Reading and Leeds headliners Kasabian have revealed plans for a 'really dark and leftfield' follow up to their 2011 album, 'Velociraptor!'.
Frontman Tom Meighan revealed plans for the band's next album, which songwriter Serge Pizzorno is already hard at work on.
"Serge is always writing music, whether he's on the road, at home, or in his hotel room," Meighan revealed to NME at last weekend's T In The Park festival. "I imagine he's got a load of songs that I've not heard yet. He's played me some. I can't confirm how many he's got.
"We'll probably record when we have a break and get back in the studio late next year."
Meighan said similar things in an interview with Gigwise earlier this year, when he also described One Direction as 'little d*cks'.
Meighan also added that the 'pop' sounds heard on 'Velociraptor!' would be absent from the band's next record.
"We've never really made a pop album before, not one with bridges and choruses and three-minute songs," he added. "With our other albums, we'd do interludes, psychedelic breakdowns, 12 minute endings and with 'Velociraptor!', we wanted to do a pop album. With our next one, we're going to go leftfield, really dark and leftfield."
