New Single:

The Black Keys return today with their song “Lo/Hi” (Nonesuch Records), the first new music from the band since their 2014 album, Turn Blue.

“Lo/Hi” was written and produced by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, and recorded at Nashville’s Easy Eye Sound studio.

Formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001, The Black Keys have released eight studio albums: their debut The Big Come Up (2002), followed by Thickfreakness (2003) and Rubber Factory (2004), along with their releases on Nonesuch Records, Magic Potion (2006), Attack & Release (2008), Brothers (2010), El Camino (2011), and, most recently, Turn Blue (2014). The band has won six Grammy Awards and headlined festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball.

Since their last album together, both Auerbach and Carney have been creative forces behind a number of wide-ranging artists:

Dan Auerbach formed the Easy Eye Sound record label, named after his Nashville studio, in 2017, with the release of his second solo album, Waiting on a Song.  Since its launch, Easy Eye Sound has become home to a wide range of artists including Yola, Shannon & The Clams, Dee White, Shannon Shaw, Sonny Smith, Robert Finley, and The Gibson Brothers; it also has released the posthumous album by Leo Bud Welch as well as previously unreleased material by Link Wray.

Patrick Carney has produced and recorded new music with artists such as Calvin Johnson, Michelle Branch, Damns of the West, Tobias Jesso, Jr., Jessy Wilson, Tennis, Repeat Repeat, Wild Belle, Sad Planets, Turbo Fruits, and more.  He also created the theme music for the Netflix TV show BoJack Horseman with his late uncle, Ralph Carney.

AGT Stars We Three  Share New Video
“Lifeline” ++ US National Tour Underway Now ++

Press Release: March 8th 2019, (New York, NY) — Pop/rock sibling-trio and America’s Got Talent semi-finalists, We Three, have released a new video for their song “Lifeline”. The heartfelt, uplifting track is truly brought to life through the collaboration of We Three and director Derich Hartfell.

The video features siblings Joshua (piano/drums), Bethany (bass), and Manny (guitar) in a winter rainstorm in their hometown of McMinnville, Oregon, and brings the song’s soul-searching core to life in stark terms.

The trio discussed the filming process, explaining that they decided to shoot in the rain without any special effects to prove that “despite all the elements working against us…we can get through it all by not dressing it up and telling it like it is.” It’s an emotionally raw production and the perfect medium to deliver the song’s message that “no matter how tired and tested, we can all come through and be real.”

The release of this video for “Lifeline” accompanies the beginning of We Three’s debut-headlining national tour under the same name. The band announced The “Lifeline” Tour last month in an exclusive with Billboard.

As Bethany Blanchard told Taylor Weatherby at Billboard: “To do this tour is literally a dream come true. It’s what we have always wanted, and for us to be able to actually meet our fans and share our very special show is so exciting.”

The tour will feature a one-of-a-kind augmented reality poster, developed by world-renowned IT-artist and creator of AR.Gallery, Jonmar. All posters will be encrypted with a QR code that when scanned with a smartphone through the AR.Gallery App (available in Apple App Store and Google Play Store, or via a link on the band’s website) will bring the poster to life and transport the viewer into We Three’s “alternate world”, where the band will be in conversation about their tour and offering the sounds of exclusive unreleased music.

Through all 34 dates, We Three will be showcasing music from their debut album, We Three (2018). Comprised of 12 original songs, four of which were performed during their successful run on NBC’s hit show, America’s Got Talent, the album enjoys tens of millions of streams on all platforms. Be sure to find tour dates near you!
