The Black Keys have announced more 2012 U.S. tour dates that will bring them back out on the roads of America in October. The brief West Coast trek in support of their latest album, last year’s ‘El Camino,’ kicks off on Oct. 1 in Fresno, Calif., and currently is scheduled through an Oct. 10 gig in Las Cruces, N.M., with Canadian duo Tegan and Sara slated to open all stops.

The Black Keys currently are winding down their first-ever arena tour — its final date is Saturday (May 19) in Atlantic City, N.J. — and will take a break before heading to Dover, Del., for the previously announced Firefly Music Festival, which takes place July 20-22. Following that, the garage rock duo hits up the Catalpa Festival in New York City (July 28), Lollapalooza in Chicago, Ill. (Aug. 3) and Osheaga 2012 in Montreal, Quebec (Aug. 5) before jetting overseas for several European festivals running through a visit to the Reading Festival in Reading, U.K. (Aug. 26).

Following their West Coast trip, the Keys head to Australia and then back to Europe for a round of headlining dates. That’s quite an itinerary they have lined up, isn’t it? Check out their complete 2012 schedule here.
