Hi Angelrosie, Sorry if I was a bit aggresive in my comment a few days ago. I just get so frustrated that nothing is being posted on here anymore. It's all Facebook & Twitter now. Sad.

Posted by JDP at 12:57am, 18 Jun 2014

I do agree JDP, I hope Mr.Km.com doesn't take a break, too, for lack of subject.

Tim, What do you thing about "Swing out Sister' s Band" ? Compositor, arreglista pianista, la banda con trompeta, saxo ... tocaban muy bien ... sonido swing, jazz, àcid pop ... i la cantante tenía un gran gusto por lo estético ... Una banda inolvidable. Marisa. Barcelona. "Breakout", "Twuillight World", "Surrender" etc etc.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO TIM TOM, JESSE :D I DON'T KNOW IF RICHY IS A DAD TOO,,, BUT FELIZ DIA DEL PAPASITO!

Posted by gabriela at 2:44am, 16 Jun 2014

Yeah, thanks Angelrosie2011, you think we don't know that? The issue is that no-one is maintaining this website, not too mention the forums.

Posted by JDP at 2:12pm, 14 Jun 2014

Hey folks! Just to remember: Richard, Jesse and Tom usually are posting on Twitter.

Yes Choupette, it's a difficult time to the loyal Keane fans. On the one hand, our boys really need this time to focus in their own lives, projects, business, etc, but for the other hand, we, their passionate fans, are dying of longing for them. It's really a trial by fire for us and for them, too!

Posted by angelrosie2011 at 7:10pm, 13 Jun 2014

Choupette, last year i also visited those place, together with my husband. It meant a lot to me. I hope they themselves also miss Keane and be back soon now.

Posted by jado72 at 9:38am, 13 Jun 2014

Right, choupette, pretty depressive place here...

"La banda Keane pasó por el festival de Cap Roig anteanoche como un pequeño huracán sonoro. Con el argumento de la presentación de su nuevo disco, Strangeland, el grupo liderado por Tim Rice abrió la triunfal noche con You are young, y a partir de ahí la noche se transformó en una fiesta en la que el público se alió desde el principio con la banda de Sussex (ahora convertida en cuarteto). Los temas de su nuevo álbum cantados por Tom Chaplin ls permitieron recuperar el contagioso directo que les encumbró cuando publicaron su primer disco Hopes and fears, hace casi un decenio". Barcelona. Estoy enamorada de ti Tim.

Video Helioscentric Studios directed Ed. Rue. Tim enseñándonos los keyboards, los pedales, los efectos, todos ellos enchufados. En una habitación con dos ventanales, entrando la luz. Explicándonos que el no conocía a nadie que con sonidos de piano hiciera salida de guitarra. Acaba el vídeo con "Fly to me". Para mi una de la mejores melodías. Barcelona. Marisa.

Si pudieran resumir en 3 palabras lo que para ustedes significa: 1- keane 2- hopes and fears 3 - los 10 años transcurridos en las giras, fans. ¿Cuáles serian?

Posted by mabe at 1:56am, 02 Jun 2014

Helloooo!!!!!!!! I'm missing you my boys!

Posted by roosyangel at 5:52pm, 30 May 2014

Hello Keane! Just a simple coincidence/curiosity: the letter of my first name it’s H and the letter of my last name it’s precisely F!! My professional signature it’s exactly HF!... Well, it’s never too late to congrat KEANE for the remarkable “Hopes and Fears” album. It´s never too late to say, again, that the name you have chosen for the album “Hopes and Fears” was magnificent. My life it’s a constant battle between HOPES & FEARS!... I HOPE to see KEANE back again very, very soon. My FEAR is that, provably, it will never go to happen again. I HOPE the time will prove that my FEAR was completely senseless and mistaken!... Once again, Congratulations for the 10 years anniversary of the “Hopes and Fears” album

"In 2013, Tim co-wrote the song Jump with Gary Barlow for the latter's solo album, Since I Saw You Last. In 2014 Rice-Oxley co-wrote the bonus track "Holding On To Nothing" for Lily Allen's album, Sheezus." Tim está colaborando con cantantes co-escribiendo lyrics. Necesitaba saber en qué affaires musicales estaba trabajando. Espero verte pronto Tim tocando el piano. Creando. Marisa. Barcelona.

