Last.fm Trends: Kaiser Chiefs Return With New Album And U.S. Tour
Brit band Kaiser Chiefs are to return from their four year break with new album Start The Revolution Without Me.
The album will see the light of day on March 6th – a date which also marks the start of a U.S. tour for the band.
Kaiser Chiefs are known for their sing-along anthems and will surely be making an impression at festivals across the globe in support of the new album. Last.fm Trends takes a retrospective look at their scrobbles so far.
Having formed in 1996 in Leeds, it wasn’t until 2005 that their debut album Employment surfaced. The album was a bonafide success and currently counts 11,799,316 scrobbles.
Tracks such as “I Predict A Riot” (2,710,354 scrobbles) and “Oh My God” (1,774,588 scrobbles) took live audiences by storm and continue to be blasted from Last.fm user’s stereos – the tracks were listened to by 4,190 and 2,673 listeners last week (respectively).
Start The Revolution Without Me was originally released in the UK in June 2011 (as seen with the jump in scrobbles in the below graph) under the title The Future Is Medieval and has been scrobbled 664,164 times. The band released a number of tracks, and asked fans to compile their own tracklisting for the record.
The order of the tracks on the U.S. version has been selected by the band’s label Cooperative, with the band confident that any order will be good enough for their awaiting fans.
