Watch: The Black Keys' "Gold on the Ceiling" Video
Monday's MTV video premiere was followed by an exclusive interview with MTV News' James Montgomery. Following the on-air portion, band mates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney stay on for an additional 30-minute interview on MTV.com to discuss their passage from humble beginnings to selling out Madison Square Garden and answer fan-submitted questions. Check out the online coverage, in which the band discusses their "absolutely insane" year and much more at mtv.com.
"Gold on the Ceiling" is the second single from The Black Keys' new album, El Camino, released December 6 on Nonesuch Records, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and has already been certified RIAA Gold. Earlier this year, the duo was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine for the first time. In celebration of the album's release, the band, which is currently on tour in Europe, will embark on the first leg of their North American tour this March, featuring sold-out shows at Chicago's United Center, DC's Verizon Center, and two nights at New York's Madison Square Garden followed by a second batch of April dates, including shows at Austin's Frank Erwin Center and Seattle's Key Arena.
