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. Auerbach released the critically acclaimed album Waiting on a Song in 2017 and has been busy on tour with his side project the Easy Eye Revue, while Carney has been busy producing for the likes of Tennis, fiance Michelle Branch, and *repeat repeat.
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.
