Banned from TV...

Keane have unveiled the new video for 'Disconnected' - and promptly found themselves banned from TV.

The new single from Keane probably won't change your life. 'Disconnected' is pleasing enough, and parent album 'Strangeland' - due on May 7th - will no doubt find itself nestling in record collections across the land.

But we're not in love. What really has impressed Clash though, is the new video for 'Disconnected'. Given a première at the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill, the clip is fuelled by a love of classic 70s horror flicks.

Aspects of the cinematography recall the eeriness of Italian horror, while there's a certain naffness which can only recall Hammer or even Christopher Lee's over-the-top stint in 'The Wicker Man'.

Containing plenty of passion, murder and the odd guest appearance from Keane, 'Disconnected' is well worth a watch even if the band have never been your cup of tea.

Shot by acclaimed direction team Juan Antonio Bayona and Sergio G. Sanchez, the clip comes with the following quotes:

Bayona said:
"I feel close to what Keane do, their music is timeless, they do their own thing and I admire that."

Sanchez said:
"I have been a fan for years and they finally let us make a video for them! Everyone can relate to what they do because their music tells a coming of age story."

Tom Chaplin said:
"The video perfectly sums up the imagery that the song conjures up. It is the best video we have made."

Keane are set to release 'Strangeland' on May 7th.
