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.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
