KEANE have announced details of three free impromptu UK dates, their smallest in the UK for four years, to coincide with the release of their third album, Perfect Symmetry.

The band will play venues in Edinburgh, Leeds and London later this month.

Tom Chaplin explained: “We decided last night that we want to get out there next week and play our new songs to our fans in an intimate environment.

“We love playing live, we love the intensity of the atmosphere in those clubs, you just can’t capture that in an Arena or Festival. We want to do it like we used to! It is going to be amazing fun.”

Keane will play:

Octobert 13 – Edinburgh, Voodoo Rooms
14 – Leeds, Cockpit 2
15 – London, 100 Club

Fans will be able to apply for tickets from 9am on Thursday, October 9 from the band’s official website. For more information on the gigs, and to apply for tickets please visit

Earlier this week, Keane won ‘Track of the Year’ at The Q Awards for their recent download-only single, <>Spiralling.

Keane release their new album Perfect Symmetry next Monday – October 13. The new single, The Lovers Are Losing, is released on October 20, both through Island Records.
