Kasabian- Vlad The Impaler

. Tuesday, March 31

I've always had a soft spot for Kasabian. They are lumped in with truly awful bands like The Enemy etc and have been adopted by the stereotypical lad rock crowd but they have always seemed to me to be a band with a curious sense of the absurd and ridiculous. For example this new track they are releasing as a free download is called 'Vlad The Impaler' and is the first song from their third album 'West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum'. Not exactly 'We'll Live and Die In These Towns' I think you'll agree.

The track itself is pretty interesting. I can hear about 4 stolen melodies that will come to me eventually but Kasabian strut about with such assurance you kinda forgive them any unoriginality. The video is a similarly bizarre affair, directed by Richard Ayoade and starring long time Kasabian co-hort Noel Fielding. Watch the video and download the track below.

The first album was quite good but I really disliked Empire.

This sounds a lot better
