The Black Keys to take Turn Blue on the road

, Staff

The Black Keys have announced plans to hit the road this summer to promote their brand new album, Turn Blue. The Akron, Ohio-bred rock duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will make their way to Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s TD Garden on Saturday, September 21. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $35 to $85, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Opening the show will be special guests Cage The Elephant.

Turn Blue, The Black Keys’ eighth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s El Camino, was released earlier this week. Co-produced by the band and Danger Mouse, the album was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles during the summer of 2013 with additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville in early 2014. It marks the fourth time the band has collaborated with Danger Mouse, who also shares writing credits on the new album. The video for lead single “Fever” is streaming below.

“We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record — not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either,” explained Carney in a press release. “On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”

Cage The Elephant continue to tour in support of their latest album, 2013’s Melophobia. The band’s third studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Thank You, Happy Birthday, features singles “Come A Little Closer” and “Take It or Leave It”. The Kills’ Alison Mosshart provides guest vocals on “It’s Just Forever”.
