Black Keys Grow Tired Of Ivory Ones, Tour For Some Alone Time

White-boy bad ass blues rock duo The Black Keys will drop their third studio album next week in the form of Rubber Factory through Fat Possum/Epitaph. This weekend however, the Akron, Ohio-based outfit will kick off a lengthy fall tour schedule at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival. The domestic leg of their tour jaunt will wrap up with a two night stand in Cleveland, in close proximity to their hometown. Following that, the band will head overseas for shows in the UK, France and Spain. The first single from Rubber Factory will be "10 A.M. Automatic" and, according to Billboard, a video for the track was recently conceived and directed by the hilarious David Cross.
