Sneak Preview Video -- Jack White's New Band: The Dead Weather

Jack White, best known as half of the proto-punk duo, The White Stripes, and still on the heels of last year's excellent Consolers of the Lonely from his oft-dubbed supergroup, The Raconteurs, is back again with yet another new band, The Dead Weather. This time, White has teamed up with The Kills' Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita of Queens Of The Stone Age, and Jack Lawrence, also of The Raconteurs.

According to White's music label, Third Man Records, The Dead Weather will release their debut effort, Horehound, in June of this year. In the meantime, they have just released two songs from the album: the first single, Hang You From The Heavens, and its b-side, a cover of Gary Numan's Are Friends Electric?

Watch both of these videos below and stay tuned for the latest on what is sure to be an interesting record with a quality vinyl release!
