Kasabian - Kasabian working on aggressive album

Kasabian's new album will be more ''aggressive''.

The 'Days are Forgotten' band - Sergio Pizzorno, Tom Meighan, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - are set to begin work on their fifth studio album this year and have promised a more rock sound to the record after feeling 2011's 'Velociraptor!' was too commercial.

Giving an idea of their new sound, Sergio explained: ''I'm obsessed with mantras. I love things that repeat and build. The drops in dance music always fascinate.

''I want to push the sound. I never want to give in and think about selling albums. If it comes out next year it'll be the 10th anniversary from the first one [2004's self-titled 'Kasabian']. Pushing that electronic sound that we've had from the start would be the perfect way to round it off.''

Singer Tom is already excited about some of the ideas he's heard from Sergio, which he compares to some of the band's earlier material.

He added to NME magazine: ''I've heard the demos and they're f**king raunchy and heavy. Riffy in the vein of 'Fast Fuse' and 'Underdog'. It's the most aggressive thing we've done. 'Velociraptor!' was like a pop album but this is much more extreme.''
