Kaiser Chiefs Are Burning In Flames

Kaiser Chiefs have dropped their brand new single Burning In Flames – taken from their forthcoming new studio album, the aptly titled Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album, out on 1st March. Upbeat, and dripping in retro-disco sound, Burning In Flames sees frontman Ricky Wilson in a reflective mood, looking back on the hugely successful career to date, as well as their staying power. He explains: “Being in a band for over 20 years isn’t as easy as we make it look. Sometimes any one of us could feel like we don’t want to do it anymore. There aren’t many of us bands left from the early 2000’s and that’s probably at times because it doesn’t seem worth it. But if your favourite toy is broken you don’t throw it away, you fix it. The real success is being able to make an Easy Eighth Album.”

Produced by Amir Amor (Rudimental), Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album sees the band return with a fresh and bold new sound. From the Nile Rodgers co-write of new single Feeling Alright, to the frantic Beautiful Girl, horn-laden Kaiser Chiefs throwback Job Centre Shuffle and joyous punch in the gut that is Jealousy, these ten tracks are a true statement of intent from a band that continues to deliver the goods again and again.

Listen to Burning In Flames below:

The album announcement arrives off the back of roaring success with previous releases Jealousy & How 2 Dance, as well as a big UK arena headline tour at the end of last year.

Where 2019’s Duck straddled the tide between Northern-Soul euphoria and early ‘00s antithesis, 2024 will see Kaiser Chiefs stepping into a renewed spotlight; a hook-heightened universe in which Ricky Wilson, Andrew “Whitey” White (guitar), Simon Rix (bass), keyboardist Peanut and Vijay Mistry on drums, come together to once again create what they craft best; breakthrough belters for the world’s dancefloor.

Off the back of a UK arena tour, Kaiser Chiefs are changing things up and will return next year with a run of headline shows in April, including outdoor dates, as well as two special London shows at Troxy & Flippers Roller Boogie Palace (20th & 21st April). They are not to be missed!

The band will play the following shows:


11th – Torquay, International Riviera Centre
12th – Eastbourne, Winter Gardens
16th – Stockton, Globe
17th – Wolverhampton, Civic
19th – Blackpool, Empress Ballroom
20th – London, Troxy
21st – London, Flippers Roller Boogie Palace

Few musicians and artists that I’ve followed over the years have evolved as much as Frank Carter has since I first saw him fronting Gallows when they opened for the MC5/DTK at the Underworld in Camden back in December 2006, back when I described Frank as a Wee Ginger Gobshite who offered out the audience for a fight, Now nearly 18 years later Frank is playing two nights At The Roundhouse to celebrate the release of dark Rainbow his fifth album with The Rattlesnakes.
