A message from the band
31 Jul 2008

Dear friends,

As you'll have gathered from our many and varied blogs, broadcasts and photos, we've been lost in a world of new music over the last few months - writing songs, pushing our limits, making fools of ourselves, and generally having a wicked time.

We started out in Paris, where Jon Brion inspired us to create first and think later.

We took the night train to Berlin, where everything came together in an avalanche of experimentation that took us all by surprise; where we made a pact with Stuart Price to ignore the rules of good taste; where we were hypnotised by Marlene Dietrich and spent many a long night throwing ideas around in the crumbling Cabaret-esque glamour of our favourite bar.

We've hidden ourselves away in the depths of the English countryside, recorded a new track in London at the last possible moment, and now we're in Los Angeles tying up the loose ends.

We've had an amazing time making this album and we're very, very proud of it. It's called Perfect Symmetry and will be released on October 13th.

Tom, Tim and Richard

Hola porfavor Keane en su gira contemplen MEXICO en este país los amamos son grandiosos y nos encanta cada vez que vienen .... ya estoy ansioso por tener en mis manos su nuevo cd que yo sé que va a ser un éxito como todo lo que ustedes hacen de música.... arriba Keane we loved!! :) salu2 desde México

Let me be clear when I say this. When Keane decided to do their third album I knew... and I am not a scientist... that it was going to be different. Then the band came out in the open and said that it was not I repeat not going to be all soft sailing for the songs. If I recall well, Tom said some of these songs were going to be a bit more up beat in his interview. Please Please be very careful what you post about the bands album and songs. Remember they sing how they feel and we don't know what they are going through, moving away from, or dealing with in this particular place in their lives. I am a fan just like everyone else and I care about people genuinely, I dislike judgmental prejudice because it is reckless thought. Listen to the words. Thank you Keane Lauren (Trinidad & Tobago)

This song Spiralling is totally, utterly 80ties and very Bowie. Which is a great compliment I think cause all my good memories are stuck in the 80ties and I adore Bowie. Everything about this song makes me want to take out my dancing shoes! I want to kiss you for being so brillant........! XXX Yo!

Concert in MEXICOOOOOOOO, Pleaseeeeeee, Tom i Love you, I LOVE TO KEANE, I Love your music, to Guadalajara Mexico, pleaseeeee.

The song feels and sounds like a mixture of " Nik Kershaw and Go West" from the 80's. It is very fresh in its sound and makes you want to listen to it over and over again. A very clever pop song. Looking forward to hearing it performed live at some point soon I hope.

I JUST CANT WAIT FOR IT!!! I love you guys!!! Keane are the best ever!!! I love Spiralling!!! Tom I love you!!!Lots of love form Mexico!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Posted by sam (uk) at 10:46am, 10 Aug 2008

The only thing I can say is that "Spiralling" is so amazing...I'm waiting for"Perfect Symetry"...I know the album is going to be so good. I love Keane, I love what they do...well, I love everything about them. It's such a good band and there's no doubt that it's one of the best bands around the world (the best one, in my opinion)

Posted by fabi_k2 at 6:39am, 10 Aug 2008

It was the best music I heard in all the world!!! so I´m from Brazilian and every fa likes so much the music!! please hurry back to Brazil

I Love Keane

Posted by Liah Rice-Oxley at 3:50pm, 09 Aug 2008

Hi guys, I have been a fan of yours since you started. I was really excited about this free download but I'm afraid it was a big let down. I know you went to Berlin and allowed the creative processes to flow but Keane did not need to write an Achtung Baby. I hope the album is not a continuation of what I have heard already. Too much ABC/Talking heads/Wham and not KEANE!

Posted by joecr36 at 9:51am, 09 Aug 2008

The new song is FANTASTIC! All I can say is "Please, sir(s). Can I have some more?"

Oh man....i cant belive it!!!!!.....can't wait for the album........but the prob is....its hard to get a copy in our country!!!!

Posted by darkmatter at 5:24pm, 08 Aug 2008

Hello Keane ! I live in France, near Paris. I've always loved your music, you are my favourite band and artists. I know all your songs by heart ! they are so great and meaningfull ! You guys have had a great idea to let people download freely the first track of your next album ! This song is different from the songs from the former albums but it's great and matches perfectly with your new look ! But I can understand some people don't like it and prefer the former ones...but I think we shouldn't like an artist only for a predefined style...Tom's voice's still marvellous and your ability to change style proves you are great artists !!! And now I'm really looking forward to buying and listening to your new album on October 13th !!!! Many kisses from France Charlotte

Posted by littlemisscharlotte at 9:00am, 08 Aug 2008

Very good song and great rythm. Congratulations! Thanks for the download.

