The Black Keys ready to rock the road

on March 29, 2010, 4:15pm

In anticipation of their sixth studio album, Brothers, The Black Keys plan to hit the road this summer. It’s not just any tour, either. It’s a genuine vacation. For one, the duo are slated to open for Pearl Jam at Madison Square Garden. Second, they’ll be partying at both Wanee Music Festival and Bonnaroo. And if that weren’t cool enough, they have two nights set at Minneapolis’ legendary venue, First Avenue. Those later shows with the Morning Benders in New York only add extra flavor and spice. Oy vey, someone get me in a blues-garage band pronto.

For those interested, you can listen to album track “Tighten Up” here. It might help with the wait, considering Brothers won’t hit streets until May 18th (via Nonesuch).
