The Black Keys will continue their support of last year’s Let’s Rock with a 35-city tour of North America this summer.

They’ll begin July 7 at the White River Amphitheatre in Seattle and conclude Sept. 6 at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Fla. Each show will feature three acts, with Jessy Wilson, the Marcus King Band and Yola serving as the opening artists on select dates; Gary Clark Jr. will be second on the bill at all shows, with the exception of July 10, when Allah-Las will perform.

You can see the dates below and get full ticketing details at their website.

Let’s Rock, the Black Keys’ ninth album, was their return after a five-year hiatus, during which time Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney worked on solo and outside projects. “The record is like a homage to electric guitar,” Carney said. “We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.”

“It’s this magic that happens with Pat and I,” Auerbach added. “It was the same thing that happened when we were 16 and started playing, and magically, it just sounds like music. It was really awesome, having the break and then coming back and just playing with Pat again. It felt great.”
