Chart-topping Leeds indie rockers
Founded by secondary school friends and fervent Leeds United supporters, West Yorkshire quintet Kaizer Chiefs took their name from the South African football club of the same name, formerly home to Leeds hero Lucas Radebe.
Inspired by new wave, pop-rock and punk, the five-piece broke onto the music scene in 2005 with their debut Employment, produced by Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur). Not only did the studio album spawn the ubiquitous hit I Predict A Riot, it also helped Kaiser Chiefs score three BRIT Awards and get shortlisted for a Mercury Prize.
Their 2007 follow-up Yours Truly, Angry Mob reached No.1 on the UK albums chart, its lead track Ruby becoming the band’s first No.1 single.
Of Kaiser Chiefs’ next four albums, 2008’s Off With Their Heads, 2011’s The Future Is Medieval and 2016’s Stay Together broke into the top 10, while 2014’s Education, Education, Education & War went all the way to the No.1 spot. The hits also continued to flow, including Oh My God, Everyday I Love You Less And Less, Modern Way, Everything Is Average Nowadays, The Angry Mob and Coming Home.
Alongside tours supporting their albums and countless festival appearances, the band appeared at the London 2012 closing ceremony, playing Pinball Wizard by The Who. Vocalist Ricky Wilson also became a familiar fac, appearing as a coach on the BBC series The Voice from 2014 to 2016.
In 2019, Kaiser Chiefs released their seventh LP Duck, produced by Ben H Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective). The band promoted the album with a special concert at Elland Road commemorating 100 years of Leeds United FC.
Following a huge arena tour in early 2020, Kaisers Chiefs confirmed a series of Live After Racing outdoor performances for 2021, as well as appearances at Manchester’s Sounds Of The City and Sunderland’s Lamplight Festival.
On 28 November 2020, Kaiser Chiefs played a livestream concert from London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
In early March 2021, the band announced they'd rescheduled their Scarborough Open Air Theatre to 8 August 2021.
