THE DEAD WEATHER/Horehound: The debut album from THE WHITE STRIPES' Jack White + friends

THE DEAD WEATHER's debut album, Horehound, available NOW!

The latest musical adventure by Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs), epitomizes the alt-rock ethic--do the music you love, do it yourself, and do it fast. The Dead Weather brings together lead singer Alison Mosshart (half of the London-based lo-fi post-punk duo The Kills), Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Dean Fertita, The Raconteurs' bassist Jack Lawrence, and White on drums and vocals. White also produced the group's debut album, Horehound, recorded in just three weeks earlier this year at his newly constructed Nashville studio. An exhilarating mix of punchy blues singing from Mosshart and garage rock with arena ambitions, Horehound introduces the musical whirlwind that is The Dead Weather.

A garage rock icon, White also leads The White Stripes, which boasts the gold White Blood Cells, platinum and Top 10 Elephant, #2 Get Behind Me Satan and, most recently, the gold, #2 Icky Thump and its gold title track. The latter three have each won the Grammy® for Best Alternative Music Album. White also helms The Raconteurs, whose Broken Boy Soldiers and Consolers Of The Lonely each went Top 10. The hard rockin' Queens Of The Stone Age, with Fertita, earned gold for the Songs For The Deaf album and has won four Grammys.
