Garage rock's favorite pair of lonely boys are making some noise this week with a new song and a massive tour after a nearly five-year hiatus.

The Black Keys released "Lo/Hi" last week, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney's first single since the 2014's Turn Blue and is full of fuzz, handclaps, foot stomping, and gives us hella "Lazaretto" vibes.

With new music comes a 31-date North American arena tour which pairs the Akron, Ohio overlords with "Float On" indie-rockers, Modest Mouse. The "Let's Rock" tour (yes, that's what it's actually called,) will bring the bands to Little Caesars Arena on Saturday, October 5.

Tickets ($39.50+) go on sale starting Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
