Jack White has denied claims that he has more fun with The Raconteurs than with The White Stripes.

White, who hasn’t recorded with The White Stripes since 2005’s ’Get Behind Me, Satan’ and is currently playing a series of UK shows with The Raconteurs, hit back at the suggestion that he had moved on from his original band.

“People are assuming that The White Stripes is somehow painful for me, or too great a burden," he explained. "But I love the constrictions of The White Stripes. It really makes my brain do what my brain wants to do.”

He is, however, playing the following dates with The Raconteurs:[B]

Newcastle Academy (18)
London Brixton Academy (19,20)
Bristol Colston Hall (22)
Nottingham Rock City (23)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (24)
Liverpool University (25)
