Keane have announced that they will release their fourth studio album "Strangeland" in May. The Sussex band will release the album, which has been produced by The Vaccines/Howling Bells cohort Dan Grech-Marguerat, on May 7. It contains a total of 12 tracks. Speaking about the album, Tim Rice-Oxley said: "'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." The band will tour in support of "Strangeland" in May, playing a total of nine shows. The run begins at Newcastle's O2 Academy on May 23 and runs until June 8, when Keane will headline London's O2 Academy Brixton. "Strangeland" is the band's first album since "Perfect Symmetry", which came out in 2008. The tracklisting for "Strangeland" is as follows: 01. You Are Young 02. Silenced By The Night 03. Disconnected 04. Watch How You Go 05. Sovereign Light Caf 06. On The Road 07. The Starting Line 08. Black Rain 09. Neon River 10. Day Will Come 11. In Your Own Time 12. Sea Fog Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    A little ironic that Keane (a band without a guitar player) would be featured on this site. But Keane are quality song-writers. Looking forward to the new material.

    I'll never understand the complaints about UG posting articles regarding bands/artists that use little or no guitars. For a start, as mentioned above, Keane use guitars on plenty of their recorded material, and the singer plays acoustic/electric guitar more and more. However, the most important thing that some people need to realise, is that virtually all Keane songs feature decent and sometimes intricate basslines, that I for one find fun to play. How is the bass GUITAR not relevant to this site? I'm not even talking synth basses that they occasionally use, but many songs feature proper bass, which is played live by a real bassist. The lead songwriter used to be their bassist when they formed, believe me it's not overlooked in the compositions. If you're going to have 100,000s of bass tabs on the site, why is it remotely outrageous to include articles on a band that contribute significantly to that?

    Actually, they introduced guitars on the "Perfect Symmetry" and having been using guitars more and more during live shows.
