The Black Keys announce new North American arena tour dates

See also

Just in time before The Black Keys' eighth album Turn Blue is set to drop in stores on May 13 on Nonesuch Records, a slew of new tour dates have been announced. This will mark the biggest shows The Black Keys have consecutively played in North America.

Turn Blue is currently available to stream in full on iTunes Radio, but if it's pre-ordered on iTunes, an instant download of new tracks "Fever" and "Turn Blue" will be available. Turn Blue is the duo's first album since 2011's El Camino, and the third album produced by Danger Mouse of Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells fame.

A music video for "Fever" just premiered on YouTube last week, which features the duo poking fun at televangelists specials with snippets of old clips from churchgoers.

Check out all of the North American tour dates below.
