Kasabian 'Fire' Free Music Video

English band Kasabian are an indie/alternative rock band from Leicestershire, formed in the early 2000s. Since their creation almost ten years ago, they have been compared to many rock legends including Primal Scream, Oasis and the Stone Roses, as they have produced unique sounds with the gravitas, swagger and quality of these other top quality bands.

Kasabian's début album was first released in late 2004 after the band had spent months in a secluded farmhouse writing and producing the album. Despite the success of their first two singles, 'Processed Beats' and 'Reason is Treason', it was their third single release 'Club Foot' which became a massive hit and received rave reviews from both critics and radio listeners alike. The album achieved good sales and generally positive reviews and the band were asked to undertake a spot at Glastonbury, alongside huge names such as Tom Jones and Lady Gaga.

Their second album, 'Empire', catapulted the band to international stardom as the anthemic rock of the first album became more polished and the lyrics became more powerful and passionate, generally focusing on the horrors of war and global politics. Changes also happened in the line-up as original members left the band for various reasons. Despite this, the Kasabian sound was still there - just honed and matured but definitely still as raw and exciting as their début album from 2004. With this album they also sealed themselves as fantastic live performers, even winning the NME Best Live Act award in late 2007. They are known for their fantastic use of the stage and their crowd interaction and satisfaction.

Their third album, released in mid June 2009, was called 'West Ryder Paper Lunatic Asylum' and its complexity, innovativeness and stunning composition has been in the making since late 2007. For this album they have recruited electro and techno master 'Dan The Automator', who made a significant contribution to the Gorillaz first album as well as taking inspiration from Pink Floyd and Oasis. 'Underdog', released in Europe, is a thumping tune and very representative of the album as a whole. Another single from the album is 'Vlad the Impaler' which features The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding as a bloodthirsty vampire in the video. However, it is the band's second single release, 'Fire', which has really caught the fans' imaginations as it went straight in the UK charts at number 3; the highest entry Kasabian have ever had in the single charts. The song, like much of the third album and Kasabian's back catalogue, is very complex, as the music has many different layers and the lyrics have thought-provoking meanings. The video is also fantastic, as it uses sepia toned film and fantastic camera angles to show the emotion and feeling behind a bank robbery gone wrong.

Kasabian are incredibly innovative both in their music and video direction, constantly collaborating with different artists (such as Rihanna and Noel Gallagher) at live shows to try and keep their music fresh and interesting. As their progression and maturation through their albums has shown, third time is definitely the charm.
