Akron Rockers Turn It Up

by | Mar 24, 2008

What’s The Wall Street Journal doing in Akron? Checking the air in Firestone’s tires? Negative. The venerable business newspaper is checking in with Pat and Dan of The Black Keys. The band has a new album coming out on April 1, and the Journal’s multimedia feature is part of the advance hype. Attack & Release was produced by Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse, and will be released on Nonesuch, a Warner Bros. imprint. In other words, it’s a big deal for this two-piece blues band, known for its stripped down low-fi recordings and kickin’ live show.
