Jack White‘s band The Raconteurs (also known as The Saboteurs in Australia) are about to head down under for Bluesfest 2019, and it looks like they’ll be playing new stuff from their recently finished upcoming album.
The band haven’t released an album in over a decade, since 2008’s Consolers of the Lonely, but they have confirmed that their new record is finished.
Taking to Twitter via Third Man Records, the band announced that the album was complete and that it’s “the rock & roll album you’ve been waiting for”.
The band was one of the last acts to join 2019’s huge Bluesfest lineup, but they’ve also just announced a massive Australian tour. Not only is it their first Aussie tour in history, but the tour marks the first shows they’ve played anywhere since 2011.
They’ve also made an explicit ban on mobile phones during these shows, in case you were looking to gram the whole thing.
