The Black Keys’ “Little Black Submarines” Video

The Black Keys have just added a second London date to their recently announced December tour of the UK, now closing out the run with shows at the O2 Arena December 12 and 13. For additional details on these and other upcoming shows, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

As for their new video, this is what they had to say:

“We all just sort of kind of mutually agreed that it should probably just be the performance and not any of the other extra stuff,” Auerbach tells Rolling Stone. “Luckily we had live footage so we turned it into a live video. We just sort of said ‘You know, it was fun kind of performing here at a small club with the fans. Why don’t we just have it be that?'”
