Kaiser Chiefs have announced plans for a UK arena tour which is due to kick off early next year. The band have also shared their latest single ‘People Know How To Love One Another’, which you can check out below.
‘People Know How To Love One Another’ will also feature on the enduring Leeds indie band’s seventh studio album, Duck, which is due out on 26 July. The record will be their first since October 2016’s Stay Together.
Kaiser Chiefs will kick off their arena tour in Hull on January 21 next year, with a series of dates following before a concluding show at London’s The O2 on February 1. Support for the gigs will come from Razorlight, and tickets go on sale next Friday, 21 June at 9am. For more information, visit the band’s official website.
In a short note to fans, Kaiser Chiefs said of ‘People Know How To Love One Another’: “To us, it feels like one of the key songs on Duck and therefore a good teaser for the album.”
Speaking to NME last month about the new album, frontman Ricky Wilson said that it was sounding “undeniably Kaiser Chiefs”.
“I went and listened to the first few [Kaiser Chiefs albums] again,” Wilson said. “I listened to a lot of the stuff we were listening to when we made those albums, like some old Motown and stuff. The truth of the matter is that it’s just five of us in a room and we make the music that we make.”
“We never really try and crowbar in anything else, apart from the way that we’re thinking in those 12 months. Well, it’s usually 12 months but this one took 18. God, it was hard. It nearly killed us, but we’re on a major label now – which is good. It means I don’t have to get the tube everywhere.”
