It may not be all too surprising that the Black Keys, a band that have been on the road for the better part of the last decade, have announced new tour dates. However, some fans may find it exciting and unexpected that the rock outfit have decided to bring along twin sister pop duo Tegan and Sara for their newly announced U.S. stint.

The 10-date West Coast trek kicks off on October 1st in Fresno, California, then hits Santa Barbara, San Diego, Los Angeles, Anaheim and Phoenix, before coming to an end in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Full itinerary can be found below.

A fan presale is going on now over at Artist Arena. You can get access by using username: "elcamino" and password: "tickets". Tickets go on sale to the general public this coming Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th.

Have a feeling that a new T&S LP is just around the corner. Until it's official, check out the music video for "Alligator", off 2009's Sainthood, below.
