SXSW 2012 Live Gig Videos: Keane preview songs from ‘Strangeland’ at Filter / American Rag Showcase

By on Thursday, 22nd March 2012 at 4:00 pm

Ah yes, didn’t you know I was an unashamed Keane fangirl? For those friends of mine who were allowed to see my schedule at SXSW for the week, all I got back was laughing and funny look at my schedule for Thursday afternoon (15 March). In red block capital letters, Thursday’s schedule began with “park myself at Cedar Street Courtyard / Filter and American Rag showcase to wait for Keane”. But seriously folks, when else will you get a chance to see this hugely popular mega band on an outdoor patio? Never, except at SXSW.

Keane – now a four-piece with the permanent edition of touring bassist Jesse Quin – played a shorter than normal set in this showcase, but four songs included in their performance are brand new songs that will appear on their forthcoming fourth album, ‘Strangeland’, out the first week of May. I filmed three – ‘Silenced by the Night’, ‘The Finish Line and ‘On the Road’ – along with set closer and fan favourite ‘Somewhere Only We Know’. Enjoy all the videos below.
