Island UK/Interscope Victorious In Battle For Keane





Hotly-tipped English trio Keane have finally found a home after a fierce bidding war. Music Week is reporting that the boys from Battle, East Sussex, whose reviews you have seen often on the Tripwire, and who played two packed showcase gigs in NYC and LA last month, have inked a two-record deal with Island in the UK and Interscope in the States. Famed A&R man Ferdy Unger-Hamilton, the man behind the Go! Beat imprint (previous home to Portishead and David Holmes), brought them onboard, the first signings to Go! Beat since they jumped ship to Island. Keane's next single will be "This Is The Last Time" on the excellent Fierce Panda label, due out October 13, before moving over to the Universal umbrella.
