Named after a South African football team and born in the English city of Leeds, the four-piece Kaiser Chiefs enjoyed a rapid rise to fame, becoming one of the UK’s biggest live bands thanks to instant anthems like the classic“Ruby”.

At the peak of their success in 2008, the band (Rick Wilson, Andrew White, Simon Rix, Nick Baines and Nick Hodson) announced a break from the spotlight to work on new material.

The resulting album, The Future is Medieval, was released in summer 2011, and allows fans to choose their own tracklists and customize their cover artwork.
