Kaiser Chiefs Kaiser Chiefs are an English indie rock band from Leeds who formed in 2000 as Parva, releasing one studio album, "22", in 2003, before renaming and establishing themselves in their current name that same year. Since their formation the band consists of lead vocalist Ricky Wilson, guitarist Andrew "Whitey" White, bassist Simon Rix, keyboardist Nick "Peanut" Baines and since 2013 drummer Vijay Mistry, who replaced founding drummer Nick Hodgson who left the band in late 2012.
Kaiser Chiefs Primarily inspired by new wave and punk rock music of the late 1970s and 1980s, the band have released six original studio albums: "Employment" (2005), "Yours Truly, Angry Mob" (2007), "Off with Their Heads" (2008), "The Future Is Medieval" (2011), "Education, Education, Education & War" (2014) and "Stay Together" (2016) one EP "Lap of Honour" (2005), one compilation album "" (2012) and numerous singles, including the number one hit song "Ruby", which was written by Ricky Wilson's cousin Simon Robinson.
Kaiser Chiefs The first single released from the album was "Oh My God" in 2004, which reached number six on the UK singles chart when it was reissued in February 2005. In 2007, the song was covered by Mark Ronson and Lily Allen for Ronson's album "Version". "I Predict a Riot" soon followed as the album's second release. In 2007, the song was ranked number thirty-six on the "NME" "Greatest Indie Anthems Ever" countdown. The top twenty singles "Everyday I Love You Less and Less" and "Modern Way" followed in late 2005. The band opened and performed several of their singles at the Philadelphia Live Eight concert in 2005. The song "Saturday Night" was featured in a pre-release video for the Xbox 360 gaming console. It was posted on the official Xbox 360 page before its launch.

Kaiser Chiefs Kaiser Chiefs released their first compilation album, "", in the UK on 4 June 2012. The album features all of the singles released by the band from 2004 to 2012, as well as a new track titled "Listen to Your Head".
Kaiser Chiefs The album marked an entirely new direction for the band, who went for a more dance-oriented sound. While Education, Education, Education and War was more focused on politics and the perils of war, the Kaiser Chiefs made the album with a focus on love and relationships. Wilson elaborated further on the stark contrast between this last album and 'Stay Together': "The thing about writing a protest album is it's straightforward. Only an idiot would disagree with you. You're just saying war is bad. But when you start talking about relationships like on this record it's harder because there’s a lot more blurred line. There's no right or wrong.”

Kaiser Chiefs Their album "Employment" enjoyed critical and commercial success with over three million copies sold. It has won the band three Brit Awards, including the award for Best British Group, a NME award for Best Album, and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.
