Listen to The Black Keys on iHeartRadio

The Black Keys are having a little fun with their record label before the release of their new album Turn Blue.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recently prank called the A&R departments at Nonesuch and Atlantic Records trying to get someone to check out their new band Quartzazium. 

They invite one man to fly out to see the band's last gig before the nonexistent "spring equinox," and promise another that they have their own PA system and lights so they'd be able to put on a show right in the label's offices. 

Unfortunately, they don't get anywhere with either suggestion.  But the Black Keys real album is still slated to be released next Tuesday, May 13th.
