Keane's Tom Chaplin has entered rehab for "drink and drugs"! WTF?!? Does he mean cherry cola and sticky buns? He's the most innocent-looking Man in Pop! I hope he's still going to play V Fest in Baltimore. I was looking forward to seeing them in a festival space.

And before you start, WHATEVER. WE LOVE KEANE. Hopes and Fears is the shit. There's nothing wrong with taking the best bits of Coldplay (spastic piano hook, fey vocals, bombastic chorus), cutting out the lame shit (uncontrollable whining, Jesus complex, Gwyneth Paltrow) and looping in to infinity. Long live Keane, BITCH.

Here's their video for "Is It Any Wonder?", the current Best Pop Song of 2006:

You can also buy an AMAZING remix 12" of "Wonder" from our favorite British record shop, Picadilly Records. Search for "Keane" then scroll down a bit. Believe us, SO WORTH IT.

Also, take a few minutes to read our interview with Tim Keane from the release of Hopes and Fears (and their first NYC show at Knitting Factory! Keepin' it real 2k4 stylee!)
