The Black Keys

The blues-rock duo were formerly managed by Q Prime South’s John Peets.

The Black Keys have parted with their longtime manager, Q Prime South’s John Peets, and are now represented by Steve Moir and Irving Azoff, sources tell Billboard.

Moir and Azoff also co-manage John Mayer and, along with Bernie Cahill, co-manage Dead & Co.

Q Prime South’s roster continues to include Eric Church, Brothers Osborne, Brett Eldredge and Ashley McBryde among others.

The switch comes as the blues-rock duo -- Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney -- prepare to release a 10th anniversary edition of their Grammy-award winning album, 2011’s El Camino on Nonesuch Records on Nov. 5. The release will be available in several configurations, including five LPs, four CDs and 3 LPs editions.

It follows the May release of The Black Keys’ 10th studio album, Delta Kream, a collection of blues-oriented covers that influenced the pair.

The Black Keys, which are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, headlined the Pilgrimage Festival in Nashville on Sept. 25, but have no other dates listed on their website.

Peets, Azoff and Moir declined to comment and the band could not be immediately reached for comment.
