The Black Keys: 'There's Probably People That Just Want Us to F--k It All Up'
The Black Keys have said that they don't see themselves as "underdogs" any more, adding that success has made them a target for criticism, NME reports.

Speaking to Mojo, the band say they believe people are now expecting them to "f--k up" because it took them years to make it big.

"I don't view is as underdogs any more," Patrick Carney said. "In fact, I view us as more of a target now."

He added: "I think there's probably people that just want us to f--k it all up. It’s inevitable that you f--k it up somehow. It makes more sense to the universe if we f--k up, d'you know what I mean?"

The duo will release their eighth album, "Turn Blue," the follow-up 2011's "El Camino" on May 12.

"Turn Blue" was produced by Danger Mouse alongside Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney and recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood last summer as well as at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan at the start of 2013.
