New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Black Keys have made history today with their song "Lo/Hi," off the band's upcoming ninth studio album, "Let's Rock". The song tops Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Rock Airplay, and Alternative Songs charts making it the first time any song has reached No. 1 across all four formats at once.

"Let's Rock" is a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney's early days as a band. Auerbach says, "When we're together we are The Black Keys, that's where that real magic is, and always has been since we were sixteen." The second song from the record, "Eagle Birds," debuted along with the album announce; it follows the previously released single "Lo/Hi." The Black Keys' thirty-one city North American tour begins September 23. "Let's Rock" is available for pre-order on all formats here.

"Let's Rock" was written, tracked live, and produced by Auerbach and Carney at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville and features backing vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson. "The record is like a homage to electric guitar," says Carney. "We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to."

The "Let's Rock" Tour will hit cities including Chicago, Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and Austin. Special guests Modest Mouse will provide support on all dates, and Shannon & The Clams, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, *repeat repeat, and Jessy Wilson will each open select shows on the tour. The band also headlines 2019's Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 21.
Rolling Stone named "Lo/Hi" a "Song You Need to Know" and said, "the Keys have officially returned, louder than ever" and the New York Times calls the song "the kind of garage-boogie stomp that the band never left behind."
