The Black Keys and The Flaming Lips will hit the road together for a short joint tour this Spring.
The two festival favorites meet up on April 28th in Kansas City and keep the rock n' roll hysteria going through May 3rd. No word on whether or not Patrick Carney plans to steal Wayne Coyne's laser gloves, but we're sure security is pretty tight around them these days. Consult both bands' full itineraries below.
Also, The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach recently discussed the band's follow-up to 2011′s "El Camino" with Mojo, stating: "We're going to start making the new album in the second week of January and we're hoping to have it done by some time in March." He also added, "The record isn't written yet, we'll do it when we get into the studio. This is when we both work best, when we're dying to make an album. All of our records take place in the studio, in that we make stuff up while we're there."
