Ahead of their triumphant comeback, Keane have attacked the UK Top 40 Charts saying that there really isn't much to get excited about anymore. Talking to the UK's Daily Star, front man Tom Chaplin ranted "The charts are in a sorry state. It's all just noise to me."
Continuing, the front man of the soft rockers said that he rarely paid attention to what was currently popular anymore, saying "I put on MTV occasionally and it's just a racket. It bores me. Fake pop has taken over, terrible Europop and sh*t R&B that makes me think: 'What's going on? Didn't this rubbish sound tired in the Nineties, let alone now?'"
However it wasn't all bad news in his eyes, with the portly vocalist commenting "There's loads of great stuff out there now which hasn't a hope of making the Top 40. There's an exciting world underneath the charts but the Top 40 is so disappointing these days." As for Keane themselves, Chaplin said that they were at their most honest yet as they ready their new album 'Strangeland.' He said: "The real me didn't come across. I was scared of saying the wrong thing. There's only so much we can do to change people's views. If someone is venting spleen, they have probably got their own sh*t going on."
