British alternative rock band KEANE
is coming to the Philippines for the very first time!
Hailing from East Sussex, England, Tom Chaplin (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Tim Rice-Oxley (piano/synthesizers), Jesse Quin (bass/electric guitar), and Richard Hughes (drums/percussions) form the four-piece behind hits ôSomewhere Only We Know,ö ôEverybodyÆs Changing,ö and ôIs It Any Wonder,ö among others. One of the last few stops in the bandÆs tour of Asia this year, this one-night-only concert in Manila is presented by Trilogy Live, a part of STRO World, in cooperation with Dayly Entertainment.
The bandÆs latest album Strangeland, released May 2012 debuted at No. 1 on the UK Albums chart. This feat made them one of three bands in UK pop history to have five consecutive No. 1 albums. ItÆs the first album to feature bassist Quin as an official member.
In an interview with NME.com, Chaplin said, ôThe album has the vibe of earlier Keane. Perfect Symmetry was big, self-indulgent, while this record felt a bit more like we knew ourselves betterùwhat our strengths were.ö Rice-Oxley added, ôWe wanted to focus on making sure that the songs were great. You have to write a lot of shit songs to get to the good ones.ö Hughes said, ôIn many respects, it feels like the completion of a circle. On the album, we have songs that draw upon the experiences we used to share as kids growing up in Battle. You can never really go back, of course. WeÆre married. Some of us have kids. Once in a while, though, after a good day, weÆll go to the local pub and talk about everything and nothing until itÆs time to go home. Whatever it is that makes us Keaneùthat invisible glueùis still there. And you can hear it all over in Strangeland.ö
