Biography

Mixing the blues with a raucous, soulful, garage rock groove, The Black Keys were heavily compared to White Stripes when the group debuted, before carving out a broader reputation that attracted fans of indie music, classic rock, and blues alike. The band formed In Akron, Ohio, in 2001. Recorded on an eight-track in drummer Patrick Carney's basement and released in 2002, The Black Keys' debut album The Big Come Up introduced the duo as an authentic, lo-fi rock & roll band driven by frontman Dan Auerbach's rootsy, old-time growl. Although the albums Thickfreakness (2003) and Rubber Factory (2004) were well-received by critics, it took the use of The Black Keys' songs in TV shows and films to bring the band to mainstream attention. Their tireless years of touring came to fruition when their fifth studio album, 2008's Attack and Release, went to Number 14 on the US charts, followed by the Number 3 hit Brothers. Their success was capped when they won three awards at the 2011 Grammy ceremony.

Following the release of their seventh studio album, El Camino, in 2011, the duo embarked on their first headlining arena tour, playing shows across Europe and North America. They then began a five-year hiatus following the release of their eighth studio album, Turn Blue, to work on separate projects. They returned in 2019 with the single "Lo/Hi" before releasing their ninth studio album, Let's Rock, later in the year. Two years later, the longtime blues fanatics released Delta Kream, a covers album featuring the band's versions of hill country blues songs.
