Kaiser Chiefs are set to release new album 'Education, Education, Education & War' on March 31st.
Much maligned, Kaiser Chiefs' role in mainstream indie's over-reach during the Noughties shouldn't undermine their achievements.
After all, this is a band who are capable of introducing new material at venues such as Lollapaolloza Festival in South America and London’s Hyde Park...
Completing work on their new album, the results will be released early next year. Presumably a reference to Tony Blair's tenure as Prime Minister, 'Education, Education, Education & War' will be released through Fiction Records.
Recorded at The Maze Studio in Atlanta, the album was overseen by Ben H. Allen III before Michael Brauer took care of the final mixdown.
Out on March 31st, tracklisting is as follows:
1. The Factory Gates
2. Coming Home
3. Misery Company
4. Ruffians On Parade
5. Meanwhile Up In Heaven
6. One More Last Song
7. My Life
8. Bows & Arrows
Kaiser Chiefs will open the year with a pair of UK shows, before heading off around the globe:
11 Manchester Gorilla
13 London The Scala
The new issue of Clash magazine is out right now. It's always on the money with breakthrough acts worth listening to. So, go and see.
