The Black Keys will support their upcoming album, Ohio Players, on a fall North American tour with opening act the Head & the Heart. The trek begins Sept. 17 in Tulsa, Ok., and concludes Nov. 12 in Detroit, not far from the duo’s Akron, Oh., hometown. Click here for ticket details.

Due Friday (April 5) from Nonesuch, Ohio Players was produced by the Black Keys with assistance from Dan the Automator and Greg Kurstin. Guest artists include Beck, Noel Gallagher, Juicy J, Leon Michels, Durand Jones vocalist/drummer Aaron Frazer and Lil Noid. It’s the follow-up to 2022’s Dropout Boogie, which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200.

The duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will first hit the road in Europe, beginning April 27 in Manchester, England. The Keys will also play a special NASCAR event dubbed the Chicago Street Race in the Windy City on July 6.

Ahead of Ohio Players, a new documentary on the band, This Is a Film About the Black Keys, premiered last month at the South by Southwest Film Festival. It was directed by Jeff Dupre, best known for his 2012 film Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present.
