Kaiser Chiefs New Album Details

We’ve got 10 facts of our own about ‘Off With Their Heads’

Kaiser Chiefs have announced details of their new album, set to be released on October 13th.

The band’s third album will be titled ‘Off With Their Heads’, and will be preceded by a single ‘Never Miss A Beat’ on October 6th; a track which features both Lily Allen and New Young Pony Club on backing vocals and that has been played live repeatedly over the last few months (YouTube).

Other guest spots come from Sway on ‘Half The Truth’, while Lily Allen appears again alongside strings from David Arnold on ‘Always Happens Like That’. The album is co-produced by Mark Ronson and Eliot James.

In a mailout from their official website, the band commented; “The album was produced by Mark Ronson & Eliot James at RAK & Eastcote Studios in London, and mixed by Andy Wallace (He did Nevermind and LCD Soundsystem), with a few tracks mixed by Cenzo Townshend. We started recording in February this year. We’d heard that Mark Ronson was keen to produce us and we had three new songs that we wanted to record. We also wanted to try working with someone who was relatively new in the producer world and Eliot James kept getting recommended to us. Due to the fact that time was not in abundance for anyone, we decided to all work together and see what happened. Those initial two weeks in February were so productive and enjoyable that we quickly had more songs and carried on, breaking off to write and rehearse back in Leeds and to see the world playing festivals. We never intended to make an album at first, in fact we were going to have a year off… “

The tracklisting reads:

‘Spanish Metal’
‘Never Miss A Beat’
‘Like It Too Much’
‘You Want History’
‘Can’t Say What I Mean’
‘Good Days Bad Days’
‘Tomato In The Rain’
‘Half The Truth’
‘Always Happens Like That’
‘Addicted to Drugs’
‘Remember You’re A Girl’

The band are set to tour before the end of the year. If you want to know more about the new album, Ricky an Nick gave DIY TV a rundown of 10 things you should know about ‘Off With Their Heads’. Predictably, not all of them are true. You can watch the video here.

Eds note: We wanted to use the new image the label sent round, but unfortuately we can’t do it without cropping out Peanut, which isn’t on. As a compromise, we’ve used our photoshop skills to update Nick and Simon’s faces. We hope this is ‘OK’
