Ohio natives The Black Keys are set to release their first album in over five years, after taking an unexpected hiatus. The band started to crumble in 2015 after their drummer, Patrick Carney, suffered a shoulder injury while swimming in the ocean that left it dislocated. A few months later when the band had anticipated that he was going to be recovered they cancelled their tour. He had developed an infection in his shoulder and was suffering from “Frozen Shoulder” and was unable to play. He says that all the trials with his shoulder left him with PTSD and tanked his relationships with his bandmates. They weren’t communicating effectively and started to splinter. Until recently when they began to work together again and re-build their friendship and trust. There newest music video addresses the tension that was in the band the last five years and depicts them going to therapy to work on their relationship.
It was actually during the hiatus doing solo work and collaborations with other musicians that Patrick met his wife, Michelle Branch, while he fell in love recording an album with her. Although The Black Keys have been through some struggles the past five years, I don’t know that they would change it with things finally looking promising again with their singles climbing the charts and their personal lives more settled.
