We have to remind him to track back three years to the last time we talk about it Kasabian. It was in the year 2017, the British band with their sixth and last studio album For Our Loud Crying. Since then, there have been some concerts and the announcement of an album, the not seem to come so quickly. However, this week was filled with more headlines in Newspapers, forums, and auditoriums as before.
It was the day of yesterday (6. July), the Kasabian announced that their singer, Tom would Meighan, is the quintet in Leicestershire for to focus “his energies align to your life”. Something that came as a complete surprise (if you even have, in addition to their well-known problems of mental health). In fact, it was expected that in the coming months, the band could return to the studio to record their seventh album, for those who own Tom Meighan he said he had a couple of songs.

“Now, the legal procedures are completed, we are not in a position to comment on the departure of Tom Meighan of Kasabian.
Nobody in the band wanted this to happen. We have all worked very hard over the last 23 years and we had big plans for our common future. We are absolutely heartbroken.
But we leave the left more remedy than to ask, Tom, the band. There is absolutely no way we can confirm your conviction for assault. Domestic violence and abuse of any kind is totally unacceptable.
As soon as we can, the charges against Tom, we, as a band, we have made the decision that we would not work with him. Unfortunately, we had to contain this information, until we make ourselves guilty in the court.
We were led to believe that Tom raised their hands, and in your statement, you would tell everyone what he had done, but he decided not to do it, fooled a lot of fans.
Ultimately, as much as Tom, all hurt, we are not the victims in this. Domestic violence is something that can’t be excused.
Thank you for your support in this difficult time. I’ll see you soon. Kasabian”.
