Patrick Carney of The Black Keys debuts new band Sad Planets
The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney has a new project in the works. On April 19, he’ll release Akron, Ohio, the debut album from his new band called Sad Planets, which is a collaborative effort with John Petkovic of Death of Samantha and Sweet Apple.
Ahead of the release Sad Planets have shared the album’s lead single “Not Of This World.” The two artists, both Akron natives, combine their eclectic styles into the experimental, otherworldly sound. The album will also feature a guest appearance from J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.
“When Patrick asked if I wanted to come to Akron to jam with him in the studio, I saw it as a chance to work with a longtime friend, but also an opportunity to reconnect with Akron in a very different way,” Petkovic said in a press release.
