The Keys are out to support new album "Turn Blue," due May 13 via Nonesuch

One of rock's biggest and bluesiest 2014 tours has just been announced. The Black Keys have unveiled an extensive run of headlining dates for the second half of the year via a smart-alecky "press conference" video that features Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney as rival politicians.

After a stop at Alabama's Hangout Music Festival in May, the Keys embark on a month-long European trek starting June 20 in Germany. Starting Sept. 5, the band kicks off a long string of North American arena dates with Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg and St. Vincent in support, respectively.

The tour is of course in support of their upcoming studio album "Turn Blue," due out May 13 on Nonesuch.

Never ones to pass up a good viral internet joke, the Keys announced "Turn Blue" back in March via an eccentric, mock-infomercial YouTube video via a tweet from Mike Tyson's Twitter account.
