I wasn’t a massive fan but it’s a shame for Tom who I thought always seemed like a decent guy.

I hope there’s a lot of this in this thread and not too much “shit music for cunts”.

Poor guy.

Hope he alright, would seem a big deal to make a statement like this when they could easily go on a couple of year break an no one would question such are album cycles these days.

The mutual consent part made me think of a manager in the relegation zone though

Poor bloke. Huge decision for a band. Hope he pulls through okay.

I hope her gets the help he needs.
A friends band supported kasabian at a gig in brighton about 10 years ago and we met Tom, couldn’t have been a more friendly and lovely guy.

Got dragged along to see Serge’s solo project last year and it was actually brilliant, he’s a really good frontman. Can probably see them just getting a bass player in and him doing all the vocals/“c’mon then” posturing.

I saw this didn’t see Mike Joyce liking it. I didn’t get the joke if I’m honest.

Blew too many roofs off. Not a fan (liked the first album) but hope he sorts himself out.

Feels a bit weird for people to be dunking on them if he’s going to rehab/therapy or whatever. Probably my least favourite band but they must’ve been going almost 20 years, a good while by any stretch.

Your first paragraph would be true at any point, but particularly at the moment where no-one’s going to be doing much for the foreseeable.

Hope he’s alright. Not my favourite band by any stretch and I enjoy the roof gags on here, but they’re a better band than they’re given credit for (first couple of albums anyway)

Sad news. Tom was a regular guest on the BBC Leicester City podcast for a long while and seemed lovely, he disappeared a while ago and I was wondering what happened.

My mate supported Kasabian years ago just as he was getting into music and him and Serge were SO friendly to him, texted each other for a while after giving advice on the industry and stuff like that. They seem like good lads.

Banger after banger too, ofc.
