Born as a one-off collaboration between friends and tourmates, The Dead Weather has since evolved into one of the most vital and provocative bands in contemporary rock ‘n’ roll. Together Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita, and Jack Lawrence have created a dark magic all their own, a heady brew of melding heavy riffs, thick beats, and blues snarl with raw soul power and unrelenting sexual energy. “DODGE AND BURN” – the band’s third album and first full-length release in five years – sees The Dead Weather pushing their creative line of attack to its very limits on ferocious tracks like “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” and the brutally beautiful “Buzzkill(er).”

Recorded in Nashville during breaks in each member’s ever-busy schedules, “DODGE AND BURN” was heralded back in October 2013 as the band and Third Man Records announced an innovative long-term plan that would see a series of Dead Weather 7-inch singles released in the year and a half leading up the album’s 2015 release.

First out of the gate was “Open Up (That’s Enough)” b/w “Rough Detective,” released in January 2014 and followed in November by “Buzzkill(er)” b/w “It’s Just Too Bad,” the physical versions of both available exclusively via The Vault, Third Man’s oneof- a-kind subscription mail-order service. All four tracks are featured on “DODGE AND BURN,” remixed and remastered to sound as fierce and full-on as the album’s eight other new Dead Weather songs.
