With one of 2011’s biggest albums, El Camino, well behind them, the Black Keys are starting to think about LP number eight. The Akron, Ohio duo recently confirmed their intentions for a new full-length sometime next year.

Drummer Patrick Carney told CBS Local,

“It is definitely gonna happen in 2013. It’s just a matter of how long it takes us to make the album and deciding when we want to get back on the road. We’re going to start making a new album in January and we’re going to tour a little more in the spring. Our plan is the have the new album done by the end of spring or earlier, then hopefully take a few months off to do normal things like go to bed early and wake up early, walk the dog, that kind of stuff. Then we’ll probably be back on the road starting next fall."
