    British rock band Keane are going hiatus to allow the members to work on other projects.

    The band has been together for 16 years. But no, Keane are not breaking up.

    Rumors in Keane's native U.K. suggested that the band would be splitting so frontman Tom Chaplin could focus on his solo career but a rep for the band shot those rumors to hell, saying Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes and Jesse Quin will be taking some time off after the release of their upcoming greatest hits album.

    "Keane are taking a break after the Best Of to pursue their own projects," the rep said.

    Fair enough.

    That best of is out next month.

    Will you miss Keane while they take a break (not a breakup)?
