British rockers Kasabian emerged at the height of the early-to-mid-2000s British indie hype wave alongside peers like The Libertines, The Music, The Coral and more. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2004, propelled them to chart success in the UK, while in the States they enjoyed formidable indie buzz.

The band's next couple of releases, 2006's Empire and 2009's West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, saw some major line-up shuffles and also found the band experimenting with their sound, even collaborating with famed underground hip-hop producer Dan the Automator (known for his work in Gorillaz, Deltron 3030 and more). Last year, the band released their fourth album, Velociraptor!, which was hailed by critics and fans as a major artistic step forward for the band.

Kasabian stopped by The Current to play a few songs and chat with Barb Abney.

Songs played: "Days Are Forgotten," "Man of Simple Pleasure" and "Goodbye Kiss."
