Montreux discovered this foursome from Leicester in 2005. They were then presenting their self-titled debut album, a blend of dancing Brit pop and savage alternative rock which saw their careers skyrocket thanks to the hits “Club Foot” and “L.S.F.”. Long considered the successors to Oasis, these English artists gradually distanced themselves from that group’s style as they explored different genres. From garage to hip-hop, with detours through psychedelic music and electro. Over five records, Kasabian has developed a rock-star aura and earned headline status at the biggest festivals in the world and a place as one of the UK’s greatest rock bands. Three years after 48:13, this formation is back in style with a sixth opus, For Crying Out Loud, conceived, in the words of guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, “to save rock and roll”. The tone is set for the rockers’ first performance on the stage at the Stravinski!
