Kasabian’s now former front man pleads guilty to assault

See original article

Former Kasabian singer Tom Meighan has pleaded guilty to assaulting his former fiancee. The 39-year-old admitted at Leicester Magistrates’ Court attacking Vikki Ager on the evening of 9 April.

The court heard a child had witnessed the assault and contacted 999 to report that a “domestic incident was taking place”.

Meighan was given an 18-month community order and told to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work. On Monday, the group announced Meighan had stepped down from the band in order to deal with “personal issues”.

Kasabian formed in 1997 and reached the UK charts with their third single Club Foot in 2004. Major success came with albums Empire in 2006 and West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum in 2009, which featured a string of hits including Underdog and Fire.

Meighan’s departure leaves guitarist Serge Pizzorno and bassist Chris Edwards as the only remaining founding members.

The untimely departure of Tom Meighan may start to make a little more sense for disappointed fans. We hope this is not the end of Kasabian as a band.
