Keane Announce Details for Fourth Album, ‘Strangeland’
Keane have announced a May 8 release date for their fourth album, 'Strangeland.' The British alt-rockers' follow-up to 2008's 'Perfect Symmetry' was produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Howling Bells, the Vaccines) and will be supported by a spring U.K. tour, although no U.S. dates have yet been announced.
"'Strangeland' feels like an adventure that brings with it different things for different people, and like any adventure is full of uncertainty, and the potential for mishap, as well as the possibility of amazing things and glorious discoveries," singer Tim Rice-Oxley says of the album. "I love the idea of the journey through 'Strangeland' being a journey of redemption."
The disc's 'Silenced By the Night' will be the first U.S. single, while another track, 'Disconnected,' will be released as the first single in the U.K. "We're going to shoot videos for both," Cherrytree Records Chairman Martin Kierszenbaum tells Billboard.com.
Keane kick off their 2012 touring schedule May 9 in Bexhill, U.K., and have dates scheduled through a June 8-9 stand in London. Check out their complete itinerary here.
