The Raconteurs Announce New Album, Tour Dates

The Raconteurs

It’s been 11 years since The Raconteurs released an album, but this year they’re fixing that. Help Us Stranger will be released on guitarist/vocalist Jack White’s Third Man Records on June 21st.

The rest of the band includes guitarist/vocalist Brendan Benson, drummer Patrick Keeler, and bassist Jack Lawrence. Together they will be touring in support of the album, starting with a jaunt through New Zealand and Australia. They’ll then head to Japan before covering Europe and eventually heading to the U.S. starting June 12th in Detroit, Michigan. Their tour is set to wrap up October 18th in St. Louis, Missouri.

Help Us Stranger includes all new songs plus one cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness),” which you can hear here:
