Dead Weather Ahead

The Dead Weather, the band featuring Jack White of White Stripes/Raconteurs fame along with Queens Of The Stone Age’s Dean Fertita, Alison Mosshart of The Kills and White’s Raconteurs bandmate Jack Lawrence, launches its summer tour on the East Coast in July. Right now there’s only a small number of dates, so you need to plan ahead on this one.
