The Black Keys

Here’s another early booking for next year’s gig-going calendar, then. Roots-rock twosome The Black Keys are to head out on a run of UK dates come February 2012, thus doing a little promotional plugging of an untitled seventh LP that’s due out towards the end of this year.

The duo are also set to reprise their 2009 ‘Blakroc’ collaboration with hip hop mogul Damon Dash, working with such rap types as Wiz Khalifa, Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica and Curren$y on a forthcoming sequel LP. Check out the Keys cultivating some hazy in-studio vibes in the below preview trailer.

Now, those distant-seeming tour dates:

3 Feb: Nottingham, Capital FM Arena
4 Feb: Edinburgh, Corn Exchange
6 Feb: Manchester, Apollo
10 Feb: London, Alexandra Palace
