The Black Keys will support their highly anticipated new album, Brothers — due out May 18 on Nonesuch Records with a summer tour beginning June 2 in Salt Lake City. The tour will include a newly added second show at Central Park's SummerStage on July 28 that follows the band's July 27 performance, which quickly sold out. Presale tickets for the tour dates will go on sale Tuesday, March 30. Those who purchase presale tickets through the band's website will receive a special bundle, which includes a copy of Brothers upon release (either digital only or digital and physical — CD or vinyl). Additionally, presale tickets will come with an instant download of two tracks from Brothers — "Tighten Up" and "Next Girl." The Black Keys will also be playing select dates in April and May, highlighted by an opening slot for Pearl Jam at Madison Square Garden on May 20, as well as performances on the Late Show with David Letterman on May 25 and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on May 26. Please see below for tour dates.

Brothers arrives on the heels of three other acclaimed projects the band released in the past year: Dan Auerbach's solo effort, Keep It Hid, the debut LP from Patrick Carney's band Drummer, and Blakroc, a collaboration between The Black Keys and renowned MCs including RZA, Mos Def, Q-Tip, and Raekwon.

The new album includes the Danger Mouse - produced song "Tighten Up" (streaming now on the band's MySpace: myspace.com/theblackkeys and a cover of the Jerry Butler classic "Never Gonna Give You Up." The remaining songs on Brothers are written, performed and produced by The Black Keys. Carney admits Brothers is the album they've always wanted to make and taps into their creative force as a duo. "Dan and I grew up a lot as individuals and musicians prior to making this album. Our relationship was tested in many ways but at the end of the day, we're brothers, and I think these songs reflect that."
