Keane have big things in store for fans over the next few months. Not only is the band releasing their first studio album since 2008, 'Strangeland,' in May 2012, but they have also announced a handful of North American tour dates in support of their fourth LP.

Tom Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes and Jesse Quinn revealed their 2012 tour dates on Keane's official website with a video set to 'Silenced by the Night,' the band's first single off of 'Strangeland.' So far, only tour dates for June have been announced. The trek will take the quartet throughout the U.S. and they also have a few Canadian dates lined up.

The remaining populace of Keane listeners can purchase tickets when they're made available to the public on Friday, March 30 at 10AM local time.
