With music videos like those for "Howlin' for You," "Lonely Boy" and "Tighten Up" -- and, really, their interviews -- the Black Keys obviously have a pretty keen sense of humor, about themselves and the biz on the whole. Maybe that's why film director Noah Abrams is describing a forthcoming documentary on the duo to be a "buddy comedy."

The as-yet-untitled effort will collect footage through August this year, but will be ready in time for festival season in 2013.

Abrams told Spin that the doc is "a buddy comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time... A lot of music documentaries spend too much time trying to make people look cool. I'm fortunate enough to know both these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny."

Abrams is a friend of the band and photographer with some music festival clips under his belt.

Abrams will get plenty of opportunity to capture the band in action on stage during their extensive tour dates this summer. Black Keys have added more stops on the West Coast, with October dates with recent Immaculate Noise interviewees Tegan and Sara opening.
