SPINreports that the Black Keys are getting their own documentary, which director Noah Abrams called "a buddy comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time." Abrams has followed the band on tour since January and will collect footage until August. He hopes to have the film out next year.
In his interview with SPIN, Abrams, a photographer and friend of the band, emphasized the humor in the footage he's gotten so far: "I'm fortunate enough to know both these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny."
The band is currently on a massive world tour that will take them to the end of 2012. Check out the dates and their video for "Tighten Up":
