Enter to win Keane's new album Strangeland!

In anticipation for the release of Strangeland (out now on Cherrytree/Interscope Records), Keane premiered a second video trailer providing fans with a behind the scenes look at their new album. Take a look.
Recently, the band rolled out with a new music video for track "Disconnected." Filmed in Spain and co-directed by Spanish directors Juan Antonio Bayona and Sergio G Sanchez, who both worked together on the 2007 horror movie The Orphanage, the “Disconnected” video is an homage to horror movies. Watch the video.

Earlier this month Keane released the video for Strangeland‘s lead single “Silenced By the Night”, which was shot in Austin, TX, while the band was there to play their first ever SXSW Music Festival. Watch the video for “Silenced By the Night” and get a behind the scenes look of the making of the video.
