Just in time for their impending Australian tour later this month, The Black Keys have released a handy little gift for fans to warm up for the shows.
They’ve released a six-track EP via iTunes called The Tour Rehearsal Tapes EP. It’s pretty much what it says on the tin: six tracks recorded live in the studio back in December 2011, as the band prepared to go on tour the following year.
Artist Direct reports that the EP features four songs from latest album El Camino and two songs from the 2010 album Brothers. This includes commercial hits Gold on the Ceiling and Lonely Boy, which was No.2 on last year’s triple j Hottest 100.
Apparently, the EP is available exclusively on iTunes for the first two weeks. Click here to check it out and order your copy.
The Black Keys will be in Australia this month to play shows in all the major cities, and in Newcastle as well. Limited tickets are available for some of the shows – click here for all the details.