@domi. just a precision. The cartoon is french but it's originally coming from a comic strip made by the absolutely great Derib and Job who are Swiss...I didn't want to have all Switzerland on my back:) They are really great writter and drawer for kids.

Posted by ptitonnerre at 9:40am, 07 Aug 2008

@domi. Tu n'es pas français? Quelque chose me faisait "ist schon"penser que tu étais peut-être allemand. Si c'est le cas ton français est bien meilleur que mon anglais. My nickname ptitonnerre is coming from an old french cartoon with a Native American, and it was essentially talking about ecology, nature preservation.

Posted by ptitonnerre at 8:56am, 07 Aug 2008

THANK YOOOOUUUUUU!!! Thank you very much, you 3 boys because you made my day yesterday. I listened to your WONDERFUL, TERRIFIC Spiralling at last!!! Thank you for thinking on your millions of fans around the world sharing your new song. Yesterday I went back to my beloved 80's music with your magic sounds. I also like your new look and the colours of the album. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a lesson for me too! I love your old songs, I cry every time I listen to your last cd because it's so dead on and Tom's voice is amazing! But, because everything you do is perfect, I believe that "Perfect Symetry" is going to be a it! I am definetly buying it! Love from Portugal

"Spiralling" is a grand song you lot created, i have been enjoing it a lot, but Tim i have a question is "Spiralling" in "Perfect Symmetry"? I wish it was, and can it come with a DVD with the album like in "Under The Iron Sea" because i'm fascinated and curious about how the the third album was made, all the behind the scenes and bla bla bla, etc. And one last question will this album have a song a bit similar to "Bedshaped" and "A Bad Dream"? Take care guys and HURRY UP WITH THAT BLOODY ALBUM I'M DYING for it Please HURRY!!!!! And Best wishes from Jose Windle

A GAZILLION THANKS FOR THE FANTABULOUS SPIRALLING. I hear echoes of Talking Heads and Duran Duran and I absolutely love the quality of Tom's voice. Its such a happy sound - it makes me smile and want to dance!! But as I am at "work" I'll just smile for now! Anne-Marie, Dublin.

Adoro l' immagine dove siete tutti e tre seduti davanti ai tavolini gialli di un bar con le immancabili tazze da te': finalmente vi vedo a colori, mi piace l' atmosfera che si respira li' attorno, soprattutto avverto che avete un' aria contenta, siete tre uomini meravigliosi, tenaci ed audaci! Vi auguro un successo stratosferico, ma adesso cosa succedera', non vi farete vedere piu' ? Io gia' mi sto rattristando solo al pensiero... Comunque augurandovi tutto il bene di questo mondo vi do un arrivederci al piu' presto! Bye bye, Sabrina da Catania.

Wow ! Good-looking site ! I adore it ! And the music of Spiralling is as sparkling as it is stunningly beautiful, I love it a lot. Thank you for this superb gift. The sand is falling slowly but surely inside the sandglass. On this subject, I always liked this french proverb: TOUT VIENT A POINT A QUI SAIT ATTENDRE which means: with time and patience, we succeed, we obtain what we want in the end. I hope my english is correct, I did my best, of course with the aid of my [COLLINS & ROBERT (French-English/English-French) DICTIONARY]. Alors, concernant l’Album, j'ATTENDRAI le temps qu'il faudra !

Yes, we are daft because we didn't download yet but there are still few days to do it... You know we lived these glorious times to buy the music without the Net... We are old, and so we are old school and rather polite... So we thank you first, before to do it and before any thoughts or critics... Personaly, the more we listen, the more we love !!!... We didn't breathe a word during the last few days but we had the pleasure to discover the song in live in Jo WHILEY's show (I like this woman and I like at everytime she talks about KEANE !)... It was a lovely moment like when baby comes... It's a result from months of work and we should never judge too faster... Sound is not bad at all, pretty cool and cheerful.... Tom's voice is always amazing to give the "+", and even if the song doesn't give that we could call "the great KEANE's thrill", it's a pretty and slight song for introducing the album or also for radios and it's pretty sure that most people will love this song, or the reluctant could be seducted by it with the time !!!.... We count with it to have fun in gigs... Lots of love from France.

