The Black Keys announced earlier this morning that the band is going back out on the road for a string of 31 dates across North America later this year. Lucky for us, one of those dates includes a stop in the Bay Area on 11/20, although no word on the exact venue yet.

The “Let’s Rock Tour” also features special guests Modest Mouse and support from Oakland-based Shannon and the Clams, who’s fifth record Onion was released earlier this year on Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Records.

Earlier this week The Black Keys  released the new single “Hi/Lo”, their first new music since their 2014 album Turn Blue. While it’s been five years since Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have released new music,or toured together, they have both been busy in the meantime.

Check out their latest single Hi/Lo below and a special performance from Dan Auerbach when he stopped by our station for a KFOG Studio Session last year.
