The Dead Weather Debut At Third Man RecordsĂ˘€™ Nashville Opening Debut Single Available Exclusively On Itunes
March 12th 2009
Nashville, TN- Last night saw the very first performance of The Dead Weather, the brand new rock outfit consisting of Dean Fertita, Jack Lawrence, Alison Mosshart and Jack White.
The band performed at the opening of Jack WhiteĂ˘€™s new Third man Records building in downtown Nashville. Third Man Records is the imprint on which all WhiteĂ˘€™s music has been released over the years, acting as the label for all of The white Stripes and The Raconteurs releases around the world. The new Third Man Records includes a brand new company hq that will house the labelĂ˘€™s offices as well as a vinyl record store, photo studio, dark room and performance stage.
The Dead Weather's performance at the opening included several songs from their forthcoming debut album, Horehound. The band, fronted by Alison Mosshart (known to music fans as one half of London-based rock outfit The Kills) includes The RaconteursĂ˘€™ Jack Lawrence on bass, Queens of the Stone Age member Dean Fertita on guitar and Jack White on drums and vocals. White produced Horehound, which was recorded in just three weeks earlier this year at the newly constructed Third Man studio, also designed from the ground up by Jack White. The album will be released via Third Man in June.
Last nightĂ˘€™s event saw around 150 fans, family and friends attend the Third Man hq event, where their letter-pressed invitations were exchanged for limited edition 7Ă˘€ť vinyl pressings of The Dead WeatherĂ˘€™s debut single Ă˘€śHang You From the HeavensĂ˘€ť (b/w a stealth cover of gary numanĂ˘€™s Ă˘€śAre Friends Electric?Ă˘€ť).
