Keane have announced that reports of a split that circulated in the past few days are not true.
In news that shocked and interested precisely nobody, The Sun on Sunday reported that the perpetual wet blankets would be going their separate ways after the November release of their greatest hits compilation, The Best of Keane.
However, frontman Tom Chaplin told Real Radio Yorkshire that the rumours are false.
"This is something that has been twisted by one particular article in one particular newspaper over the weekend," he said. Chaplin went on to reassure fans the East Sussex four piece would simply be taking a hiatus: "We'd like to take a bit of time out from being Keane."

During the said hiatus, Chaplin will reportedly be working on solo material, whilst keyboardist Tim Rice-Oxley will work with other artists.
It was reported last week that singer Lily Allen will allegedly be covering Keane's Magic FM hit 'Somewhere Only We Know' that bought them commercial success in 2004. Allen, who is in the stages of making her own musical comeback, is said to be recording a version of the track for the infamous tear-provoking John Lewis Christmas adverts.
