The Dead Weather

Everyone loves a little bit of hype. So it would only make sense to surround that hype around The Dead Weather. Not just any new group of adolescent kids trying to get rich or get girls. The Dead Weather are a 'supergroup.' According to Wikipedia, a Supergroup is "a rock music group whose performers are already famous from having performed individually or in other groups." So here is the part where I fill you in. The Dead Weather consist of, vocalist Alison Mosshart (of The Kills), guitarist Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age), bassist Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes) and drummer/vocalist Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs). Is that a super enough super group for you? New single Hang You From The Heavens is typically raw and dirty with riffs that are similar with all the members other bands. Nonetheless, it is pretty good and will be interesting to see how the rest of the album sounds. "Horehound" is released on May 14th worldwide and a North American tour begins 16th July in New York.

Check out The Dead Weather site for more info and to listen to the new single.
