Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, the duo known as The Black Keys, return this week with their seventh full-length album El Camino. The band would have been forgiven for taking an extended break after last year's world-beater of an album in Brothers. Instead, they're striking while that iron is hot, and like 2008's Attack & Release teaming with Danger Mouse on the new collection.
They made their second (!) Saturday Night Live appearance of 2011 this weekend, performing lead single "Lonely Boy" along with album track "Gold On the Ceiling."
Their television blitz continues this week, oh by the way, with appearances on both Colbert and Letterman. In case you missed it earlier, the band's offering a 5-song preview of El Camino for the price of an email here.