Ragazzi... che forti emozioni mi ha fatto provare questa nuova canzone! Ha un sound talmente energico che ti colpisce subito al cuore, io me ne sono innamorata al primo ascolto, la voce di Tom è potente, limpida e chiara e l' arrangiamento strumentale è così coinvolgente che mi fa sognare! Grazie di cuore Tom, Richard e Tim per averci regalato questo straordinario singolo che a me ha fatto battere forte il cuore! Avete realizzato una musica originalissima che rispecchia pienamente la vostra voglia di sperimentare sempre nuove tecniche di suono e di suscitare tanto stupore nel vostro pubblico! Bene, vi posso assicurare che ci siete riusciti benissimo : questa canzone non passerà di certo inosservata e sono sicura che si piazzerà presto ai primi posti nelle charts di tutto il mondo, credetemi, il mio intuito mi suggerisce questo! Tantissimi saluti da Sabrina da Catania, I LOVE YOU!

@ ptittonnerre. don't worry about it. You weren't aggresive or anything. Ist schon Ok. I'm starting to dig the song actually =D. Are you French?

Posted by Domi at 10:32am, 06 Aug 2008

I have played this song several times now and still I'm not sure about it, especially the bridge! I was disappointed because Tom's voice sounds different but then, having said this, I didn't like UTIS to begin with but I soon became hooked. I will love Keane whatever they do and wherever they go, their music has helped me through some difficult times. Actually, just playing Spiralling again and my toes are tapping - yippppeeeeeeeee!

Posted by keanemaiden at 9:42am, 06 Aug 2008

@domi. I'm REALLY sorry if I looked agressive, it was not my intention. I'm a little bit nervous this week, so all my apologize...but still thinking that some comments were quite unfair:) This song sounds good with her retro style. Sounds like an old Bowie and makes me remember my french 80's, with Tom's voice as a free gift. Personally I'm not shocked and I don't think it's that far from what they used to do i the past and from who they are (and maybe it's closer). Anyway, that's FUN, don't take this too seriously. Love and kindness.

This album should win the Grammy! That should! Hopes & Fears nearly, Under The Iron Sea not at all! This should! This should! Perfect Symmetry should win Grammy for the Best Assorted Genred Album!(does it exist?) No probs! It should win in every way possible!

Posted by Sujash Islam at 8:21am, 06 Aug 2008

WOW the new song, "Spiralling", is awesome! Really really love it. Keane is the best band in the world EVER and I seriously need them to come back to Mexico, they rocked this city last time they were here! This album's gonna be totally perfect, I'm pretty sure. What else can you expect from them?! Love them completely!!!!

Posted by jpquibrera at 7:42am, 06 Aug 2008

You know, yesterday I wrote that I wasn't digging your new song, but I noticed today I've listened to it 5 times. It's a bit infectious, and while I still stand by my comment that it's synth-heavy in a very 'forced' way, it's growing on me. I'd like to hear you all talk about what inspired this new sound sometime, as it's -vastly- different from your earlier stuff. :)

dobre ranko keanaci.je novy den 6 august 2008.o chvilu mi ide autobus,tak nemam moc casu.jaaaaj,uz sa neviem dockat vasho noveho albumu.tesim sa nan ,ako mala opica xixixixixi.prajem pekny den.

Posted by mita at 6:55am, 06 Aug 2008

I see a lot of people mentioning the speaking bridge, and just to voice another opinion, I have to say that I really dig that part! I realize several of you disagree, but I think it's great - especially love it when the drums really kick in during the "President" phrase, I think it's so cool! And Victor, you are right on, glad you posted.

Hi Keane! I write from Colombia and i wanna tell you that the new song is amazing! I can see how hard you have working on this new album to make it equal or better than the previous, you are definitely the most original band of these times and I love. Good Luck.

Posted by *Lau* at 3:48am, 06 Aug 2008

boys i'm just happy!! i love spiralling..is one of the best songs that i hear this year!!.. love it.. and i want more!!!... lot of kisses an yes... you ARE ROKING!!!... love you!!

