Jack White's newly-formed band The Dead Weather are set to tour this summer and release new material towards the end of the year, guitarist Dean Fertita has revealed.

The band – which also features The Kills' Alison Mosshart and The Raonteurs' Jack Lawrence – are set to release their debut album, 'Horehound', in June.

Fertita told Billboard that the band had recorded material beyond that that would be released on 'Horehound', plus covers of Them's 'You Just Can't Win' and Downliner Set's 'Outside'.

"We still feel very much in the creative mode," he said. "We don't feel like we're ready to stop. I think we're going to try to maybe get a jump on. I don't know if it'll be a second record or singles to release throughout the year. There are a few things floating around, and there will be more soon, too."

He added that the band would hit the live circuit in the summer. "We know June through August we'll be doing a lot," he confirmed. "We plan to keep going through the fall and possibly beyond."
