    The Black Keys Announce World Tour of America and Partnership with Save the Music to Support Music Education in Mississippi Hill Country Schools

    The Black Keys have announced their World Tour of America: three intimate shows in Athens, GA, St. Petersburg, FL, and Oxford, MS, this September, surrounding their performance at Pilgrimage Fest in Tennessee. A portion of each set at these intimate shows will consist of songs from the band’s new album, Delta Kream, which features eleven Mississippi hill country blues songs by artists including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough.

    Patrick Carney said of these dates, which the band hopes to make a tradition: “Dan and I have joked about doing a tour of American cities named after other cities in the world since we were touring together in a van. It feels like now is as good a time as any and we are excited to play in some places we haven’t played in since the early days of the band and for fans that have not had a chance to see us in a while.”

    Tickets for these dates will go on sale here this Friday, July 23, at 10am local time. Members of the Lonely Boys and Girls Club will have access to pre-sale tickets.

    The Black Keys have also announced that they will partner with the Save The Music Foundation to support elementary and middle school music programs in Mississippi—starting with Holly Springs. Fans can participate in a sweepstakes to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the band, with 100% of the proceeds going towards music education grants in seven schools across Mississippi. Every Save The Music school commits to having music for at least ten years, and most of the programs last far beyond that. Fans can view sweepstakes details and participate here.

    The band shares about the program: “We’ve teamed up with Save The Music—a national non-profit dedicated to building school music programs—and a group of local Mississippi partners to contribute instruments and teacher support to schools in the Hill Country. The goal is to grow music programs across the state, starting this coming school year with Holly Springs.”

    In a new video, The Black Keys perform "Crawling Kingsnake," the opening track to their new album, Delta Kream, from Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, where the album was recorded. You can watch it here:

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
