Jack White Forms The Dead Weather
Jack White has formed a new group called The Dead Weather with The Kills frontwoman Alison Mosshart. White takes drum and vocal duties, while The Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence and Queens of the Stoneage guitarist Dean Fertita round the four piece out.
The group debuted a handful of new tracks last night (March 11) in Nasvhille from their forthcoming album “Horehound,” due June 9 on White’s Third Man Records imprint. Two of the songs are available now on iTunes: “Hang You From The Heavens” and a cover of Gary Numan’s “Are Friends Electric?”
The group performed for an intimate crowd of 150 at the opening of White’s new headquarters. The office includes not only the label office, but also a vinyl shop, photography studio and performance stage.
The Dead Weather is planning to support “Horehound” with a tour this June.
