And Alison Mosshart of The Kills is the singer. There was a rumor going around town that The White Stripes were playing a secret show tonight, but the show in question was to grandly open the new office/performance space dedicated to Jack White's label, Third Man Records
. The Dead Weather
made their debut performance and handed out 7-inch singles in sleeves hand-painted by the band.
You can check out the two songs from said single, "Hang You From the Heavens" and "Are Friends Electric?" (Gary Numan cover) over at the band's website
. Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita round out the lineup, and the band have a full-length, Horehound
due out in June. The album was produced by--you guessed it--Jack White, and recorded at the brand new Third Man Studio, which was designed "from the ground up" by you-know-who.
