Keane have announced a tour of forests for next summer to coincide with a new eight-track EP release.

The Night Train EP will be released on May 8 and features the band’s collaboration with Somali/Canadian rapper K’Naan as well as a track that features Japanese MC Tigarah. Pianist Tim Rice-Oxley also takes a rare lead vocal on one of the songs. To say it sounds like a departure from their usual safe sound is something of an understatement.

Following the EP release the band will head off on a tour of England’s forests, including a near-homecoming show at Bedgebury Pinetum.

Those forest dates in full:

JUNE
10 Thetford Forest, Suffolk
11 Bedgebury Pinetum, Kent
18 Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire
19 Sherwood Pines Forest, Nottinghamshire
25 Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire
26 Cannock Chase Forest, Staffordshire

Tickets will be £32 and are available from Wednesday (December 2) from the band’s website, www.keanemusic.com.
