Know it isn’t a gig thing but what’s people’s take on Kasabien and what’s happened?
Been a weird 24 hours as the initial statements seemed to gather quite a lot of people supporting their and Toms actions yet today’s news kind of casts it in a different light and if they did all know this was coming out today it feels a bit of a PR disaster that they didn’t say anything else or manage it differently (guess with him appearing in court maybe they couldn’t say anything yesterday publicly). Not really one of their fans but know they were due to perform some big hometown gigs this summer. Not sure where they can go from here.
The statement yesterday misled a number of people, including myself. We were lead to believe it was mental health problems due to the wording of the statement yet we were all left embarrassed when the real reason came out today.
Not much they could say/do until the conclusion of the trial but IMO they should have just left it yesterday and left the statements until today.
It's hard to say what the future holds now - a lot of people think there's no way forward as the band is 'nothing without Tom' but IMO they should give 'carrying on' a chance, whether its with Serge as the frontman or someone else.