Posted by **Lilito** at 3:26am, 06 Aug 2008

I have to say that some of these comments crack me up. Look, everyone is entitled to their opinion which is why there are forums. Some of us will like this obvious nod to the 80s and some of us will think it's not cool. But what makes me laugh a bit are the posts that are suggesting that Keane should just "remove the bridge" because they don't like it. There is absolutely no way that any artist is going to compromise their vision because some people suggested it on a bulletin board. With so many hundreds of hours that have gone into the arranging, mixing, and recording that goes into place -- it's already set in stone by the time you listen to it. It's already album ready. You have absolutely no input. So please, stop asking the impossible and just deal with the fact that Keane are artists, are pretty much are doing what they want at this point in their careers, and wrote a song that you may not love completely. Even as an unsigned artist, I wouldn't change a bridge because a few people on a board suggested it. LOL!! -Victor

Posted by vleon1012 at 3:22am, 06 Aug 2008

i heard the spiraling already.., yep it is kind of unique song that you guys had made..just like the others. i like the part when the back vocal said.."woohooo.." :) though this song very different with all the previous, it is still worth listening..

i think the keane knew would shock fans haha ha i like i and i liked the new song ive listened thousands times! its surprising , exciting, nostalgic , provocative, its kinetic energy hehe i guess Tom really likes to make questions cause i still remember : " what do u think of?" in youtube

Posted by miss.anne at 2:24am, 06 Aug 2008

I've just heard the new song.... It's AMAZING, INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! Sends me stright to the 80's and it makes me dance around my room. What a contagious sound!!!! and your voice Tom sounds Great. When you said that you were going to brake the rules...You MADE it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope hear more piano in the other songs!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS GUYS and all that made the album possible!!!!!! LOVE YOU.

So I've had a couple of days now to really listen to Spiralling - I loved it immediately and now even more so! I love the contrast of the really rather dark lyrics set against such bright, upbeat music - fantastic! And I have not yet given Keane a great big THANK YOU for providing this song in 256 rather than 128 - that was so, SO good of you! I know it doubled your server traffic at the worst possible time, so please know that we truly appreciate it, so much. Can't wait to see you on the road! :)

Posted by Nico at 1:56am, 06 Aug 2008

HEY! KEANE!!! estamos esperando con mucha energia el nuevo album, estamos contando los dias! Ustedes son lo mejor! Amamos su musica con el alma! Por favor, vuelvan pronto a Monterrey, Mexico.

Posted by Lupita at 1:11am, 06 Aug 2008

Hello KEANE! I'm so excited about the new cd! I became your fan on a hot summer night!!! It was in August 2007 when you came to Oporto, Portugal. After the concert I felt like your songs were perfect for that time in my life. You probably will never read this but I'm happy just to be able to be your fan and listen to your beautyfull music! Looking forward to listen the new song "Spiralling". Love and kisses from Olga in Portugal.

Posted by jackie_mex at 12:43am, 06 Aug 2008

Hello Keane, I absolutely love your music!!!! I first heard of you guys when playing FIFA 07 (haha) and fell in love with the song "Nothing In My way". Since then I've bought both of your CD's and "recruited" tens of friends who are all now huge fans!!! I even bought a piano!! I have to say though, that this new song is totally different and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. The more I listen to it the more I like it, but it really feels a bit poppy and techno/dance. That is not to say I am not a supporter, but just stating my opinion. I miss the classic sounding piano very much (sunshine is a great example). I hope you didn't COMPLETELY do away with it!!! That's not to say that Perfect Symmetry will all sound like "Spiralling", and I'm sure that each song will have its own distinct feel. But it felt very "Pet Shop Boys" to me, I know you guys are fans of them, and maybe that's what your after... Don't mean to disappoint you guys!!! I will buy all of your CD's regardless and would LOVE to see you guys come around here (Boston, Mass). Can't wait for the new album, Cheers!

Ciao Tom, Richard & Tim, Just a short message to say that the new song is fantastic. I really love it so much! It's quite different from your "usual" sound; you had the courage of your inspirations and convictions and in my opinion the "experiment" has given more then excellent results. Thanks fo all the energy you share with this new sound. Tom's voice is O_O Oh my...... and new instruments Tim choose sound really amazing! Hope to meet you soon on the new board =) Thanks for everything! Lots of love Simona

hey guys! The new song sounds different, but amazing! It's very different from the two previous albums, but I guess this is exactly what you want, right? The lyrics are beautiful! Don't know how or why, but you always manage to write something extremely meaningfull to me. I can't wait for Perfect Symmetry. I Hope It won't take too long to be on stores here in Brazil. And for you guys to come back too. Kisses!

