The Black Keys Release ‘Tour Rehearsal Tapes’ EP of Studio Sessions

Today, The Black Keys released a six-song EP of live studio recordings from December 2011. The songs were recorded from practice session in preparation for their 2011-2012 tour. The 6-song EP, titled Tour Rehearsal Tapes, features four songs from their current album, the multi-platinum El Camino, and two songs from their 2010 Grammy Award-winning album Brothers. The EP is available exclusively on iTunes for the first two weeks.

The Black Keys have been monsters of rock over the last three years. Their 2010 album, Brothers, was certified platinum and garnered the band three Grammy Awards. The band is currently touring on their 2011 follow-up, El Camino, which hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200. At this year’s MTV Movie Awards, the Keys were joined on-stage by actor Johnny Depp for a version of Gold On The Ceiling” after he accepted his MTV Generation Award from Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. In addition to their tour, the band played Firefly Music Festival, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and, most recently, Global Festival in New York City. – by Matt Bishop
