Ticket Information for Keane‘s Irish Tour Dates this November 2012 is as follows:
Four years have elapsed since Keane’s last studio album ‘Perfect Symmetry’, two since ‘Night Train’, the mini-LP which followed its three full-length predecessors to the top of the British album charts, securing them a place in pop history.
If Keane’s feverishly loyal fanbase wondered what the group’s next album would sound like, they weren’t the only ones. In the eight years following Keane‘s 2004 9× platinum Brit award winning release ‘Hopes & Fears’, every Keane album has marked a clear progression from the previous one: the anxious emotional terrain mapped out by ‘Under The Iron Sea’; the iridescent poptimism of ‘Perfect Symmetry’ featuring the electro charged hit song ‘Spiralling’, voted Q Magazine’s 2008 Song Of The Year.
Keane recorded their new album ‘Strangeland’ with producer Dan Grech (Radiohead, The Vaccines, Howling Bells, Lana Del Rey) in the UK at ‘Sea Fog’, Ivor Novello Award winner Tim Rice-Oxley’s studio. Keane label it their most personal and honest record yet. The British multi-million selling band are now a four piece with the addition of new member bass player Jesse Quin who collaborated with Rice-Oxley on Mt. Desolation. The fourth album from Keane hit number 1 in the Irish album charts on its release in May.
Tim Rice-Oxley of Keane recently spoke of the album, stating: “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. I love the idea of the journey through ‘Strangeland’ being a journey of redemption.”