Other bands talk about "a new sound" and "experimentation" but, outside of Radiohead, it just doesn't ring true. Then I play Spiralling and I add Keane to that list. I loved the sound on UTIS so much but this will really grow on me and I can't wait for the album.

hmmm.. I am not sure how to call this kind of music... dance techno, sounds like a live version of pop or dance song.? I didn't liked the song, Keane is a rock band, this song is very much not, I think synths should be on the background or in parts of songs, but not to build the entire song. Please forgive me!)

@domi. That's your taste. Nobody can say that a song is better or not than an other. That's different for each person. I just wanted to say that you can like or dislike a song, it's not the problem. It's just the way to say this. It's not because you don't like something that it's bad or that you need to be hardly critical with this.

I'm really surprised by some comments. I think they're really rude with your song and I don't understand why. That's a great song like I've already said. Keep going guys. People don't like changes and differences. I'm sure they will change their mind with time and they will learn to appreciate your work. Grosse bise.

Posted by ptitonnerre at 2:24pm, 05 Aug 2008

You know, mostly people need some time to get used to something new and maybe that can be an explanation as to why the opinions aren't overall positive. Problem is: this new single is just so different, there's no Keane element I can relate to (except for Tom's voice) and that scares the hell out of me. I must say, I did get a bit scared with all the instruments and synths you tried and bought. It's not bad, but it's not good enough to please me... yet. I'm curious about the album.

Posted by Domi at 2:21pm, 05 Aug 2008

Cannot wait for the Album!!

Posted by jonno at 2:04pm, 05 Aug 2008

I've listened to the new song a few times now... I kind of like the verses, but not much for the chorus and I hate the speaking bridge. It just sounds silly, and annoying. And the 'ohhhs'... makes it sound like a novelty song... the song is certainly growing on me though, I guess it has to as I didn't really like it at first! It's probably because I hate 80's music... often generic lyrics and annoying synth sounds. Not sure why you guys like it so much. Still I'm hoping the album will sound like a Keane album overall. Some ambitious piano playing would be very nice!

Posted by Scorched at 2:00pm, 05 Aug 2008

Guys, drop the bridge (did you want to be famous)...it sounds like a Madonna song. I must say the song caught me be surprise....not in good way. The song could work, but that bridge just brings the song down to an immature level. I love all your stuff, but I have to be honest on this one and not be just a blind follower....if it was on either of the last two albums, it would be my least played song.

Posted by TennesseeJed at 1:48pm, 05 Aug 2008

«Spiralling» is a really good song!

Posted by missdiana at 1:47pm, 05 Aug 2008

SO HAPPY! SO HAPPY! SO TOTALLY HAPPY! I’ve been spiralling around all day long. I believe when artists are working they minimize some of the sadness, injustice, violence, corruption, desolation by creating this magical vortex of beauty and energy and love and effort and completeness! I suppose that's our purpose. Visiting the darkness over and over and over bringing a reborn divine spark back to share with this crazy, crazy world of ours. Cos when listening to you we improve and laugh out loud and learn and dance and release hidden tears that we share with your verses only, we are finally able to recognize ourselves surrounded by mirrors made of rhythm, melody and harmony that you create. And sometimes we like what we see, sometimes… tuff! When we fall in love we're just falling in love with ourselves! Oh, new album, can’t wait! Tons of love! By the way, Tim, have you seen “The Corporation�? Brilliant documentary! Second thought… of course you HAVE! Anyway, cheers, Érika.

As usual Keane doesn't give us the best song of their album at first. I didn't know that it was the "come back" of the 80's. At the end of the song, "Dj Keane" is not a good idea but I still believe that the others songs will be nice ( as usual).

Posted by marinou at 12:31pm, 05 Aug 2008

I just downloaded the mp3 and first few notes i wasnt sure, but by the end i was tapping me feet and singing along to the chorus, i especially love the 'OOoOoh' bit lol. So great to hear a new Keane song. I will put it on me MP3 player and be listeneing to it while im watching my sons play cricket in Ansty this week in the bands home county of good old Sussex ...Cant wait for the album you've done it again another Keane success.

