DODGE AND BURN – the band’s third album and first full-length release in five years – will be available everywhere on Friday, September 25th.
Released today, the brand new single, “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” is streaming now exclusively via global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL.

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 release. The Dead Weather have now unveiled the complete track list for DODGE AND BURN, which features the four previously released Vault tracks remixed and remastered and eight new songs:
The Dead Weather first united after Alison Mosshart’s band The Kills supported Jack White and Jack Lawrence’s band The Raconteurs on a string of North American dates. The trio followed the tour with a few informal recording sessions at White’s famed Third Man studio, soon augmented by Raconteurs collaborator/Queens of the Stone Age multi-instrumentalist Dean Fertita. The result proved extraordinary – The Dead Weather’s debut album, “HOREHOUND,” arrived in July 2009 to worldwide critical acclaim and a top 10 Billboard 200 chart debut. The four musicians celebrated the release with a 23-date North American tour before reconvening at Third Man in December for three further weeks of writing and recording.
Released less than a year after their debut, “SEA OF COWARDS” made it abundantly clear The Dead Weather had become more than a side project -- White, Mosshart, Lawrence, and Fertita were now a band. Ultimately named among the top 15 on Rolling Stone’s “30 Best Albums of 2010,” “SEA OF COWARDS” drew rave reviews for its aggressive songcraft and overwhelming intensity, as did a worldwide tour highlighted by sold out headline dates and showstopping appearances at such legendary festivals as Coachella, Glastonbury, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Since then, The Dead Weather collective has remained busy as ever, constantly adding new milestones to their already-illustrious résumés. 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 and DODGE AND BURN sees The Dead Weather pushing their creative line of attack to its very limits.
