New Raconteurs Album, Plus Tour

The Raconteurs have just made a new record, and given one week notice on it's release! The disc will be available on March 25th in CD, vinyl, and digital formats, and is entitled Consolers Of The Lonely. Considering we were a tad underwhelmed by the Stripes' last offering, and subsequent show cancellation, we're glad to see that Jack White's keeping things happening with his other major project. We're not entirely sure what to expect, but we're hoping this disc goes more in the direction of "Intimate Secretary" (which is to say, full of analog synth goodness) than it does towards "Yellow Sun". But that's just us.

Apparently, in addition to getting this new record out with any media interference, the band has also subsequently booked a tour. No mention on the Bimbo's website yet, but the band claims to be playing a show there on April 23rd....we'll keep our eyes open. In the meantime, March 25th is just a week away!