Hey! I listed to the spiralling song and... well, in generally is a good song, but... some part I didn't like at all... the whoo in the begining and along the song... the part with "you wanna be president, famous... is uglly. take this out and is a greath song, good sound. to be onest I was expecting more rock sound and not disco, but... still love keane :D

Great track, great eighties sound to it. Can't wait for the album and hopefully a uk tour with it?

Have just downloaded and listened to Spiralling!!! Have to say initially I didn't like the "Wooah" bit in the background as it reminds me of silly kids or party songs. But the song itself is great and the Wooah bit helps.!!!I love the way you manage to marry lyrics to the rythm. Am not crazy about the "do u want to be President " bits etc. sounds too much like Big mouth Bono, and you are far and above better than Bono!!!!! Saw you play in dublin last year and it was truly amazing!!!!! looking forward to new album and hopefully new visit to these shores.

Keane, I love you guys, I really do. But so far, I'm not digging Spiralling. I think what turns me off most is that I'm hearing a sound that sounds very forced out by synthesizers (particularly, the strained, slightly distorted line in the chorus that sounds like a sitar and a trumpet had a baby). I'm all for moving in new directions with music and trying new things, but overusing a synthesizer doesn't instantly equal musical genius. Then again, it may be me; "Is It Any Wonder?" was the single off of UtIS, and wasn't my favorite song by a long shot, though I still loved the album. Guess I'll be waiting till October 13th!

I know you guys are probably sat reading these reviews somewhere in this world..try not to be too dissapointed with the feedback that not so positive..as at the end of the day any feedback is good feedback right.....but personally I think this song is spot on.. I like that you are moving in a new direction with your sound . I am really looking fwd to hearing the album and of course seeing your perform the new songs soon.. Well done X

Hello Keane, Sorry, but I was disappointing of your new Song Spiralling. Tom your voice is wonderful, but your voice show to advantage in this song. But the song is bullish too!!! Who is the old bewitching style?:-( It is new and I be glad of the other new songs in your nex album. I hope we see you in Germany, Kisses

Spiralling is perfect... feels like Genesis. Cheers from the States; see you in Seattle!

Posted by BrandenElvis at 9:24am, 05 Aug 2008

Hello guys! I love "Spiralling" but I was surprised at first. I Love your new style: more optimistic but i'm afraid that "Perfect simmetry" loose the original keane sound... Anyway, I can't wait to hear the whole record and see you in Belgium ;) Love you guys ;)

Posted by mary0901 at 9:22am, 05 Aug 2008

Spiralling disappointed me a bit. But lovely voice from Tom!

Posted by Sujash Islam at 9:12am, 05 Aug 2008

I love Spiralling, Chris Moyles has just played it and said it was 'nice' which is praise I think! Well done can't wait to hear it on tour. Brilliant Julie

Posted by chillysijabat at 8:17am, 05 Aug 2008

I LOVE THE NEW SONG!!!!!!!!!! I never wanted to be president, but I did want to fall in love with KEANE!!!!! My dream came true. aaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Posted by tomtimrich at 8:15am, 05 Aug 2008

Hi! Today I've been listening spiralling the whole day, and I'm still a little bit confuse, its not a bad song, but is totally different to any other song of you. Maybe is just a question of time until I get use to this new style, but I don't like it very much.I think that try new things and grow up its something good, but I dont wanna lose the old KEANE!! Maybe you'll never read this, but I'd like you to know that Your music is the soundtrack of my life, thank you for giving me a lot of happy memories!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!! Oh! and please, please come back to Buenos Aires!!!!

ups..little mistake, it should be "and DON'T forget to put Indonesia in your next promo concert country list :D"

Posted by chillysijabat at 7:55am, 05 Aug 2008

hi every one, i just recently joint this community :) we all in Indonesia (especially me) are expecting you guys come and have your concert here. i even said to all my pals, the only one band that i'm desiring to see their concert is KEANE ;)..absolutelyyyy.. welll...maybe it is enough for me to enjoy your albums for now. i have't heard your new single Spiraling yet.., now i'm in process to loading it up for my iPod..can't hardly waiiittt!!!! i know you guys will make another great album with your tremendous songs :) and forget to put Indonesia in your promo concert country list :D

After all this mayhem I am glad the site is OK though I miss the old cozyness. About "Spiralling" - I totally agree with Miss Anne. The music of the 80s is not new to me - I was alive and kicking at that time. It will take me some time to get used to this side of Keane. I am willing to try, but I´m not sure about the result of my efforts.
