Trendsetter is so excited to be working with critically acclaimed rock supergroup The Dead Weather! They’ve recently released their much-anticipated third studio album, Dodge and Burn, last fall with Jack White’s record label Third Man Records – their first full-length release in 5 years!
Started as a one-time collaboration between friends back in 2009, vocalist Alison Mosshart (The Kills), keyboardist Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), bassist Jack Lawrence (Raconteurs/Greenhornes), and drummer Jack White (The White Stripes) joined forces to push their creative limits by writing music together.
Born as a one-off collaboration between friends and tourmates, The Dead Weather has since evolved into one of the most vital and provocative bands in contemporary rock ‘n’ roll. Together Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita, and Jack Lawrence have created a dark magic all their own, a heady brew of melding heavy riffs, thick beats, and blues snarl with raw soul power and unrelenting sexual energy. “DODGE AND BURN” – the band’s third album and first full-length release in five years – sees The Dead Weather pushing their creative line of attack to its very limits on ferocious tracks like “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” and the brutally beautiful “Buzzkill(er).”
The Dead Weather first united after Alison Mosshart’s band The Kills supported Jack White and Jack Lawrence’s band The Raconteurs on a string of North American dates. The trio followed the tour with a few informal recording sessions at White’s famed Third Man studio, soon augmented by Raconteurs collaborator/Queens of the Stone Age multi-instrumentalist Dean Fertita. The result proved extraordinary – The Dead Weather’s debut album, “HOREHOUND,” arrived in July 2009 to worldwide critical acclaim and a top 10 Billboard 200 chart debut. The four musicians celebrated the release with a 23-date North American tour before reconvening at Third Man in December for three further weeks of writing and recording.
