Keane released the video for their first single "Silenced By The Night," off their highly anticipated fourth studio album Strangeland. The video was shot by renowned rock music video director Christopher Sims in a lime salt mine in Austin, Texas. It follows the story of two friends on a road trip, whose feelings for each other genuinely develop from friendship to falling in love. Watch it below.
Strangeland will be released May 8th on Cherrytree/Interscope Records. To pre-order the album go here.
Keane is singer Tom Chaplin, drummer Richard Hughes, keyboardist Tim Rice-Oxley and bassist Quin. Four years have elapsed since Keane's last album Perfect Symmetry; two since Night Train, the EP 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 the release of 2004's 9 platinum Brit award winning 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 to the iridescent pop of Perfect Symmetry.
