Kaiser Chiefs to Chug Through North America


British rock band Kaiser Chiefs have announced a 20-date North American tour that’ll launch in late April and run through the better part of May.

After having years of success in Britain, including multiple Brit Awards and platinum record sales, Kaiser Chiefs faced adversity when their drummer Nick Hodgson quit the band in 2012. This initially caused frustration amongst the guys, but within a week there were 19-20 potential song ideas – they had found their “spark,” thus resulting in the band’s latest album, Education, Education, Education and War.

Just when things seemed to be better than ever, Kaiser Chiefs recently joined Foo Fighters on their South-American tour.

The band’s latest single, “Falling Awake,” should have fans anxiously waiting their arrival. You can listen to it below, before checking out the tour dates:
