The Black Keys can finally step away from the court room.
After months of legal proceedings, the blues-rock duo has settled the copyright infringement lawsuits that they filed against Pizza Hut (Yum Brands) and The Home Depot for allegedly misusing two of their songs in commercials, the Associated Press reports.
Singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, along with producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton, claimed that a variation of “Gold on the Ceiling” was used in a commercial for Cheesy Bites Pizza and “Lonely Boy” was supposedly used in an ad for Ryobi power tools. Both songs come off of their 2011 album El Camino and both were used without the band’s permission.
The Home Depot reportedly settled with The Black Keys in early November, while Pizza Hut reached an agreement with the band on Monday (November 26th). Formal dismissals are expected to be filed by attorneys in early January.
The Black Keys revealed they were starting work on a new album this summer, with the hopes of a 2013 release. Most recently, they lent the song “The Baddest Man Alive” to the new RZA film The Man with the Iron Fists, in theaters now.
