Director Noah Abrams has been travelling around with The Black Keys for around a year, filming a documentary he has described as a ‘buddy movie’. Abrams will be travelling with the band for another 3 or 4 months before hitting the editing studio with an aim to release the film in time for the 2013 fun of film festivals.
Speaking with Spin about the Doco, Abrams said:
“It’ll be a buddy movie with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time…A lot of music documentaries spend too much time trying to make people cool. I’m fortunate enough to know these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny…We’ve gotten some amazing footage so far. For as big as these guys are now, they’re still two guys from Akron. The comedy is usually endless with these two.”
The Black Keys will tour Australia later in the year during October, playing shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Newcastle.
