Black Keys announce first tour in four years


Black Keys are hitting the road for the first time in four years as they prepare to release a string of new material.

The band, who have just released their latest single ‘Lo/Hi’, will tour for three months later this year.

Since the release of Black Keys’ last studio LP Turn Blue which was released in 2014, the bands’ frontman Dan Auerbach has been off releasing solo material along with albums with his side project The Arcs.

On top of that, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney has been busy in the studio and recently produced Calvin Johnson’s new album A Wonderful Beast.

Now though, all attentions are back on the band, ending their self-inflicted hiatus with the release of ‘Lo/Hi’. According to a press release, the new song was written and produced by Auerbach and Carney and recorded at the Carney’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee.
