The Dead Weather Reveals Details About Upcoming LP
But the indie-rock supergroup won't be touring the new album.
While Jack White announced that he would be taking a major touring hiatus earlier this spring, it seems like we won’t have time to miss the guitar master with this morning’s news that The Dead Weather‘s third album will be out in a matter of months. The garage supergroup—White, Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs), and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age)—will return to the airwaves in September with Dodge & Burn.
The album will feature four songs previously released by the group (as part of a Third Man Records 7″ in 2013), as well as eight brand-new songs. White’s Third Man label will also release the group’s only limited-edition version of Dodge & Burn as part of its LP subscription package (Vault Package #25 to be exact). The deluxe version features a fancy colored vinyl version of the record, a poster, and “a deck of custom Dead Weather playing cards designed by Silent Giants featuring the band members as the King, Queen, Jack and Joker.”
As you ponder whether TMR made White the King or the Jack in the deck, check out those already released Dead Weather tracks that you will hear again—in a remastered form—this fall.
Dodge & Burn will be released in September via Third Man Records.
