The guitarist paid tribute to the festival's fans and said: "It's hard to put into words… I thought there were seven levels and there's actually eight. We got to the eighth level last night. It was absolutely unbelievable. The crowd… We flew out of this universe."

He went on to add:
We've not played here for seven years. It was great – it was a huge moment.

Pizzorno also said that he and his bandmates had been adamant that they wouldn't return to the event unless they were chosen as headliners. "The second time we played we headlined the second stage, and after that it was so good we said we'd never play it again unless we headlined the main stage," he said. "Which was, I suppose, a risky manoeuvre, but it paid off."

The ‘Club Foot’ singers released their fourth studio album ‘Velociraptor!’. Meighan and guitarist Serge Pizzorno thinking the band are ready for bigger things.

The pair revealed, “I can’t say anything about it, but time will tell. It would really be something if we could play Wembley Stadium, to be big enough to headline there? Magnificent. Who knows what’ll happen next year.

“When [Leicester’s] stadium was built it wasn’t designed to be sturdy enough to have rock shows there, we keep asking the council if it can be strengthened. It would be incredible to have a homecoming at City’s ground as the biggest venue in Leicester only holds 2,000 people, which is frustrating.

“It would have been brilliant to play Glastonbury but all we need is a phone call from Michael Eavis and we’ll be there for 2013. One thing I really want to do before all this ends is to headline Glastonbury as we’ve always had an incredible time playing there. Hopefully it’ll happen.”

Speaking to Xfm's John Kennedy, singer Tom Meighan said: "These little prehistoric things, they were always in packs, like scavengers. It kind of feels like us, Kasabian against the rest of the world. I've always had an obsession with dinosaur names, amphibian names, you know, snake names. They sound amazing. They have these amazing Latin names."

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno continued: "They were small, but they were the only ones who could defeat the T Rex. The T Rex being the music industry! It works on both levels, too. But ultimately, it's just a beautiful word."

Tom added, "It's menacing, menacing cartoonish. It's bright and really fast."

The pair also revealed that in fact this year, the album was finished. Serge said, "It took us six months from start to finish. Now, finally it's out. We've been sitting on this for a long while cause it was finished in February, March."
