Primarily inspired by new wave and punk rock music of the late 1970s and 1980s, the band has released five original studio albums:
Their latest Education, Education, Education & War, is the first album to feature the new Kaiser Chiefs drummer, Vijay Mistry, after Nick Hodgson left the group in December 2012.
Kaiser Chiefs' bassist Simon Rix says: "We learned a lot last year when we were making the record.
"We had to make some changes, and I think we felt like we were the underdogs again.
"We felt like maybe not everyone was looking forward to the next Kaiser Chiefs album as we were."
The band's hits include I Predict A Riot, Ruby, The Angry Mob and Everything Is Average Nowadays.
But despite the big hits the band has seen each album sell less than its predecessor.
Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson says: "Everyone wants to blame someone else for selling less records.
"But it's nobody's fault but yours. It's down to you to write better songs, or deliver them in a better way."
The Kaiser Chiefs play the Brighton Centre on Wednesday 11th February. Seebrightoncentre.co.uk for more details.
