Primed with three albums recorded in rapid succession during the latter half of the past decade . the Kaiser Chiefs took a calculated gamble and decided to regroup out of the spotlight with a self imposed hiatus.

Last seen when they played their biggest shows to date at London’s Wembley Arena back in 2009 the band have been anything but idle in the intervening period which has seen Nick Hodgson and Simon Rix form Chewing Gum Records – home of The Neat, with Hodgson also embarking on numerous production opportunities with new acts including The Vaccines alongside song writing contributions for the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey, Mark Ronson and Duran Duran.

The recipients of various awards over the past six years, amongst others; three Brits, Ivor Novello’s and other assorted accolades, the band have also generated in excess of six million album sales – including the debut chart topping soundtrack of 2005 ‘Employment’ – whilst cementing a worldwide reputation as a phenomenal live act accompanying the likes of Green Day , Foo Fighters and U2 on worldwide tours , two sold out shows at London’s Earls Court Arena at the close of 2007 followed by an historic hometown show at Leeds United’s Elland Road football ground in the Spring of 2008 and subsequently dates and festival appearances across the globe.
