Third Man recording group The Dead Weather – Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence – has officially released their long awaited new album. DODGE AND BURN is available today in stores and at digital retailers worldwide.
DODGE AND BURN – the Dead Weather’s third album and first full-length release in five years – is fast drawing critical acclaim from around the globe. “Five years after their last beautifully deranged outburst, Nashville’s freakiest supergroup return with another slice of dark absurdity,” declared ROLLING STONE AUSTRALIA in a four-starred rave while SPIN awarded the album a rating of 8-out-of-10, noting The Dead Weather are “an outfit whose members are hardly content to rest on their past achievements. DODGE AND BURN is one of their greatest.” “The Dead Weather’s finest work to date,” declared A.V.CLUB of the album’s closing track, “Impossible Winner,” calling it “exactly the kind of curveball that makes DODGE AND BURN so appealing.” The Dead Weather “administer a thorough scrubbing to knackered old garage-rock until it gleams like the chrome fender on a Dodge,” noted UNCUT, while CLASH praised DODGE AND BURN as “a sassy ball of madness coming at your ears at 120mph.” “DODGE AND BURN is finely crafted insanity,” raved CRAVE in its 9-out-of-10 rated review, “a retro-threaded storm of punk-blooded greatness, without apology or allegiance to anyone but their own. You leave the record wanting to be in the gang, an accessory to whatever crimes may come. And that’s just what they want.”
Highlighted by the new single, “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” and track “Cop and Go,” DODGE AND BURN has been heralded with a series of live performance videos, directed by Jack White and edited by Brad Holland and White. The most recent captures the full force of The Dead Weather as they blast through the primordial stomp of the new album’s “Be Still.” The video follows three previously released clips – including a live performance of “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” and instrument technique discussions from Jack White (drums) and Jack Lawrence (bass) – all of which can be viewed now at the band’s official TheDeadWeatherTV.
The Dead Weather recently blew the roof off of New York City’s Ed Sullivan Theater earlier this week with an electrifying performance of “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” on CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The appearance – which marked the band’s first public live performance in five years – is streaming now at the official Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube.
