Music Madness: Kaiser Chiefs

The future is medieval.

Check ’em Out: Five Brits hailing from Leeds, UK’s ever vibrating music scene have shaped over a decade into the award winning ensemble that is the Kaiser Chiefs. Best known for their witty ball busting lyrics, and performances at London’s famed Wembley Arena back in 2009, this savvy clad has sold over 6 million in album sales, produced 3 albums to date and performed with the likes of Green Day, Foo Fighters and U2.

They put the brakes on recording for the past couple of years, but continued to write and tour Europe. While singer Ricky Wilson, guitarist Andrew White, Simon Rix, Nick Baines & Nick Hodgson put their heads together to plan a return to the stage, they realized they didn’t want to deal with the promos that come with an album release, and thus the concept for The Future is Medieval was born. Kaiser Chiefs released their music to the public one by one, streaming it as it was produced and creating a buzz around a new and loyal fan base.
