James Righton of Klaxons has said that his recent marriage to Pirates Of The Carribbean actress Keira Knightley will not alter the public perception of the band.

Klaxons are set to return with new music in 2013 having recorded their third studio album with Tom Rowlands of Chemical Brothers and Erol Alkan. Asked by NME if they think that Righton's recent nuptials with Knightley, and the subsequent media coverage of the ceremony, will affect the way people view Klaxons the keyboard player said, "I just fell in love with someone who happens to be amazing. We had a beautiful wedding and there was a lot of love. The music is the music. That thing is going to be there because of who she is but I'd say we're a pretty established band."

Meanwhile, Jamie Reynolds spoke about the wedding itself, saying: "It was the greatest day ever, it was fantastic. We're still high from it. It was about two weeks ago, it was a big party."

Klaxons made their UK festival comeback by headlining day two of The Great Escape over the weekend (May 17). Opening with 'Atlantis To Interzone', the new rave veterans tore through an 11-song set that included five new songs, plus fan favourites 'Golden Skans' and 'Gravity's Rainbow'. Knightley was reportedly supporting her new husband from the crowd.
