Jack White's Dead Weather to tour this summer
Plus the collective will release more material after their debut album release
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."
