Tom Meighan of Kasabian has revealed that the band are considering extreme measures when it comes to recording their next album, and that Serge Pizzorno has anywhere between eight and 30 new tracks ready to record.


In an interview with Gigwise, the rock frontman spoke of the band's constant urge to reinvent themselves, and toyed with the idea of recording an album without the aid of guitars.

"The next album might just be nine songs with no guitars and electronic drums. Imagine that. We'll be experimenting, that's for sure," said Tom in the interview. "The last record we made, we had a load of pop songs on there, we'd never really touched on that before."

Speaking about material for the follow up to the band's 2010 album 'Velociraptor!', he revealed bandmate Serge Pizzorno has already given him 'glimpses' of future Kasabian hits.

"I've heard a few glimpses of tracks, but nothing full. I reckon he's got 8-10 tracks written. It's a bit early for him to show me though," he added. "He might have 30, that's just how it is."

Tom recently spoke of his frustration at the US success of X Factor boyband One Direction, calling the manufactured group, 'five little d*cks'.
