Jack White As Drummer In New Band – The Dead Weather

For the 150 fans, friends and members of the media who showed up to the small warehouse in an industrial section of Nashville were given more than a tour of Jack White’s new label offices – they were present for the announcement and the debut of White’s new band, the Dead Weather. In his primary group, the White Stripes, Mr. White is known as one of rock’s finest guitarists. In the new band, though, he plays drums. Alison Mosshart, of the London-based duo the Kills, is the lead singer; Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age plays guitar; and Jack Lawrence, from Mr. White’s other band, the Raconteurs, is the bassist. The 11 songs on the “Horehound” album – 10 originals and a yowling cover of Bob Dylan’s “New Pony” – are spare and sexy, with vocals often distorted or submerged beneath grinding, snaky rhythms. (The first single, “Hang You From the Heavens,” was immediately made available on iTunes; the full album will be released in June.)
