VIDEO: Kasabian rock Letterman

UK rockers Kasabian did some pre-promotion on Monday night for their upcoming North American tour, which starts March 12 in Dallas.

The band performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, delivering the track “Days Are Forgotten” from their new “Velociraptor!” album

Stars in their native UK, Kasabian have yet to break through in the States but, as singer Tom Meighan told CraveOnline a few months ago, “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,” explained Tom. “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," Meighan continued, “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 [in] March, which is going to be fabulous. I can’t wait.”

Starting next week, Kasabian play a series of shows in Europe before they hit North America.
