A couple months ago Jack White launched Third Man Records’ Nashville offices via his newest supergroup, The Dead Weather. As we mentioned then, and as you know by now, the band’s made up of the Kills’ Alison Mosshart, Raconteur Jack Lawrence on bass, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Dean Fertita’s on guitar, and White doing the Phil Collins thing. We also told you that when they play live, White occasionally moved from behind the drumkit so he can sing with his face attached to Mosshart’s. Now you can feel awkward, too: Moving beyond their previous Nashville and NYC one-offs, the group just confirmed a number of dates for their first official tour. It starts June 11th in Louisville, keeps on going. They’ve also made it clear their debut album Horehound’s out mid-July. We have the dates and the cover.

Horehound is out 7/14 via Third Man/Warner Bros. As far as the live dates, limited pre-sale tickets are available starting tomorrow (5/13) noon EST at www.thedeadweather.com. Folks purchasing the pre-sale tickets also have a choice to pre-order the album. The possibilities:

    The DC tickets look like they’re no longer a part of the pre-sale, which is really unfortunate. Anyone know why?

    I’ve got tickets to see them in Vancouver, can’t wait! Was totally impressed by the reasonable cost of the tickets.

    Due to high demand, they scheduled a second show in New York, on Friday, July 17. Both the 16th and 17th shows were sold out and I can see why. I saw them on Friday and they gave an amazing performance!

    Did anyone catch that Dead Weather unannounced show at the Roxy awhile back? Shit was amazing. Even the opening band knocked my damn face off! Called MINI MANSIONS or something…..with Michael Shoes from Queens of the Stone Age i believe……fantastic stuff.
