Jack White has gone and done it again; And I'm bursting with ridiculous excitement because of it!
The Dead Weather , a gritty quartet featuring lead vocalist, Alison Mosshart of the duo, The Kills, releases their debut album in the states in less than two days!
Instead of fronting the group with an electric guitar—as in the White Stripes and his other current act, the Raconteurs—Jack White primarily plays drums and shares vocals for the new act.
According to Wall Street Journal online, "The new group took shape last winter during what was intended as a one-off recording session. Next came the group’s single, “Hang You From the Heavens,” built around a grizzled riff by guitarist Dean Fertita, and featuring churning drums from Mr. White."
And, quite frankly the song kicks ass; naturally leaving Mr. White and Miss Mosshart's fan base feigning for more.
While currently on a 28+ date tour, The Dead Weather’s debut album, “Horehound”, will be released in Europe on July 13th and in North America on July 14th (less than 2 days from now). We're pretty friggin stoked about it, too!
