The Kaiser Chiefs have admitted that they had more air-play of their hit single I Predict a Riot during last August's riots across England.

But the band's lead singer Ricky Wilson told BBC Breakfast the song had no links with the riots and is about going home from a night out.

Bassist Simon Rix said their latest album, Souvenir, does not signal an end for the band but it is a singles collection for fans.

Wilson also revealed he will be appearing in the stage version of The War of the Worlds alongside a holligram of Liam Neeson.
