty fuzz of The Jesus & Mary Chain and a live show The AU Review called “no-bullshit-just-rock.”
These are the ONLY AUSTRALIAN KASABIAN & THE VACCINES side shows outside of the Big Day Out 2012 dates.
