It looks as though the Black Keys will get their case heard in court. The group filed legal action earlier this year against both Pizza Hut and Home Depot, claiming that both companies had used their songs without permission in commercials.
Foo Fighters and the Black Keys are among the acts who will be playing the Global Festival on Sept. 29 in New York City's Central Park. The two rock groups will be joined by Band of Horses, K'naan and classic rock legend Neil Young at the massive concert, which aims to help spread awareness and raise funds for the global epidemic of poverty.
After years of holding out, the Black Keys finally saw the benefits of commercial usage when their single 'Tighten Up' blew up after being featured in a number of TV ads. But just because they said okay once before does not mean it's a free-for-all, and the group is now taking legal action on both Home Depot and Pizza Hut.
If there's one thing to say about the Black Keys' Patrick Carney, he doesn't pull punches when talking about other bands. In a new interview, the ever-candid drummer gives an outline for the Akron, Ohio, duo's next album and slams "reunion tours" that have missing pieces, specifically Black Sabbath and Van Halen.
The Black Keys may have a harder time these days finding time to shoot music videos, so they did the next best thing. The used a secret show in Nashville Wednesday night as the backdrop for their upcoming clip for 'Little Black Submarines.'
The Black Keys were joined by a special guest for their performance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, as Johnny Depp traded guitar licks with frontman Dan Auerbach on 'Gold On the Ceiling' and 'Lonely Boy.'
What do you get when you put Akron's hippest indie blues rock duo together with the director of 'Trash Humpers'? The Black Keys and Harmony Korine are glad you asked, because they've just debuted the new, Korine-directed clip for the Keys' latest single, 'Gold on the Ceiling.'
