We were so excited last week to welcome the Kaiser Chiefs to Falmouth! The band played two intimate gigs to a small but lively audience at the Princess Pavilions in Falmouth, their first live performances for two years.
Many of the Seasalt team were able to get tickets and we were not disappointed! It was a fabulous show with a mix of their fab new material as well as the classic oldies such as ‘Ruby’ and ‘I predict a Riot’!
Lead singer, Ricky Wilson, is a friend of Seasalt and as a present we gave him some of Seasalt’s lovely bamboo Sailor Socks as a memento of his visit. According to his girlfriend, Lesley, they are now his favourite stage socks and you can see him wearing them loud and proud in this photo from a recent radio interview!
The Kaiser Chiefs have just released their 4th album, The Future Is Medieval and they are also pioneering a more initiative and interactive way for fans to purchase albums.
From the Kaiser Chiefs’ website, fans are able to create their own album by selecting 10 tracks from a selection of 20, along with choosing their preferred album cover from a selection of artwork, to create a customised album. But if you’re stuck for inspiration, fans are also able to choose from a selection of albums previously created by others and the original creator receives £1 for each of their copies sold/downloaded! This genius system allows fans to potentially earn money if they promote their personal Kaiser Chiefs album creation to their friends!
The band will also be playing gigs and festivals across Europe this summer as well as, no doubt, making a storming return at the Glastonbury festival.
