Kasabian guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, singer Tom Meighan, bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews catapulted onto the scene in 2004 with their self-titled debut, cracking the Top Five.

They had their first No.1 album in August 2006 for Empire, an LP followed hot on the heels by their second No.1, the psychedelic masterpiece West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, in 2009. Selling almost a million copies worldwide, it confirmed Kasabian's place at the British rock's highest table, voted Best Album by Q and nominated for the Mercury Prize, as well as helping towards the Best British Group gong at The Brits, Best Album at the NME Awards and a host of other nominations that year.

Carving a name for themselves as the UK's most exciting live act, they cemented the success of 2011's Velociraptor! with an arena tour and an album hat-trick, scoring their third No.1 in a row! Written and produced by the band's Sergio Pizzorno, the LP spawned singles in Days Are Forgotten, Re-Wired, Goodbye Kiss and Man of Simple Pleasures.

Support will come from Dark Horses and Jersey Budd.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.   We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer.  Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience. 

Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support.  Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried. 

We rely solely on donations to fund our vital work.  You can help transform the lives of young people with cancer.  Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to find out how.

Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity, no. 1062559 (England and Wales) and SCO39757 (Scotland).
