Kaiser Chiefs: "Guitar music is at an all-time low"
Kaiser Chiefs drummer Nick Hodgson has admitted that guitar music is at an "all-time low".
Hodgson, who is the band's principal songwriter, told the Birmingham Mail that it is a "strange time" to be a member of a rock band.
He also reckons that many of Kaiser Chiefs' peers who started around the same time haven't lasted the "test of time". He said:
"It's a strange time to be in a band. We all know guitar music is at an all-time low. You look at the line-up at V [Festival] and there were only four or five bands. Very few bands which started when we did have stood the test of time."
As previously reported, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson admitted his frustration at the band's recent break between albums, with their 2011 album 'The Future Is Medieval' coming almost three years after their last.
