unnamed 6 Jack White announces new live album from The Dead Weather

The Dead Weather are preparing to release a new live record of their 2009 performance at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles.

Hot on the heels of the release of their debut album “Horehound, The Dead Weather played an absolutely incendiary set at the legendary Mayan Theater in Los Angeles on August 26th, 2009. This fiery performance captures the band at their most feral and raw, firing on all cylinders, full of broken glass, black leather and strobe lights. For YEARS this show has been whispered about as one of the best shows the band has ever played, so now felt a better time than ever to release this performance into the world. Featuring audio expertly mixed by Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell, the immersive concert film The Dead Weather: Live at the Mayan directed by Vern Moen is revelatory. The band’s signature gems like “Hang You From the Heavens” and “Treat Me Like Your Mother” sit pretty with explosive non-album B-sides like “You Just Can’t Win” (originally by Them) and “A Child of a Few Hours is Burning to Death” (originally by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band). The companion audio of Live at the Mayan marks the first-ever live LP from The Dead Weather’s first year and serves as a blistering reminder as to why this band still matters. Your stereo will thank you…your neighbors, maybe not so much.

Coupled with the LP/DVD of the Mayan performance is the final 7” 45rpm installment from the “Dodge and Burn” album. As folks should remember, every song from the band’s acclaimed 2015 album was exclusively released on 7” format via the Vault. “Three Dollar Hat” b/w “Lose the Right” on beautiful black and yellow vinyl is the final piece of the puzzle. As a special treat, subscribers for Vault Package #32 will receive a deluxe box to house ALL six singles from “Dodge and Burn” Vault releases.

The album, mixed by Grammy winning Award-winner Vance Powell, will be used as part of a concert film for Third Man Records’ Vault Package #32 having been directed by Vern Moen.

Third Man Records, owned by Jack White himself, will release the record via the label’s subscription service and titled ‘The Dead Weather: Live at the Mayan , according to the press release.

The setlist withholds fan favourites like ‘Treat Me Like Your Mother’, ‘I Cut Like a Buffalo’ and ‘Hang You From the Heavens’:

Third Man is happy to announce the contents of our 30th Vault package, our final offering of 2016. This time around we wanted to showcase something special from every one of Jack White’s wide berth of musical projects, as well as some really cool extras from a pretty special event that fans were able to catch a glimpse of during Sunday’s Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Nashville episode, but weren’t able to hear in full. We got so excited putting this package together we decided to break with tradition and offer 2 full LPs for the first time.

Live at Disgraceland: From Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown LP
Anthony Bourdain and his team descended on Nashville hungry for culture and knowledge (as well as hot chicken, tasting plates, and tequila); they visited every nook and cranny of this town, hung with the locals, ate like czars, partied like rock stars, and woke up every morning fresh as daisies and ready to do it again. Parts Unknown does not come to your city in order to present a slide show of tourist spots and magazine cover spreads. Bourdain wants to understand what makes a city tick. He has a knack for getting down to the marrow of how a town’s denizens think and live, why they do what they do in their community, and how that relates to the country at large in this time and place, Earth 2016. This is a man after our own heart and we were so happy to welcome him into our world for a few, too-short days. Their time here culminated with a rager of party at Disgraceland (location… unknown) where The Dead Weather, The Kills, and William Tyler all played jaw dropping electric live sets, living room style, to a house full of well-fed, newly tattooed, appreciative friends. Wish you could have been there? Wish granted: we present the night’s musical entertainment in full for your listening pleasure…

The Dead Weather
1. Hang You From The Heavens
2. Gasoline
3. I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)

The Kills

The Raconteurs – Live at Irving Plaza NYC April 7th 2006 LP
It’s been just over ten years since the first Raconteurs show on American soil. This release celebrates that momentous occasion with another hard slab of wax from the infamous Third Man Records tape vaults. Featuring cover art inspired by the original concert poster by long time visual collaborator Rob Jones, and featuring a set of songs that would prove to be classics, this album is a solid testament to the early fury and energy of those nascent and exciting times when The Raconteurs were first introduced to the world on the live stage.

Full set list:

Intimate Secretary
Steady, As She Goes
Store Bought Bones

Broken Boy Soldier

Music video for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” from The Dead Weather’s new album Dodge and Burn – out September 25th.

The Dead Weather was formed (beginning in 2009) very versatile and very busy guitar hero Jack White, the beautiful singer Alison Mosshart (also with The Kills) as well as musicians Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence ( The Raconteurs). We have already heard their spirited rock through two albums Horehound (2009) and Sea of Cowards (2010).The group created six years ago is finally back with another twelve songs entitled encoded Dodge and Burn. Recorded in Nashville, it was released  25 th September. Yeah!



Earlier this summer The Dead Weather—Jack White, Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), Alison Mosshart (The Kills), and Jack Lawrence—announced that they would finally be putting out their first album since 2010 this fall. Last week the rock ‘n’ roll supergroup shared “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)”–the first single from their upcoming album Dodge and Burn. So soon after, they’ve already shared their second single “Cop and Go,” which may be even better than the first.

The band’s first single was very gritty and unpolished, but that’s what made it great. This new single “Cop and Go” feels just as gritty but there’s more structure to the entirety of it—the lyrics, the instrumentation—that makes this single feel instantly stronger. “Cop and Go” is filled with energy that can barely be squeezed into tiny earphones. It deserves to be blasted at full volume until it’s felt. With these two first singles, there’s no doubt that The Dead Weather’s new album Dodge and Burn—due out September 25th via Third Man Records—will be a brilliant one.

The Dead Weather will celebrate Dodge and Burn with a hugely anticipated visit to CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The appearance – which marks the band’s first official live performance in five years – airs Monday, September 14 at 11:35/10:35c (check local listings).

The band has also just unveiled an electrifying new live performance video for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” directed by Jack White and edited by Brad Holland and Jack. 
An additional series of live performance and technique and instrument-based videos will be rolled out in the coming weeks. The first episode of the technique videos, released yesterday, features Jack White discussing and demonstrating his drumming. The clip – which comes paired with a powerhouse live rendition of The Dead Weather’s now-classic debut single, “Hang You From The Heavens” – is available now on Modern Drummer.

Meanwhile, the official “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” companion video – directed by award-winning duo Ian & Cooper
