Kaiser Chiefs see in 2012 with the news of two brand new songs, and "SOUVENIR" - a career spanning collection overseeing their singles from 2004 - 2012, as well as the announcement of an Australian tour, their second in under 12 months.

The sixteen track "SOUVENIR" collates the band’s extensive and successful singles career to date. The album includes no less than six Top Ten hits, numerous airplay successes and a Number One (2007) UK & European airplay hit in the shape of "Ruby". In addition, the album also includes two newly written songs: "Listen To Your Head" and "On The Run", the latter of which was one of the top 5 most played songs on Triple J in February. The track also received its worldwide debut in Australia.

Since bursting onto the musical stage in 2004 the five-piece has provided the musical backdrop for young and old alike, be it the effervescence of debut "Oh My God", the generation-jumping triumphant "Ruby", the anthemic enormity of favourites "The Angry Mob" or "Modern Way" and on that musical journey, become one of the most successful singles bands of the past decade.

Lyrically adept, musically on the button, Kaiser Chiefs have been past masters of writing the classic British 45, and as these tracks attest, have witnessed a group mining a rich vein of creativity which continues with the addition of two brand new singles included here.

Written and produced by the band’s Nick Hodgson, "Listen To Your Head" (mixed by Rich Costey) was recorded in the band’s East London studio, Chewdio, early in 2012. The second of the new tracks, "On The Run" sees the band reunited with Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) who oversaw production duties on the band’s multi-million selling debut "Employment" (2005) and its triple-platinum selling successor "Yours Truly, Angry Mob" (2007) . Mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (The Vaccines, Interpol), "On The Run" acts as the final piece of the musical jigsaw and signals the imminence of "SOUVENIR".

Kaiser Chiefs have also confirmed their return to Australia in May for Groovin' The Moo and sideshows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The band last performed in Australia last July at Splendour In The Grass.

"SOUVENIR:The Singles 2004-2012" will be released in Australia on May 11 2012 to coincide with the tour. It will be released through Liberator Music and available on CD and digitally through all usual outlets.
