VIDEO: Kasabian – Re-Wired

UK rockers Kasabian recently issued a video for “Re-Wired,” from their latest release, “Velociraptor!”

Fans of car chase scenes should love the footage: the band shot the video with director Thomas Carty at Chobham Test Track, Surrey, burning rubber in a top-of-the range Mercedes, a bad boy Ford Escort and an old Fiat 126.

Kasabian launch a European tour on November 14 in Berlin.

In anew interview with CraveOnline, lead singer Tom Meighan was asked about the band’s lack of profile in the U.S.

“The theory is we haven’t toured America for 4 years, and our record label wouldn’t back us and we’ve parted company with them,” he says. “We’re going to go to a new record label, we’re fresh, we’ve got new ideas, and we’ve got a new team backing us now. Basically we had no backing, that’s why we haven’t been to America for a long time (since 2006). As for lack of appreciation, I think we just concentrated on other places in the world and we’ve been really busy, but our favorite place to tour is America. It makes you feel that rock and roll is not dead, and is alive, and we’re coming next March, which is going to be fabulous. I can’t wait.”
