Leeds five-piece Kaiser Chiefs have announced that they have signed to B-unique, a label whose roster include the likes of Hot Hot Heat and Har Mar Superstar.

The band, who have just completed a tour with another new labelmate The Ordinary Boys, are set to begin recording a single next week. The release, titled I Predict A Riot, will have Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths, New Order etc) at the dials and will be out in mid-October.

Recording for the album will begin later this year, with a proposed release in February 2005.

Kaiser Chiefs' previous single Oh My God (on Drowned in Sound Records) was rather marvellous and received Single Of The Week! from NME in April of this year.