Miss you...Love you... it is what it is.....

Posted by Nina at 5:29pm, 24 May 2014

I always remember when and where I first heard Somewhere only we know.......... I was driving home along a bumpy farm road and passing some fallen down ancient hawthorn trees. I was mesmerised by this amazingly pure voice and a beautiful haunting song. That was it ! I was hooked from then on, to the exclusion of practically every other band. As far as I am concerned not many live up to the Keane standard. Please don't let Strangeland be the last album you make. That would be unbearable for us all. Liz

Eu adoro o H&F, eu conhecí o Keane em 2007, ao assistir ao DVD Stranger no canal a cabo Euro Channel e aí , me apaixonei. Beijos, Regina.

Posted by Regina Brz at 11:42pm, 18 May 2014

Tocar el piano es un deporte físico y mental. Me he dado cuenta hoy con las lessions. Físico porqué la colocación de las manos es fundamental. Dirigir el impulso hasta los dedos y tocar con la yema. La espalda recta. Y sobretodo tocar con el cuerpo relajado. La tensión es la contraposición de lo que no se debe hacer. La mente clara pero a la vez concentrada. Todo un ejercicio externo e interno digno de adjetivar como excelente para mantenerse en forma. Y lo más importante, tener una guia que sepa sacar de ti lo mejor. Con la mano derecha haces la melodía y con la izquierda el bajo. No siempre es así. Un instrumento completo i de aprendizage indefinido. Para gente sin prisas. Besos Tim. Barcelona. Marisa.

Esperanzas, miedos, ilusiones, novedades .... Se inicia un proyecto the first time. Otro proyecto será una nueva ilusión ... Marisa. Barcelona. Keane is finished. I am sure this.

Posted by OXFORDD at 5:58pm, 11 May 2014

H&F changed my life in many aspects, and I am refusing to believe all this should be over now. I miss you so much.

Posted by Gudrun (Austria) at 4:19pm, 11 May 2014

I can't believe how fast the time has passed through all these years, I remember hearing you for the first time with "Somewhere only we know", and since then, I've been in love with your music. Congratulations for all these nice years!!! Although, I think Under the iron sea is the best album, I have special care to Hopes and fears and it was indeed a masterpiece. Thanks for your music, because you have become an important part of my daily life during all these years through your songs. Sometimes I get disappointed with the current situation where music seem to die since there is a lost of creativity and originality that powered the great bands of the past as Queen, only few current bands as you make the exception. Hope to see you someday again in Barcelona, because it is always a pleasure to enjoy from your music on stage. Take care. Una forta abraçada des de Barcelona!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eva

The first time I heard Keane I was driving to work listening to the dreadful local breakfast radio show. They played "This Is The Last Time" - I'd never heard it before - I thought WOW, I love that song! When it had finished the female presenter said "it's my birthday tomorrow and I want that album - Hopes & Fears by Keane". It was my birthday too in a few days’ time and I thought, yes I want that album too. My husband bought it for me and I've never looked back. It's an amazing album by an amazing band. I've lost track how many concerts I've been to but they were all brilliant. If it wasn't for Keane, we would probably never have visited the likes of Madrid, Berlin, Tunbridge Wells, Kenwood House and of course, my favourite place in the world, East Sussex. Thank you guys for the music and the memories. Don't stay away too long and Happy 10th Birthday Hopes & Fears xx

Congratulations my beloved boys, H&F is the greatest album that you guys have ever made!

A Very Happy 10th Anniversary to Hopes and Fears, a record which I shall continue listening to everyday and on and on...always sounds brand new, magnificent, exciting and so very emotional! It goes without saying that I love all Keane albums...absolutely *need* them all in my life. But H&F is a most cherished treasure, and my forever "bedside table album" :) I'm sure we'll be celebrating for many more yrs...this is one of those albums which became a timeless Classic, and an integral part of our lives. Tk You so much my beloved Band...for yr existence :) ♥. Lots of love! XXXX
