Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Alternative, Rock,

KasbianKasabian want to keep reinventing themselves "like Radiohead."

The "Days Are Forgotten" group look up to their peers and they way they have evolved their sound on every album and use it as a guide for their own career.

"We always try to reinvent ourselves in the way that a band like Radiohead would do. Or we come at things from another angle," said singer Tom Meighan.

Tom added that the band - completed by Sergio Pizzorno, Chris Edwards, Ian Matthews and Jay Mehler - wanted to try more simple songwriting on their latest album Velociraptor!, after the psychedelic edge of their third album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum.

"West Ryder was our concept record. We were gonna make our crazy, psychedelia record, which it was, with all these crazy songs in it and then Velociraptor! was back to normal, 'back-to-basic' songwriting. Good songwriting, good pop songs," he said.
