Kaiser Chiefs release their first single of the year – O My God - on February 21st. Originally recorded as a demo and given a very limited UK release last Spring as the band’s debut single, Oh My God has since become the base on which the Kaiser model has been built. The single notched up a couple of single of the week accolades and paved the way at radio... The follow up arrived in the shape of I Predict A Riot and indeed saw a RIOT at 22 in the chart, as well being play-listed on one of America’s premier stations KROQ at the tail end of November - one of only seven Bristish bands listed at the station last year fact fans!!!!
Meanwhile, the all new improved version of Oh My God with production mastery courtesy of Stephen Street, is a far beefier proposition and gives the track the business end it needed to push the band onwards and is undoubtedly a fantastic albeit brief aural visit
into what the band’s forthcoming album is likely to conjure up! Oh My God is released on B-Unique/Polydor and will be available on limited signed 7" and two CD’s b/w four new tracks across all formats including live favourite Hard Times Send Me.
