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 two 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.

Once again tapping Danger Mouse to produce the follow-up, the band went back into the studio in summer 2013 to record. Standing in contrast to the short, spiky rock & roll of El Camino, Turn Blue had a psychedelic undercurrent that could be heard on its preceding singles "Fever" and "Turn Blue." The album appeared early in May 2014. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of you life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on five songs in 143 min. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come of the screen in big letters

I can't wait to see them!!! ❤❤❤
absolutely great ��
The Black Keys! love them
Love their music, the only word I can use to describe it is.... Perfect!!!
Love their early stuff... And their newer stuff... And all their stuff
@farse123, the keys are good and all, but there is still a plethora of really really great music out there. You just have to search for it a little. Thats why pandora is so great. It has turned me onto to so many bands that i would otherwise have never in a million years heard of. Some of them are very unknown, never made it, and already broken up. But their music lives on.
The black keys have Rocky touched my soul in a way few bands have. As a almost 30 dude their are few things I Devine as qualities in a man, but the love of this fat duo is an easy way t make a quick friend of mine. I'm no crazy worshipper but when people look back to the 2000s I can only hope the keys are a noted reflection of a time passed,calm, s m a r t , a n d polished. Thank you for keeping music alive to many an old listener but first time caller nerd like myself.
I think the white stripes and the black keys are extremely awsome, but I think the white stripes are a little better
swinkle100
why do they compare/cont r a s t them to the white stripes in their bio? theyre both two rad bands idgi
whoa what a great way to say they are better i love the support you used @casiocat25
The Black Keys > The White Stripes
they need to change this bio they got everything from the white stripes how dare they say they have rougher rock that never surfaced in the stripes. Change this garbage now the white stripes are more raw and rock harder than the black keys ever will
Gives me hope the hard guts rock will never die
This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy an paste this on ten comments in ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break the chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.
