Kaiser Chiefs


Kaiser Chiefs Bio

Five individuals, five Kaiser Chiefs.

With four albums already to their name including countless of celebrated singles, Kaiser Chiefs have reached the top of the ladder having entered the industry just a few years ago. Their first entry on the stage was in 2004 when they released I Predict A Riot (including the track Take My Temperature) on Polydor Records, and swiftly moved along with Polydor to release their debut album in 2005 called Employment.

The boys did not take a long break enjoying the success of their debut before they launched the astounding, highly appreciated album Yours Truly, Angry Mob in 2007 on B-Unique Records. The album featured tracks such as The Angry Mob, Love’s Not A Competition, My Kind Of Guy and Boxing Champ.

Autumn 2008 saw the release of the band’s third collection of tracks, known as the album Off With Their Heads – a title coined from the same humour that graced their previous outings in long-player land. Rehearsing and writing new songs alongside already penned newies such as Never Miss A Beat and You Want History which had been debuted on the Winter Arena tour, it became apparent that the rich seam of songs the band had unearthed back in Leeds were almost surplus in so far as to warrant something more than just an EP. It was at this juncture, with a view to working with a new producer, the band had heard that Mark Ronson was keen to work with them and thus the band went to record three songs with him.

The Chiefs had also decided that they wanted to work with a relative newcomer in the production world and on various recommendations reined in Eliot James. Due to the fact that they were working within a particular time constraint, Mark and Eliot decamped to the studio and those initial couple of weeks were so productive and enjoyable that the rest is now history.

Off With Their Heads, produced by Mark Ronson and Eliot James at Rak and Eastcote studios in London and mixed in New York by Andy Wallace, received extensive attention and worldwide approval. Off With Their Heads is arguably by far the band’s finest album to date; it’s not a collection of singles, albeit there are plenty of them, but an album that presents itself as a coherent sanguine selection of songs that typifies the band’s writing and musical prowess.

Since their inception, Kaiser Chiefs have never been shy to big up Leeds United and as season ticket holders they are regular attendees; they have always said they wanted to play at Elland Road and after a year of cutting through red tape the band realised their dream when they headlined in front of 35,000 fans in May 2008. Kaiser Chiefs have headlined at V Festival, Isle Of Wight and T- in-the -Park hand in hand with several European jaunts too, reaching their audience further and further.

Last but not least, we saw 2011 bring on yet another spectacular production from Kaiser Chiefs when they released their fourth album The Future Is Medieval on B-Unique Records. The album contains tracks such as Little Shocks, Stars With Nothing, Out Of Focus, When All Is Quiet and Man On Mars.

Stay tuned.
