Keane aren't currently together as a band. Tom is off doing a solo album and in between writing and producing for others, Jesse & Tim are working on the follow up to their debut Mt Desolation record. Tim & Tom will however be doing an intimate acoustic gig together to raise funds for Battle Festival on August 8th. Tickets will be going ...
[quote user="Merja"]I think it's a good idea to take some "time off"!
Strangeland - to me - was such a disappointment! Sure, the basic approaches were good, but it felt like they absolutely wanted to create an album that sells. There were so many potentially great songs, but they overloaded them with unnecessary ...
[quote user="jdp"] Even better, how how about they reform Keane & tour as a triple bill!!!
Although it would be difficult for every one to remember which hat they are wearing.
But it would be an awesome concert, say a 3 & half hour marathon of Tom, then Mt Desolation, then Keane.
They could be their own headline act!!!! ...
I got the impression they've only had a few sessions so far. Potential timing for the new album intrigued me (could they debut their new songs to coincide with the fan gathering next summer?) so I asked Jesse on Twitter what the chance was that they'd be finished by then. His answer? 50/50 chance..

Just letting you know the link to Facebook doesn't work.
All the best,
Just updated the link. It should work now!
[quote user="silentbob"] Be interesting to know what was happening with this... I might be interested.. though i'd probably get stoned by other the other members of this board...
Here's a rundown of what we are working on making happen for the event:
A fan concert photography exhibit ...
[quote user="Son2"]How much is it, and what is it for?[/quote]
We'll announce once we've finalized planning. And what is the fee for? Exhibits and events that cost our committee money to produce. We're quite excited about what we're planning to offer. The agenda should be ready to release early next year.
There has been talk for ages about a KeaneCon but the problem was - no one wanted to be in charge of it. I was inspired by what a group of a-ha fans put together during their final concerts in 2010 and have wanted to do a similar event for Keane fans ever since... Battle / East Sussex Tourism and KeaneTrail have fueled my enthusiasm and a group of ...
For those of you who haven't heard, there is a small committee of fans putting together a worldwide Keane fan meet up next August 7-9 in and around Bexhill/Battle/Hastings. We have a lot of special things planned for those willing to travel for this event. We'll have a website up soon with the details but for now, we're looking for a ...
If it were any other band, I'd say there would be potential to replace the lead singer if they were no longer up for the job. Queen, INXS and Van Halen are bands that come to mind here but this is Keane we're talking about. This is a band that came about through long term friendships and bonding over music. I'm not sure KEANE could ...
