The Black Keys History
Part of the wave of blues-rock revivalists that emerged throughout the 00s, prolific Ohio duo The Black Keys are widely regarded as one of the best live acts on the alternative scene. Guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney first began jamming together in the neighbourhood of Akron in 1996 but didn’t officially form the group until 2001 when they secured a deal with small indie label Alive with a home-recorded six-song demo. A year later they released their debut album, The Big Come Up, and The Black Keys tickets for their first ever live show at Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom & Tavern. Voted Time Magazine’s 3rd best album of 2003, sophomore Thickfreakness was promoted with a first festival appearance at SXSW and support slots on Sleater-Kinney and Beck’s North American tours. In an effort to boost their profile, the pair began licensing their music to various commercials, TV shows and video games, whilst following sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, they released 2004’s Rubber Factory, a live album recorded at Sydney’s The Metro Theatre and a E.P. featuring covers of Junior Kimbrough songs. Their first album composed entirely of original material, Magic Potion, arrived in 2006, whilst The Black Keys tickets then went on sale for their largest ever headline tour. After contributing to the soundtracks of I’m Not There and The Hottest State, the duo recruited an outside producer, Danger Mouse, for the first time on 2008’s commercial breakthrough Attack & Release, a No.14 Billboard hit. Following appearances at a benefit concert for Barack Obama in their hometown and a European tour alongside Neil Finn, the duo concentrated on various side-projects with Auerbach releasing the solo album, Keep It Hid, and Carney forming the indie band, Drummer. The band reconvened in 2009 with Blakroc, a collaborative album with various hip-hop artists, before 2010’s Brothers earned them three Grammy Awards including Best Alternative Music Album, their first US Hot 100 entry with “Tighten Up” and an MTV Video Music Award for Breakthrough Video. 2011’s El Camino consolidated their success, peaking at No.2, spawning the hit single, “Lonely Boy,” and allowing the pair to embark on their first ever arena tour with The Black Keys tickets for their date at Madison Square Garden selling out in just 15 minutes.
