Song of the Day – Tuesday 5/4/2010 The Black Keys May 4, 2010

Akron, Ohio’s blues-rock duo, The Black Keys, took a couple of years off to pursue solo projects, but now the boys are back together and have realized that absence truly makes the heart grow fonder…After pursuing separate music ventures playing together just felt right as drummer, Patrick Carney states, “the most important thing we learned was how easily we communicate with each other. I think it’s much easier for Dan and I to play with each other than it is for us to work with other people, but we really just started to appreciate it recently.”

The band’s sixth album, Brothers will drop on 5/18/2010 and they will headline at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 9/29/2010.
