    The Black Keys Featured on NPR's "Fresh Air"
    John Peets

    The Black Keys will be the guests on today's episode of NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Band mates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will discuss their musical influences, their music, and the monumental year that has followed their latest Nonesuch release, 2010's Brothers. The album is nominated in six categories at next month's Grammy Awards and garnered the band a Gold record. Auerbach and Carney also give some insight into their recent, hilarious appearance with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig on the Colbert Report. Tune in on NPR stations across the US today to hear The Black Keys on Fresh Air and listen online this evening at npr.org.

    To pick up a copy of Brothers on vinyl and CD and receive high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store.

    The band recently made its Austin City Limits debut with the broadcast of their October 2010 performance on PBS earlier this month. You can watch the complete episode, including an opening performance by Sonic Youth, at video.pbs.org.

    Up next on The Black Keys' tour schedule are two sold-out shows at The Chelsea in Las Vegas. The band is also due to perform at the sold-out Coachella festival in Indio, California, in April. For more information on these and other upcoming shows, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rolling Stone placed Carney at No. 3 among the 50 Top Tweeters in Music, saying he "keeps the good times rolling with irreverent non-sequiturs." Read more at rollingstone.com, then find out for yourself by following him at twitter.com/patrickcarney.
