The Black Keys

It’s too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities -- their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they’re guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos -- but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes. But that’s not to say that the Black Keys are blues traditionalists: even on their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, they covered the Beatles’ psychedelic classic “She Said She Said,” indicating a fascination with sound and texture that would later take hold on such latter-day albums as 2008’s Attack & Release, where guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney teamed up with sonic architect Danger Mouse. In between those two records, the duo established the Black Keys as a rock & roll band with a brutal, primal force, and songwriters of considerable depth, as evidenced on such fine albums as 2003’s Thickfreakness and 2004’s Rubber Factory.

Natives of Akron, Ohio, the Black Keys released their debut, The Big Come Up, in 2002, receiving strong reviews and sales, and leading to a contract with Fat Possum by the end of the year. That label released Thickfreakness, recorded in a 14-hour session, in the spring of 2003, and the Keys supported the album with an opening tour for Sleater-Kinney. The Black Keys' momentum escalated considerably with their 2004 album Rubber Factory, which not only received strong reviews but some high-profile play, including a video for “10 A.M. Automatic” featuring comedian David Cross. The band's highly touted live act was documented on a 2005 DVD, released the same year as Chulahoma -- an EP of blues covers -- appeared.

The Black Keys made the leap to the major labels with 2006's Magic Potion, a moodier record that continued to build their fan base. The band capitalized on that moodiness with 2008's Attack & Release, whose production by Danger Mouse signaled that the Black Keys were hardly just blues-rock purists. Salvaged from sessions intended as a duet album with Ike Turner, who died before the record could be finished, the album was the Black Keys' biggest to date, debuting in the Billboard Top 15 and earning strong reviews. Following their second live DVD, the Black Keys spent 2009 on side projects, with Auerbach releasing his solo album Keep It Hid in the beginning of the year, and Carney forming the band Drummer, in which he played bass. At the end of 2009, Blakroc, a rap-rock collaboration between the band and producer Damon Dash, appeared.

Brothers, released in 2010, became their biggest album yet, generating the hit singles "Tighten Up," "Howlin' for You" and "Next Girl." It also saw the Keys returning to their tough blues roots with a new grandness, earning three Grammy Awards, landing on year-end lists from NPR to Rolling Stone, and going gold. The band offered a more straight-ahead rock & roll sound with 2011's El Camino. On the strength of the hit single "Lonely Boy," El Camino debuted at number 2 on Billboard's Top 200 and the Black Keys worked the album hard throughout the next year, releasing "Gold on the Ceiling" as the record's second single and touring heavily. In the fall of 2012, the Tour Rehearsal Tapes EP -- a brief collection of live-in-the-studio run-throughs of 2012 material -- was released. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Haven't been excited about a song as much as Lonely Boy in the last 10 to 15 years. Didn't think I'd ever get that feeling again. Thanks Black Keys.
Listen to dexter romwebber... . t h a t s where the keys and white came from.....fla t duo jets are the real deal
The Black Keys and The White Stripes/Jack White are completely two different bands. Both are two of my modern day favorites. Personally though, I think Jack White is better creatively and it really shows on Blunderbuss.
I just heard the new single from their upcoming new album...I could be wrong but I don't think there's any guitar in it...for real ...subpar at best from a band as good as the Keys
Dont read this because.... oooo ... im skyerd!..... dont whack me with your BS wand
Tighten Up is the first song I heard by The Black Keys, and it's still my favorite!
Guys, guys, they both are amazing. Neither copied either. They are unique in a similar way. Jeez.

I have been listening to this band forever and I don't know why everyone is criticizing Turn Blue; Fever was an amazing track not their usual hard hitting rock/ blues sound but it's always good for a band to freshen up a bit. For example look at Arctic Monkeys I been with them from the beginning and now everyone hates Alex's new look and the new sound but as being a long time fan I think is good for them and look at what they have done winning so many awards right now. It's just all the people h
Follow me and I will follow you back!

Psyched for Turn Blue coming out in May, 2014. They've already released Fever, which will be one of their songs on the upcoming album.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.

When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Idk about the new album Turn Blue. I've listened to the single Fever and was not impressed. I know that over the years bands change but I would like to hear some more of that raw filthy blues from these guys.
