Black Keys

The Black Keys are releasing their new album El Camino via Nonesuch on 12/5 and will play a NYC show at a TBA venue on that same day. Stay tuned for more details and for the chance to win a pair of guaranteed entry tickets to the show (it might be free) right here on BrooklynVegan.

Meanwhile you can catch The Black Keys on Saturday Night Live this weekend (12/3) along with host Steve Buscemi, and you can stream five new songs at the band's site. They're also hitting Colbert (12/6) and Letterman (12/7) while in town.

Come on dudes, it's Modern Weepers.

These guys need to release more albums. What the fuck.

Posted by Anonymous | November 29, 2011 6:36 PM

Is Kasabian really playing T5? I know they were planning a spring tour. I really was hoping for a different venue. Ugh. And no, please do not compare them to being a hyped band. The new LP is incredible.

Agreed on new Kasabian LP is pretty amazing.

I honestly did not know anyone in the U.S. gave a shit about Kasabian until reading this thread

Posted by Anonymous | November 29, 2011 9:02 PM

Thought Kasabian were one of those British-exclusive bands. You know, the ones that play arenas in the UK but never tour here.

Posted by Anonymous | November 29, 2011 9:05 PM

I blame the NME for all of those type bands.

NME = enemy

"Thought Kasabian were one of those British-exclusive bands. You know, the ones that play arenas in the UK but never tour here."

Yeah, and they tour and tour for decades over in Europe. Great food, hot women, enthusiastic audiences - what's the downside? Not making it in America? Who fucking cares!

I still have never met anyone who is from the U.S. (not a transplant of England) who listens to Kasabian. How does that band play other cities in the U.S. besides New York and Los Angeles?

Free show at webster hall

I'm American and Kasabian fucking rocks man. The new album is a wonderful listen. Dan The Automator is a great producer.

@patrickcarney: 12/5 Release Show is @WebsterHall & streams on @MTVHive. NYC fans your tix are already paid for. How to get em coming soon.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 10:13 AM

ugh, that sounds super annoying

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 10:28 AM

wonder how they're going to do this? line up in person to get them?

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 10:30 AM

I bet everyone will have to RSVP on an MTV website just so they can get your e-mail address, then make it first come first serve and not even check RSVP confirmations.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 10:34 AM

@1034 probably true. this sounds like one of those vice shows in the making, ugh.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 11:01 AM

if mtv has a major stake in this you know it's going to suck balls

Kasabian blow the shit outta Black Keys.

@1127 ya for money.

i find nothing compelling about kasabian, the uk can keep 'em

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 11:42 AM

As someone who works and makes money, I really hope this isn't a first come, first serve type deal. I just....don't have the time to stand in line all day with total losers.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 1:51 PM

Lame. Why don't they just do another Zales commercial and call it a day?

Posted by Lauren | November 30, 2011 2:13 PM

2:13 or another VS commercial. Or Honda commercial. Or Mazda commercial. Or ______ commercial (see Black Keys vs. Vampire Weekend Sell-out Off on the Daily Show)

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 2:27 PM

God, this band has gotten so annoying. The music is still decent, but I'm convinced these guys will sell songs to anyone or do any kind of cheesy corporate show they're offered.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 2:32 PM

2:32, in the age of downloading music, expect to see more of this. People gotta make $ somehow and it's not like bands can create music for free and travel across the country without incurring costs along the way.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 2:53 PM

The new album kinda blows. I really liked Brothers, but this one just seems lazy.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 3:10 PM

Why do ppl hate on musicians who are actually interested in making a living. No one buys music anymore. I'd play anywhere for some cash, been doing it for free all my life

If black keys were a hummus brand, I would say they are probably Sabra's gluten free garlic blend.

Posted by Anonymous | November 30, 2011 3:16 PM

2:53 bands pretty much never made serious $ off selling albums/singles. money was always made through touring. look it up.

I saw Kasabian in Ibiza. I rolling balls on molly and dancing with some sexy london ladies. It was amazing. I had never heard of them before that night. Obviously I'm still a fan.

I ate hummus in Lebanon. I was starving and dining with some sexy lebanese ladies. It was amazing. I had never ate hummus before that night. Obviously I'm still a fan.
