Jack White’s new supergroup: The Dead Weather


Let me just give you the lineup: fronting the band is The Kills’ Allison Mosshart with Jack White on backup vox and drums (cool!). Guitar is the Queens Of The Stone Age’s Dean Fertita and on bass is Jack Lawrence from the Raconteurs.

My jaw dropped. Really, it did (okay only a little but still). The band debuted at a gig for 150 people at White’s new Nashville offices for Third Man Records tonight/last night. Attendees got a 7″ of the band’s first single “Hang You From The Heavens.” 

You can listen to the track with another, “Are Friends Electric,” on the band’s official website.  Both songs are also up on iTunes, but there’s totally a Youtube video for “Hang You From The Heavens:”

    i think i’m going to die! imagine if the drum machine in the kills was replaced with jack white?! holy god. that’s like taking keanu reeves in the matrix and replacing him with denzel washington. take something not bad and replace it with the most awesome thing imaginible!
