The Dead Weather Announce Australian/NZ Tour March 2010

Written by Daniel Clarke on November 14, 2009

Birthed from a collision of some of the greatest musicians in the genre, The Dead Weather includes Alison Mosshart of The Kills on lead vocals, Jack White, originally of The White Stripes on drums, White’s Raconteur bandmate Jack Lawrence on bass and former Raconteur Dean Fertita, also of Queens of the Stone Age, on guitar.

It all started when Mosshart filled in for an unwell White at the end of a Kills/Raconteurs tour. So noticeable was the chemistry that they realised there was potential to take things further. An impromptu jam session ensued and fifteen days later, Horehound was finished and The Dead Weather was formed.

Horehound, the band’s debut LP, was released earlier this year by White’s vinyl label Third Man Records (and out now through Sony Australia). It features a hybrid of styles with each member’s distinct contributions creating a sound like no other.

On the live front The Dead Weather have been taking the US and UK by storm. Their onstage presence reflects the raw energy sparking from their collaborative talent and is a performance certainly not to be missed!
