Kaiser Chiefs Get Reflective In Brand New Single ‘Burning In Flames’

Taken From New Studio Record Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album
Out March 1st, 2024

April UK Headline Tour – Includes 2 Special London Shows @ Troxy & Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace

Kaiser Chiefs today release their brand new single ‘Burning In Flames’ – taken from their forthcoming new studio album, the aptly titled Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album, out March 1st 2024.

Upbeat, and dripping in retro-disco sound, ‘Burning In Flames’ sees frontman Ricky Wilson in a reflective mood, looking back on the hugely successful career to date, as well as their staying power. He explains: “Being in a band for over 20 years isn’t as easy as we make it look. Sometimes any one of us could feel like we don’t want to do it anymore. There aren’t many of us bands left from the early 2000’s and that’s probably at times because it doesn’t seem worth it. But if your favourite toy is broken you don’t throw it away, you fix it. The real success is being able to make an Easy Eighth Album.”

Produced by Amir Amor (Rudimental), Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album sees the band return with a fresh and bold new sound. From the Nile Rodgers co-write of new single ‘Feeling Alright’, to the frantic ‘Beautiful Girl’, horn-laden Kaiser Chiefs throwback ‘Job Centre Shuffle’ and joyous punch in the gut that is ‘Jealousy’, these ten tracks are a true statement of intent from a band that continues to deliver the goods again and again.


The album announcement arrives off the back of roaring success with previous releases ‘Jealousy’ & ‘How 2 Dance’, as well as a big UK arena headline tour at the end of last year.

Where 2019’s Duck straddled the tide between Northern-Soul euphoria and early ‘00s antithesis, 2024 will see Kaiser Chiefs stepping into a renewed spotlight; a hook-heightened universe in which Ricky Wilson, Andrew “Whitey” White (guitar), Simon Rix (bass), Keyboardist Peanut and Vijay Mistry on drums, come together to once again create what they craft best; breakthrough belters for the world’s dancefloor. 

Off the back of a UK arena tour, Kaiser Chiefs are changing things up and will return next year with a run of headline shows in April, including outdoor dates, as well as two special London shows at Troxy & Flippers Roller Boogie Palace (Apr 20th & 21st). They are not to be missed!
