Musical virtuoso Jack White has a new band, The Dead Weather. It features Allison Mosshart from The Kills on vocals, Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence, dean Fertita from Queens of the Stone Age and White on drums. The upcoming album, to be released in June, is titled “Horehound” and was played to a select crowd at White’s Third Man Records.The Dead Weather played a set at the studio, playing for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride and even Meg White, as well as selected fans. The video below is “Hang You From the Heavens.” On first listen, it has a definitive garage rock feel. I also hear some PJ Harvey, and even some Nine Inch Nails in there.
*Since this writing, The Dead Weather have hit the road. Below is some footage of “Hang You From the Heavens,” performed at New York’s famed Bowery Ballroom during their first live gig.
