Keane announce Fierce Panda gig and unveil Higher Than The Sun video


Story by Jack Foley

AHEAD of the release of their Best Of album, Keane will play a tiny Fierce Panda gig at the Tunbridge Wells Forum on Friday, October 25, 2013, to mark the first ever Keane release, 10 years ago.

The Best Of Keane will be released on November 11, 2013, alongside the band’s new single, Higher Than The Sun, the official video for which is below.

In 2003 an independent label called Fierce Panda released a couple of singles by a wee band called Keane. The singles – Everybody’s Changing and This Is The Last Time – did pretty well.

Ten years on, those very songs are making an heroic appearance on The Best Of Keane and to celebrate this event Fierce Panda and Club Fandango – who promoted a pawful of breakthrough Keane shows that year – are putting on the very special tiny show.

Tom Chaplin, of Keane, said: “We’re delighted to tell you that we’re downing all our fancy production and heading to the Tunbridge Wells Forum for a show on October 25th. As well as being part of the celebrations for the Best Of, this will mark 10 years since the release of Everybody’s Changing on legendary indie label Fierce Panda.

“Fierce Panda got us (and many other bands) started on our way, so this is a bit of a nod to their wonderfulness. See you there!”

Tickets available on Monday, October 7, 9am UK time, from this link
