The new video for “Strange Times,” the first single for The Black Keys’ forthcoming album, Attack and Release, on Nonesuch Records, answers the question what happens when you put band members Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney in a laser tag arena? Hijinks, of course. It also answers the question, what happens when Auerbach and Carney are put in a laser tag arena and they’re armed with real lasers while unsuspecting teenagers are armed with nothing more than standard issue laser tag weapons? Hijinks, hysteria, and one big explosion.
Attack and Release by The Black Keys will be out April 1st on Nonesuch Records. In the meantime, you can practice your own laser tag with real laser guns skills at the Black Keys website.
