New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Congratulations to The Black Keys, whose ninth studio album, "Let's Rock," debuted at No. 1 on the US Top Current Album Chart, and No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album was released on June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records. As explained in a recent New York Times profile, the band decided not to participate in the current music-business practice of bundling its album with ticket sales. The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney says: "We decided to avoid ticket bundling like we always have. To us, it feels like a gimmick. It exists solely as a way to game the charts and we want no part of that." The album is also No. 1 in the following categories: Top Current Rock Albums, Current Alternative Album, Current Digital Albums, LP Vinyl Album, and Top Internet. Internationally, "Let's Rock" is the band's third consecutive top 10 album in the UK, debuting at No. 3, as well as top 10 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland, among others.

"Let's Rock," a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney's early days as a band, 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 "Let's Rock" Tour will hit major cities this fall; for details and tickets, see below. 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.
