Kaiser Chiefs To Release Album In Octoberby Contributor | | 05 August 2008
Kaiser Chiefs have revealed they will release their new album Off With Their Heads on October 13th.
The follow-up to last year's hugely successful YOURS TRULY, ANGRY MOB will feature contributions from Lily Allen, NEW YORK PONY CLUB and composer DAVID ARNOLD.
Drummer Nick Hodgson said the album, which has been produced by Mark Ronson and Eliot James, is more dancefloor-based than its predecessor.
"I just imagine them in the Leeds Cockpit [where the band started legendary indie club Pigs]. I think we lost that a bit on the last album, but I can imagine these songs being played there," he told NME.
He also praised Ronson for his unusual "Phil Spector-style" production techniques.
"Sometimes he'd make us all wear sunglasses in the studio! I know it sounds stupid, but we did 'Good Days Bad Days' and wearing sunglasses on it gave it a really different vibe," he said.
Singer Ricky Wilson added "we've got our weirdness back".
