Formed in Leeds in 2000, Kaiser Chiefs are one of the leading bands of their generation. Fronted by the charismatic Ricky Wilson with Simon Rix on bass, Andrew Whitey White on guitar, Nick Peanut Baines on keyboards and drummer Vijay Mistry, the band have had a string of anthemic hits such as Oh My God, I Predict A Riot, Everyday I Love You Less and Less and Never Miss A Beat.
With seven original studio albums, platinum record sales, a volley of top ten singles and three Brit Awards, Kaiser Chiefs continue to be one of Britain's most treasured bands.
About Kaiser Chiefs
Inspired by new wave, pop-rock and punk, the five-piece broke onto the music scene in 2005 with their debut Employment, produced by Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur). Not only did the studio album spawn the ubiquitous hit I Predict A Riot, it also helped Kaiser Chiefs score three BRIT Awards and get shortlisted for a Mercury Prize.
Their 2007 follow-up Yours Truly, Angry Mob reached No.1 on the UK albums chart, its lead track Ruby becoming the band’s first No.1 single.
Of Kaiser Chiefs’ next four albums, 2008’s Off With Their Heads, 2011’s The Future Is Medieval and 2016’s Stay Together broke into the top 10, while 2014’s Education, Education, Education & War went all the way to the No.1 spot. The hits also continued to flow, including Oh My God, Everyday I Love You Less And Less, Modern Way, Everything Is Average Nowadays, The Angry Mob and Coming Home.
Alongside tours supporting their albums and countless festival appearances, the band appeared at the London 2012 closing ceremony, playing Pinball Wizard by The Who. Vocalist Ricky Wilson also became a familiar face, appearing as a coach on the BBC series The Voice from 2014 to 2016.
In 2019, Kaiser Chiefs released their seventh LP Duck, produced by Ben H Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective). The band promoted the album with a special concert at Elland Road commemorating 100 years of Leeds United FC.
Following a huge arena tour in early 2020, Kaisers Chiefs confirmed a series of Live After Racing outdoor performances for 2021, as well as appearances at Manchester’s Sounds Of The City and Sunderland’s Lamplight Festival.
