Keane celebrate the 20th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album in 2024 with a world tour that kicks off in Mexico City April 1st and a special remastered version of Hopes and Fears coming May 10th.
Propelled by their classic smash ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, Hopes and Fears is undoubtedly one of the best debut albums ever made. Since then the band have released a further four full length albums – with the most recent record Cause and Effect arriving in 2019.
The band have sold 12 million albums worldwide, with Hopes and Fears entering the list of 40 best-selling albums in the UK of all time. They’ve toured in over 40 countries.
Keane, originating from Battle, East Sussex, are one of Britain’s best loved bands comprised of Tim Rice-Oxley (composer and pianist), Tom Chaplin (lead vocals), Richard Hughes (drummer), and since joining the band fully in 2011, Jesse Quin (Bass).
Songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley and singer Tom Chaplin were school friends in East Sussex before forming Keane. Their enduring appeal revolves around the honesty of their songs and the emotion in the music. They are as relevant today as they were twenty years ago.
