As a long time Keane fan, this news disturbs me. Keane has announced and confirmed that they are “taking a break” after they release their upcoming “Best of…” CD this coming November. It sounds as though lead singer Tom Chaplin is looking to release a solo project and Tim Rice-Oxley will be working on writing songs for other musicians.
Keane has been touring and putting out CDs pretty regularly, so I can support them taking a break. I hope that we see them come back together again soon to release a new CD as a whole band.
