Kasabian is gearing up for the release of their eighth studio album, 'Happenings', just in time for their return to Leicester's Victoria Park for a huge homecoming show. With excitement building, fans are speculating about the possibility of an upcoming arena tour following the album's launch. Read on for the latest updates.

Words by Tom Wells

Since their debut album in 2004, Kasabian have solidified themselves as one of this generation’s premier live bands. Six consecutive number 1 albums later, and a major change in lineup since, the Leicester band are showing no signs of slowing down.

Having ticked off nearly every bucket list item for a band - From a Glastonbury headline slot, to being the soundtrack of their hometown team winning the Premier League, Kasabian have proven why the British media often dubbed them as the natural successors to Oasis in the UK rock and indie scene.

Continuing their recovery from a difficult couple of years, which saw songwriter and guitarist, Sergio Pizzorno, take up frontman duties, Kasabian will return in 2024 with their eighth studio album, ‘Happenings’.

Are Kasabian touring in 2024?

As is tradition with every Kasabian album release, fans can expect the band to embark on a tour, delivering their electrifying live performances to audiences across the UK.

Already, the band have announced shows across Europe, in addition to headlining at Latitude Festival and hosting a monumental homecoming show in Leicester with a capacity of 50,000 attendees. It's safe to say that Kasabian will be taking their latest album, 'Happenings', on the road throughout the UK in 2024.

Are Kasabian releasing new music?

Kasabian have released seven studio albums, with the most recent, ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’, being their sixth consecutive UK number 1 album.

On 15th June 2023, the ‘Shoot The Runner’ rockers released their first new material since the aforementioned album, with their single, ‘Algorithms’. Speaking about the track, frontman and songwriter, Sergio Pizzorno, said; “It’s about the human connection [...] getting together with your pals, coming to see a show. It’s what we have over the robots.”

Since the announcement of their new album, ‘Happenings’ being announced on 4th December 2023, it has not been made clear whether ‘Algorithms’ will be a part of the new album, or will remain as a standalone single.

With a new lease of life, Pizzorno noted in an interview with Radio X that the album was made during touring, and teased that it had “fed into this joyous, huge, big tune album and from it we’re gonna do our own happenings.”

When discussing the album’s title, in the same interview, Pizzorno revealed that it was inspired by “The late 60s, like Hawkwind, you’d have psychedelic happenings.”

Kasabian have just announced on their Instagram page that they will be dropping the first song from their new album, 'Happenings' on Wednesday 21st February.

The full tracklist for ‘Happenings’ is:

1. Darkest Lullaby
2. Call
3. How Far Will You Go
4. Coming Back To Me Good
5. G.O.A.T.
6. Passengers
7. The Hell Of It
8. Italian Horror
9. Bird In A Cage
10. Algorithms

When did Kasabian last tour?

Kasabian’s last live show of ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’ tour came as part of the North American leg at The Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The final UK show of the tour took place at Southsea’s Victorious Festival.

Throughout 2022 and 2023, Kasabian performed a total of 53 shows in support of The Alchemist’s Euphoria across multiple countries from The UK, to Ireland, Europe, Japan and North America.

The main  ‘Alchemist’s Euphoria’ arena tour had sell-outs in every city, including London’s Alexandra Palace and Glasgow’s OVO Hydro.
