LONDON, ENGLAND, February 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Renowned for their riotous live performances and catchy anthems, Kaiser Chiefs will appease an Angry Mob from the stage of one of London's most popular live venues as they bid to tie up their UK tour with a bang. Ricky Wilson's Leeds indie rockers - featuring new drummer Vijay Mistry - will perform tracks from the band's last album, 'The Future is Medieval', as well as a medley of Kaiser Chiefs greatest hits to a sell-out crowd at the O2 Academy Brixton on Friday 1st March 2013.
Best known for their award-winning debut album 'Employment' and the pulsating number one single 'Ruby' from the follow-up 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob', Kaiser Chiefs returned from a two-year break with an intriguing fourth studio album in mid-2011. 'The Future is Medieval' was initially only released on the band's website, with fans able to choose 10 from 20 tracks to create a personalised compilation. Although some critics drew the inevitable conclusions that the Kaiser were favouring quantity over quality, the record was seen as a return to form, with NME describing it as a "solid effort that deserves undistracted attention".
An official version of the album was later released by the band, featuring 12 of the original songs and one previously unavailable track. Having promoted the album - renamed 'Start The Revolution Without Me' for the US market - with a North American tour last year, Kaiser Chiefs have kicked off 2013 with a whirlwind 14-date UK tour, which concludes here at the O2 Brixton Academy.
Fans will have the chance to see new Kaisers drummer Mistry in action following the surprise departure of drummer and founding member Nick Hodgson in December. Mistry joins the group from the Yorkshire band Club Smith. While running through hits from their fist-pumping back catalogue - such as 'Ruby', 'I Predict a Riot', 'Oh My God', 'Every Day I Love You Less and Less' and 'Never Miss a Beat' - the Kaisers will no doubt showcase tracks from 'The Future is Medieval' while also - perhaps - trying out some new material from their forthcoming fifth studio album.
Following the official gig at the O2 Academy Brixton, Kaiser Chiefs will be joined by Grantham-based band The Protoneers for a special after-party at the Brixton Jamm, an intimate venue that has in recent years seen impromptu performances from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The View and Adele.
