News: Jack White and Alison Mosshart Have A New Band

Jack White (White Stripes, Racounters) and Alison Mosshart (the Kills) have announced the formation of a new band called Dead Weather. The group also includes two touring members of the Racounters, Dean Fartita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence.

Given how much I love the hip, gritty sound of the Kills, the raw, indie-rock-fuelled blues of the White Stripes and the catchy garage rock of the Racounters, this is very, very good news.

But the White Stripes will continue as well, right?

Yeah, that's the official plan...but the White Stripes are rumored to be having a tough time keeping it together these days so this might be a nail in the coffin. I hope not, though!

The Racounters continue as well.
