The Dead Weather

The Dead Weather

The Dead Weather are back. The Nashville-based quartet have announced plans for the release of their second album Sea Of Cowards. The band exploded onto the music scene early last year with a stunning debut that combined the talents of members Alison Mosshart, Jack White, Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita.

Horehound was an exhilarating and electrifying introduction to the band, a gritty blues-driven dirge rock masterpiece that stormed onto the Billboard Top 200 at #6 upon its release in July of 2009. Now, less than a year later, the follow-up is ready to be unleashed.

The Dead Weather first declared their existence in March of last year with a blistering debut performance at the brand new Third Man Records HQ in downtown Nashville. Within weeks they were selling out shows across America and debut single “Hang You >From The Heavens” was making a glorious racket at radio.

The following twelve months were a whirlwind of breathtaking performances, magazine covers and TV appearances but, staying true to his reputation as one of music’s most energetic and prolific talents, Jack White didn’t even wait for the Horehound world tour to end before he led the band back into the Third Man studios to produce Sea Of Cowards.

The new album is robust and vigorous, filled with primal, bone quaking rock rhythms and the same stellar urban blues and throbbing sleaze as its predecessor; but this time The Dead Weather push their sound even further, brilliantly building upon their raw chemistry to create the most vital sounding album you’ll hear all year.

Sea Of Cowards will be released on Third Man /Warner Bros. Records on May 10th 2010. The album is preceded by first single “Die By The Drop,” - an agitated brain worm of a duet between Mosshart and White – which will be released in the UK on April 26th.

The band have a run of dates scheduled for April and May, including a stop at this year’s Coachella Festival.
