Watch the Black Keys Bring 'Turn Blue' to 'SNL'

Nashville-via-Akron duo gets serious, plays "Fever" and "Bullet in the Brain"

Last night the Nashville-based garage rockers in the Black Keys took some rare time in the run up to their eighth studio album to play some tunes on Saturday Night Live. They've been pretty busy as of late prank calling record labels and beefing with Justin Bieber, but last night they brought two of the early singles from Turn Blue to 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Charlize Theron hosted the night's proceedings, and though the duo's humor has been on display recently, they didn't appear in any skits alongside her (aside from those uncomfortably funny promo videos). Watch the performance of "Fever" above and "Bullet in the Brain" below. Turn Blue drops in proper on May 13.
