SoundExchange has announced The Black Keys have been honored with the SoundExchange Hall of Fame Award, recognizing their stature as one of the most streamed acts in the music tech organization’s 20-year history.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have redefined rock music for a generation as The Black Keys, releasing powerful hits like ‘Tighten Up,’ ‘Lonely Boy,’ and ‘Gold on the Ceiling,’” said Michael Huppe, President and CEO of SoundExchange. “We are honored to present The Black Keys with the SoundExchange Hall of Fame Award.”

The Black Keys duo was presented the award during the SXSW conference and music festival in Austin, Texas. Carney and Auerbach delivered a keynote address, premiered the Jeff Dupre-directed documentary This is a Film About The Black Keys, and performed a pair of headlining sets.

The band will release its twelfth studio album, Ohio Players, on April 5 via Nonesuch/Warner Records.
