Batten down the hatches! The Dead Weather  are back. The Nashville-based 4-piece have announced plans for the release of their sophomore album Sea Of Cowards. The band exploded onto the music scene early last year with a stunning debut that combined the furious talents of members Alison Mosshart (vocals/ guitar), Jack White (vocals/drums), Jack Lawrence (bass/drums) and Dean Fertita (guitar/organ). Horehound was an exhilarating and electrifying introduction to the band, a gritty blues-driven dirge rock masterpiece that stormed onto the Billboard Top 200 at #6 upon it’s release in July of 2009. Now, less than a year later, the follow-up is ready to be unleashed.

The Dead Weather first declared their existence in March of last year with a blistering kick-off performance at the brand new Third Man Records HQ in downtown Nashville. Within weeks they were selling out shows around the country and debut single “Hang You From The Heavens” was making a glorious racket at radio. The following 12 months were a whirlwind of breathtaking performances, magazine covers and TV appearances but, staying true to his reputation as one of music’s most energetic and prolific talents, Jack White didn’t even wait for the /Horehound /world tour to end before he led the band back into the Third Man studios to produce Sea Of Cowards.

The new album is a robust and vigorous second act, filled with primal, bone quaking rock rhythms and the same stellar urban blues and throbbing sleaze as its predecessor; but this time The Dead Weather push their sound even further, brilliantly building upon their raw chemistry to create the most vital sounding album you’ll hear all year.

The first single from Sea Of Cowards, “Die By The Drop,” is an agitated brain worm of a duet between Mosshart and White and was made available digitally March 30th.

Some previous praise for The Dead Weather:

" excellent album of sex sweat, bourbon breath, gun smoke and guitar sleaze...these are all top-notch songs...what a lovely way to burn." - Rolling Stone

“There’s no joke here—just mountains of chest-rattling primal rock designed to reassert the elemental power of the four-piece rock group. Mission accomplished.” - Los Angeles  Times

“The gritty, filthy sex appeal that characterizes the Dead Weather’s debut album from the very first track surges and throbs throughout the entire record, as Jack White’s ‘supergroup’ simultaneously lives up to the hype and defies expectations.” - Paste Magazine
