Kasabian Announce North American Release Date for ’48:13′ + New Tour
On the heels of their massive European success, British rockers Kasabian have announced a North American release date for their fifth studio album, ’48:13.’ The record was first released in Germany on June 6 followed by the U.K. on June 9. Fans in North America will be able to pick up ’48:13′ on Oct. 7 via Harvest Records. Leading up to the release, the band is preparing for a short run of clubs stateside starting Sept. 26 at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club (full dates below).
Alongside Arcade Fire and Metallica, Kasabian headlined this year’s Glastonbury Festival in England. Closing out the three-day event, Kasabian performed on the Pyramid Stage in front of more than 100,000 screaming fans. During their North American trek, they’ll play much more intimate gigs at venues with capacities of 5,000 or less.
The first single released to U.S. radio will be ‘eez-eh,’ a track that showcases Kasabian’s wide-range of talents. The music video for the dance-rock track was directed by Aitor Throup who has worked with the band in the past on everything from live set design to album artwork.
