Formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001, The Black Keys are singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. They have been called ‘rock royalty’ by the Associated Press and ‘one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet’ by Uncut. Cutting their teeth playing small clubs, the band has gone on to sell out arena tours and has released 11 studio albums: its debut The Big Come Up (2002), followed by Thickfreakness (2003) and Rubber Factory (2004), along with their releases on Nonesuch Records, Magic Potion (2006), Attack & Release (2008), Brothers (2010), El Camino (2011), Turn Blue (2014), “Let’s Rock” (2019), Delta Kream (2021) and Dropout Boogie (2022). The band has won six Grammy Awards and a BRIT, among other worldwide accolades, and headlined festivals in North America, South America, Mexico, Australia, and Europe.

This year, the duo received two more Grammy nominations, bringing their career total to sixteen, this time for Best Rock Album for Dropout Boogie, and Best Rock Performance for the single ‘Wild Child’, one of the biggest hits of their career to date. On release, Dropout Boogie was the band’s sixth consecutive top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 in the US, its fifth consecutive top 10 album in the UK, as well as top 20 in Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. An Album of the Year in Mojo and Uncut amongst others, Rolling Stone called it ‘Some of the stickiest alt-boogie of their career,’ while Classic Rock proclaimed, ‘Exhilarating. Rock‘n’roll in 2022 doesn’t get any better than this.’ In the words of the NME, ‘This pair are masters in capturing that timeless flair and spirit. They’re the embodiment of a band set for good times.’
